Some More Needle-felted Creations By Me!

I am so addicted to this needle-felting.
When folks ask me about how I do it I say this:

Remember the story of sleeping beauty? She pricks her finger on a spindle needle?
Ever think what a spindle needle is? It is a very sharp needle with barbs on it.
You take a hunk of carded wool fluff and press the needle into it repeatedly to shape it. The ball of fluff gets smaller and smaller and out comes a creation from imagination.

A very old toymaking trade.

Chief the Dragon

Sleeping Smouse

Sandy Bear, Pinky Bear, Lilly Ladybug, Rose, and Humphry Bunny

Humphry and Chief and Smouse will go on my other web site soon to Auction on Ebay.
I will let you know when they are up.

Oh my gosh these guys are SO cute! I knit but I've never tried felting, and I know there's also a way to felt soap (my main addiction, alongside knitting and anime) too.

I'm going to have to try this to see if I can come anywhere near getting something as cute as these.

Oh--found you on BlogMad and voted thumbs up!
