I made these for a swap partner and was really happy with how they came out.  Both were needle felted.  Sometimes I walk away from a project without poking myself at all (like with the mini bird) and other times I am literally a bloody mess by the time it is all said and done.   Cheesy 

This mini bird was inspired by something on my mystery partner's wist.  Made with wool roving except for the feet.  Feet made with cheap craft felt.  Quarter for size reference:

And the closest thing that I think I could ever come to anything "kawaii" like,  Cat with a cherry on it's head.  I would use this little thing as a pin cushion.  I don't know if my partner will or not.  Everything but the 'stem' is made from wool roving.  The stem was made with a scrap of wool yarn.

heart butt:

Knitting goal for 2011: knit 500,000 stitches.  24,078/500,000 knit.  I think I'm going to need more yarn...
