Felted Chickadee

This picture was taken back in January with my friend, Janice, who started working on my felted chickadee for my red "Lucy Bag"   (<-- click)  which has also been felted and came to a standstill.  Janice became ill and I told her that I would finish the project as she had already taught be the basics of needle felting. See "Joan's Bag" for more information.

You can see the printed picture Janice is working from.  She teaches art at a local school and is quite talented.
A reminder of the lining I selected.

today's Blog Recommendation:  "Designs By Gollum"  I love the pictures, the food, the decorations, etc.  I can fantasize, can't I since time, money and space don't allow?

Happy Knitting!


  1. One of these days I must try felting. A woman in my knitting group steered me toward a pattern for a felted bag with musical notes on it...might be my first project...

  2. Love the Lucy bag and the embellishment should look great -- can't wait to see it!

  3. Hope she's feeling better, love the little chickadee, they're such sweet little birds and fun to watch.


  4. Hope you had fun at the Ultimate Blog Party! I know its over but I'm still partying and visiting some new blogs! :)

  5. Chickadees are just about my very favorite bird, and that felting looks so pretty. What a neat project.

  6. One of my friends came to knitnight last night with a felted chickadee! So I have now see one in the wild. It was absolutely marvelous.

  7. ohmy i love these bags, what creativity Janice has =) Going to check out Designs by Gollum =)

  8. Thank you for sharing, I love that felted bag. I really haven't done any felting (on purpose anyway :P) and think when I make sure I have enough to splurge I will purchase the pattern and give it a try. The other felted thing I want to eventually give a try is the felted clogs I've seen :).
