felting






I have been a bit off colour of late and so I wanted something I could sit rugged up in bed and do...that threw a few ideas out the window...except...felting, and so I got out my needle and wool and picked up Needlefelting Magic (by Barbara Allen) and got busy on creating my first little teddy bear...I have named him Peek-a-boo Panda.
It was amazing to see hanks of wool turn into something so cute.
