THank you!!!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

I've been working this little (2.5-3") guy today -

I was going to do more detailing on the wings/back, but given his size I think that might make him too busy. I'm going to let him (and me) rest and think about that idea for a while.

Thanks for your input on the reverse barbed needles! I'm glad to learn that they are useful for you!

I doubt that the merino breaks more when using these needles, but your point about using them with a coarser fiber is a good one! Merino is so fine that would be difficult to get the same results as one can get with regular rooting. Coarser fiber would be far more visible so the results would also be more impressive as seen in the photos of your work on your blog! (thanks for sharing the link  Cheesy )

Thank you!!!  Cheesy  Cheesy

I've got a lot more owls made. These are quite fun to make. Did a spectacled owl yesterday that was very interesting.

Here are a couple more pictured with the barn owl you've already seen:

Thanks!!!  Cheesy Cheesy

I think I spent a couple hours making this guy. I'm in the process of making more and different types of owls - trying to figure out the best way to put them together so that the process is faster and easier to explain and do.

I'm working on a series of small owls. I will do some "realistic" and others just for fun. This one is about 2.5". I'm very pleased with how he turned out! =^..^=

Hope your experiments are successful and that you'll be posting photos so we can see what you've made!!

I do agree that the colors are lovely!! Just the sort of yarn I would buy!!  Cheesy

What fun projects!!!

I took a millinery class eons ago, but it didn't include any wet felting techniques. There are so many possibilities!!

Have you tried using a felting stone (instead of the glass washboard)??

It's probably not *impossible*, but it would have certain difficulties. To make it easier, you'd need to "unspin" the wool in question. Is there a particular reason why you want to use this spun wool??

Do you have some carding brushes (or 2 wire dog brushes) around?
Trying cutting your spun wool into 1.5" lengths and card with the wire dog brushes - That ought to unspin the wool and make it easier to needle felt.

I've been putting this together as a class for CraftArtEdu. Almost have it done. Hopefully I will have it finished today. I made the first mouse like this many years ago to go with one of my Prittens. It's an easy project and fun to make. I keep meaning to do a variation making bunny ears and tail - I think that would work just as well. =^..^=
