While at the One of a Kind Show in Toronto, my kiddo spied some needle-felted mounts by FeltFactory.com. He was awed. Finally a craft that I can do AND he likes! And so, after a rotten day I managed a rather nice needle-felted squirrel head mount for my cheeky boy for Christmas.



My kid is rather obsessed with hunting squirrels. Thank the heavens those little buggers are fast and he can't hit moving targets with his bb gun.

Now this is the kind of head mount that I would be willing to put up on my wall. I can't stop giggling at the expression. He looks like, "Wait . . . what just happened?"  I love it!

Even the mounting is awesome. Is that felted over wood or something? And what size is this? It is so amazing.
