Accessory Club
Needle Felting
Friday March 23’s Accessory Club is a needle felted cell phone or accessory purse. This is a felted project that we will then needle felt on. The sample is using Ozark Handspun for the needle felting. The free pattern follows and is a very quick knit, taking about 2 hours. It is a fun, free form project.

We hope to see you there!
