The felting kit used in this review was provided by Going Gnome for an honest review. The opinions in this review are those of Jessie Rayot.
This summer I discovered Going Gnome felting kits. I’ve never tried needle felting before, and I thought it would be fun to give it a go. Plus the ladies at the booth were just so much fun, and they assured me that even someone who had never tried before could make the mushroom kit. They were also kind enough to give me an already made mini gnome to pose in the photographs. He’s a bit cheeky, and I couldn’t get him to stay in one place for all the pictures.
The kit includes everything you need to make the mushrooms except a felting pad. I used a small scrap of upholstery foam like what you can find at most fabric stores. There are even 2 needles in the kit in case you break one. (I did not brake any!!!)
You start right away with the mushroom base, and the instructions explain nicely how to do so. It was really cool to see the wool felt up!
I had a great time making my mushrooms, I can see how this could become a very addictive hobby. The finished items are so adorable!
I was very happy with the kit. There were plenty of supplies, and the instructions were clear. As I said, I had never even tried needle felting before, and I was able to make the mushrooms from this kit with no problem. That should tell you the kit is great!
You can head on over to Going Gnome and pick up some kits for yourself or for holiday gifts. If you poke around the site a bit, you’ll see they have finished items you can purchase as well, but I think making them is so much more fun!! You can also buy felting supplies from them, including a felting pad that can be used over and over. Check them out, and get felting, my friends!
