Actually, I've wanted to give needlefelting a try for over a year. I bought this kit last November, thinking I might actually finish it for Easter. Well, I finished it for Easter. Easter 2009. Last night, I finally opened up the cute little carryout container it came in and gave it a go. I'm pretty stinkin' pleased with the results! Wonder of wonders, it actually looks like a bunny. And it was supposed to look like a bunny! Now, I find this totally amazing, because I can't draw and I'm not all that good with the playdoh, so it was surprising to me that I could sculpt a respectable looking bunny out of wool.
This afternoon, I placed an order with The Felted Ewe. I ordered a foam mat (I actually removed the foam sole from a perfectly good pair of slippers so I could make my bunny), some beads to use for eyes and several different colors of woving. Lil' Kay wants me to make a shark, and I'd like to try some dinosaurs. Now I'm just waiting impatiently for my order to get here. I have some white roving left over from the bunny, but I'm not sure what to make with it. Snowman? Polar bear? Albino lizard?
