I don't think I posted this here after December's challenge was over, so here's my little snowman.  I received a very cool needlefelting kit in the Stocking 7 Swap.  I had never tried needlefelting before, and I was a bit hesitant at first.  After all, you take a barbed needle and stab it into a very thin material.  How would I not injure myself?

Well, apparently I didn't have enough faith in myself.  After reading the directions on the website of the store that sold the kit (wildethymeart.com) and looking at Craftster's basic directions (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=51271.0) I got to work.  Of course, I couldn't do exactly what the directions for the kit said.  I had to improvise.




And a side view, so you can see the 3-Dness of his little nose.



I've got some more wool left over and I might try my hand at another or use it for something else.  This little guy was a gift for my mom for Christmas.  I've recently purchased a set of small cookie cutters that I might use as templates to make some flat, needlefelted ornaments.  Yes, I know it's only January, but getting a start on Christmas gifts is never a bad idea!
