This is my first needle felted creation (well actually third time lucky- 1st was done in the wrong wool and his hand fell off bear_sad second was nearly there but ended up with sausage fingers :lol:) It could become another addiction! I have to give credit to the very talented Sara Renzulli   http://www.sarafinafiberart.com/ as it is her fantastic tutorials that has shown me the way. I didn't even know what core wool was until I stumbled on her via Etsy. By the time I was on Graham I was already trying out my own little changes and seeing more possibilities. There is a lot to take in about different types of wool and needles but I am beginning to pick it up and like any thing it is trial and error. The other bonus is the more I learn the less I stab my fingers (boy it hurts  :cry:) and break needles Be interested to know how others learnt how to needle felt?

I Love it!!!!! Very well done, even his little feet are perfect.

I am a huge rodent fan and want to make them myself, but haven't had the courage yet.

This one is so cute  :love:
