Today I am here to share with you all the 12 very important rules to needle felting. I have come to know these rules well in my time, ha we asked for forgiveness from the Felting Gods and Goddesses for my impure thoughts and maybe breaking one or two of their commandments. Today I ask for forgiveness for number 2. I misplaced a single needle. I prayed to the Goddess of lost needles and she helped me quickly find the needle under the couch.
I hope for beginners and experienced felters alike having these Commandments close by will strengthen your belief in the felting Gods. Is there a commandment you need to ask forgiveness for today?
