I know you've heard me talk about Fancy Tiger before. I suggest you get used to it because I have no intentions of ever giving up on my love for this fabulous craft shop.
Last month while I was in Denver I took a trip to Fancy Tiger with Rachel to check out all of the amazing fabrics and yarn they had in stock. I was not disappointed. Their yarn inventory has multiplied and every single bolt of fabric is irresistible. Plus I got to chat with Jaime, one of the owners. She and Amber are the master minds behind Fancy Tiger and when I grow up, I want to be just like them.
While at Fancy Tiger I had to check out their new supply of needle felting kits. Have you tried needle felting? I bought my first kit two years ago and was immediately hooked, er, felted. Needle felting requires a small barbed needle that is used to fuse the fibers of wool roving together into a shape or sculpture. It is one of those crafts that I consider to be perfect for everyone. It is small, inexpensive, and has unlimited possibilities. All you have to do is be careful that you don't stab yourself with the felting needle which, you probably will, but it will be okay.
I really want you to try needle felting. I think it will make you happy. And what a simple little handmade stocking stuffer! Fancy Tiger has kindly offered a Penguin Ornament Needle Felting Kit from their holiday collection. This kit comes complete with everything you need to learn to needle felt. I promise you will be able to make this adorable little penguin in an evening. However, when it comes to making enough penguins to cover your front yard, I can't make any promises.
One Penguin Ornament Needle Felting Kit.
Kit includes everything needed to make TWO penguin ornaments: wool roving, felt scarves, safety cube (to prevent the stabbing) one barbed felting needle, and easy to follow instructions.
