Needle Felting Fun

My latest crafting endeavor-needle felting.

A few years ago I took an art class on felting. 
I tried wet felting, but didn't enjoy the feel of the wet wool. 
Then, I tried my hand at using a sharp needle to poke the fiber into shape. 
I made a few little creatures, but got frustrated when I poked my fingers too many times with those very sharp needles. 
Ouch! I gave away the tools and thought I'd never try needle felting again.


Fast forward several years. 

Something tugged at me to try the craft again. 
I started searching online for tools and tips. 
Yep-more tools. 
One of them removed all doubt of pursuing this fun art. 
I found leather finger covers!
 Perfect. 
Just what I needed to make poking the wool less detrimental to my fingers.

Let's take a peek at what I've made so far...

I had to make a sheep. 
Since those precious animals provide the wool roving. 
I'm pleased with the results.
