Love the cat!  I'm taking a felting class this weekend.  Can I ask if it took you very long to get the hang of it? 

Thanks. Smiley It actually doesn't take long to learn at all, the basics are simplistic, the real learning is trial and error with how to shape things and add details, long hair, etc.. Needlefelting is nice because if you mess something up, you can pull it right out and try again. I would say you should catch on to it fast. My mom bought a book on it and taught herself, then taught me. I usually use a wire armature because it makes it easier for me.

It's mostly just very time intensive, I made this one of my longcoat chihuahua I lost a few months back and all together it probably took upwards of 15 hours.

Hello all!   Smiley   Glad to be back!

Your needlefelting is amazing!   Smiley   I have the tools but never have sat down to learn how to do it yet. 

And I would cry if something I worked on so long got chewed up.  Sad   I am sure Phizzy will give it a loving home!   Smiley

So many things in the shops that I want!   Cheesy    Need to get my shop put together first though.  Smiley

Okay. I don't have much time this month and December but in January I'll make custom offers for both kinds of slippers - if anyone needs a pair as a Christmas present I can do that, but nothing more than one pair I think Smiley

I'm off to have a quiet night of work on the school for things for the Christmas fair. It's soo stressful during the day. We are usually "only" 35 but these days we're over 50 and this just makes the workroom very noisy and hard to work in. So yay for evenings^^

I shows that I sent Velvet Rose a cluster bracelet, but I never offered that in my shop. I think it was probably from TheSapphireMoon?
