This is my second needle felting project and I'm thrilled to bits with it.



The eyes are black seed beads, and the whiskers are strands of fur. As for the wool... well, this past summer I got two bags of stinky raw wool from a local farmer. It was filthy and took ages to wash and brush and get it anywhere near usable... but it was free so I'm not complaining. Anywho, I tea dyed some of that wool and used it for this project. I'm really proud that I did everything but sheer the lamb myself Smiley but next time around I'm buying the wool  Tongue

SQUEE! So kee-yoot! How big/small is he/she?
I just happen to have brought wool and needles home the other day to mend a pair of mittens, I should try to felt something fun. Last time I poked my fingers one too many times though, yowch!

He's around 2.5" tall.

My fingers narrowly escaped poking many, many times Smiley

My plan is to make a rather large happy moon shrine and include him in that.

Your little mouse is adorable! I'd love to see many, many little mice in different positions! Maybe a trio of 3 blind mice! Just think, little sunglasses! Cheesy
