I made this felted shroom from 2 colours of Lion Wool and some beautiful hand-dyed roving by Wendo Van Essen. There's a rock and a piece of cardboard at the base so it stands up.

Oh wow, my teenager would love one of those in his bedroom! 

I just noticed that they started selling small packages of brightly colored roving at my local Ben Franklin Store. Hmm...I feel an inspiration coming on........

You crochet or knit with wool yarn and then wash it in warm water to sort of shrink and fuse the fibers together. It makes the fabric really tough and thick and you can then needle felt fiber on top like it looks like she did. Smiley

Great job! I love the colors!
