I made my first real attempt at needle felting tonight
I made a wee felt version of my sun conure, Peanut.
It ended up really tiny because I hadn't realized when I started how compacted the wool gets when you needle felt it all together. It's only about 1.5'' tall. I think I'll try for something bigger next time, because there was a lot of accidental finger stabbing. Yowch.
The other side
My wee little first felt creature
The likeness is unmistakable, and Peanut is weirded out by the little thing.
He is suspicious... and will keep a close watch on this tiny imposter.
Thanks for looking
