I have been trying my hand at some little bird's and they are coming out soooo cute! I made this little guy a couple of days ago and listed him on my Artfire and Etsy sites. I was almost thinking of keeping him because he's just so adorable, but alas I can't keep everything I make right!

In honor of learning how to needle felt. I have also made this little pumpkin that is available right now in my shop. He's listed as a pay it forward listing and is only .20 cents to buy plus shipping of course. If you happen to purchase him please pay it forward in some way either by listing something cheap or just helping someone out.
What have I broke down for you ask? Well I went out and bought myself a needle for felting. I have some organic merino wool that I bought a while back and haven't done a lot with so I thought to branch out and try my hand at needle felting. Well of course I never really try a small project first I always have to jump right in and try the hardest thing I can think of. Of course I wanted to make my niece something for Christmas so I opted for a cat as my first needle felting project. It was an experience and I have already broken one of my felting needles! oopps! but I think he turned out wonderful.
Anyways on to the finished project. I'm hoping she will love it. So what do you think?
