I bought some needle felting needles the other day while buying yet more roving (I use it to make thrummed mittens like these
And followed the tutorial up above on how to make the little felted balls or beads....
I have strung them on some narrow satin ribbon, and have decided that I am going to give them to a friend who is having Chemo to cheer her up

Then, feeling brave about making 3-D objects, I decided to have a go at a figure... I already knew how to make a ball, so I made one of those, then a sausage for the body. I joined the 2 together and then added some arms and hair.....
And I made 4 little people to give to my 4 girls - even the "big" one at 9 yrs old was thrilled with hers!
They are all around 2" tall btw - hand-sized for the youngest one, and perfect for slipping into a pocket. Actually, they remind me of Jelly-babies
