need to reply a bit,

to ptarmic wumpus- thank you Smiley, i used white yarn for  the white outlines. but for the rest of the outlines i just twisted my roving and needle felted it (*needle a bit, twist and needle some more.. until i went all around. easy to add the roving as one goes along, incase origianlly didnt pull enough). my yarn was too thin and difficult and timeconsuming to needle felt. thats why i did it roving way..

to Aliped, thankyou too Smiley,
I need to get back to you on that, as I am not sure. I used brown, green, orange, and i think even red roving. so I dont remember what size bat I went through, as it was from many different bats of different sizes.
 BUT I will go and weigh it, and hope that will be ok?

Just surfing around etsy, it seems like there are a lot of smaller and less intricate felt wall art pieces prices around $30-50.  This one is awesome, I would say $80, at least!
