Needle Felting Experiment

I finally gave in an tried needle felting. I have been admiring all the little creatures that people have made with this technique for ages but kept telling myself that I didn't need to take up a new craft. This weekend I gave in and bought some wool roving, a few felting needles, a foam block and a wonderful needle felting book from Woolbuddy off of Amazon (kindle edition) http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=node%3D154606011&field-keywords=woolbuddies. The book has lots of instructions to make all kinds of wonderful little wool buddies and is completely suitable for beginners. I decided to make the frog since it was supposed to be one of the easiest. He took me about 1.5 hrs and I have to say that he wasn't at all hard to make! The instructions in the book are marvelous and although my little guy didn't turn out quite as good as the one in the book, I think he is smashing for a first try :-)


Woolbuddy also sells kits on etsy at https://www.etsy.com/shop/woolbuddy and at their website http://woolbuddy.com/. I can't wait for the Cactus Monster kit I ordered from them to arrive!
