I've been intrigued by needlefelting for months, but I didn't think I'd be able to tolerate it as I am sensitive to wool. Turns out, it's not a problem for me (I don't know why but I'm not complaining!). So I picked up some roving and felting needles and had a go. This is the result; she is based on my childhood pet guinea pig Cinnamon (I worked from photographs):
I added round black onyx beads for eyes and embroidered the nose and mouth with embroidery floss, but apart from that she is all felted wool. I have a couple more pics on my blog too, and a bit more detail.
I love needlefelting! I can see why people find it so addictive
