Long story short (there are TONS more details and pics on my blog). I wanted to felt something but I don't know how to use a washer, so it had to be small. I didn't want something I'd never look at again, so I opted for a catnip mouse. It's made from KnitPicks Wool of the Andes in the color Carrot. It's a really pretty burnt orange color. 100% hand felted. I'm so excited that it turned out so great. Mr. Mouse is stuffed with catnip and polyfil. The color is more accurate in the top pic, although it's still washed out by the flash.

So cute!  Did you stuff him after he was felted, or before?
