My first needlefelting project! I have to say, I am so proud of it<3 This is a mobile for my baby boy.



There are three mushrooms, a tree, a flower, bird, owl, inchworm, and bunny (my least favorite, I dont even think it looks like a bunny, but it seems to be everyone's favorite part :/ ) The wreath is woven young willow branches. I woved them, then tied them super tight with string so they wouldnt unravel or loosen (adjusting it as it starts to dry is important so you can make it tighter.)

Here's some detailed shots:
