    Tiny these are amazing! You should really think about making them to sell. I see these on etsy for quite a pricetag. Custom ones seem to be in popular demand.

    Thank you.
    I just think it takes me too long to finish one to get more than a few dollars an hour. IN any case, I hope to try some simpler ones. It's very soothing to just sit and listen to the TV (you can't look away from the felting needle or you'll be sorry) and felt away for hours.

    Tiny - quick question, can a person used old sweaters for making felt? I have loads of old sweaters and have thought of using them for this, but just haven't got around to it!!!

    I believe you can! I think you either unravel the yarn and kind of shread it, or, you can felt the sweater itself, then cut it into pieces and sew it as you like. I have seen people make neat wrist warmers with the sleeves of sweaters. I have made felted footpads from old , felted wool sweaters. I wash them in hot water, then dry in the drier, three or four times. Of course, they shrink. Then , cut out a "Dr. Schol's " type footbed. Soft and warm!

    finished the Kitty!

    I kept working on him and now I like him and think he doesn't look as weird as he did before. I didnt' have any real fishing line for his whiskers, but this is "backing" for flyfishing line. I waxed it to make it stay a bit stiffer.

    With his teeth he reminds me of the Siamese cats from "Lady and the Tramp"

    my "monster"

    Not sure what this is or is meant to be. Just goofing around. Not sure I like his extra eyes on stalks. Something weird about it. (something is always weird about my creatures!)

    I love both of them though I do like the cat a teensy bit more. It's so **** cute.

    Thanks to Shoebox!

    Shoebox sent me an entire box full of natural wools (no dyed wool, some carded some not). I put this together last night. It took me more than 6 hours~!

    And you're a beginner felter?! It's AMAZING! I'm so glad the wool can be put to good use, and I LOVE the mane and tail (Why can't I be good at things like this?)

    And I love the spotty butt, of course ;) (actually I think the butt is my favorite part, aside from the happy horse expression. Such an adorable felt booty, with the adorable tail)!
