I made a ladybug family for my Etsy store! They're completely needle-felted, and I have to say that needle-felting is VERY therapeutic. There is something wonderful about stabbing an inanimate object over and over when you've had a bad week...
Just kidding. :)
Really, though it's terribly fun. I never realized how much you can shape the wool by poking it just the right way. I had purchased wool roving last week with the intention of making needle-felted beads for my jewelry, but Todd surprised me with this ladybug kit for St. Nick's. I spent the morning today felting ladybugs. I may just have to make more needle-felted items soon.
I'm thinking of making a needle-felted nativity set. Wouldn't that be cool?
