Moon Dancer

I first did these little felted people and animals about 20 years ago and for some reason, have never shared them here on the blog. I thought they might make fun, last minute holiday gifts and ornaments.

I have been a beader longer than I have been a machine knitter so it was only natural for me to combine my two loves. Keep in mind that, in addition to beading and embroidery and ribbons and such, you can always embellish the forms themselves (case in point, the well endowed “chorus girl” I knitted in pink and have not yet embellished)

The figure at left has “an empty head” where you could easily add a character bead. The well endowed chorus girl is on the right.

I hope you have fun embellishing these Felted Folk – I would love to see some photos of what you do!
