Hoo.

Helloooooo. Have you tried needle felting yet?



I can't believe I hadn't done it until now. Yesterday, Rachel, Amanda and I made a pilgrimage to Fancy Tiger in Denver and both came home with adorable felting kits. After a night giddy and high on craft...I am the owner of this lovely little owl. N8tron helped with the eyes and nose shaping too!

It was so easy. Like, confusingly easy. I have a feeling that when I move on to making things with legs and shapes other than a ball, it might be a little more difficult...but I can't wait. It's possible my floor will soon be covered with little felt things.

P.S. You should check out Rachel's blog for pictures of her equally adorable Robin!

Very cute. Did you have to knit it and then felt it? I've yet to felt anything I've knitted, but I'm interested in expanding my knitting repertoire that way. (I'm Serin's sister, btw...)
