I was given a needle felting kit for Christmas. This is my first ever attempt  -< I'm quite pleased with the result and will definitely have another go  :)
P.S. it's a seal pup in case you don't recognise it  :D

He's gorgeous - and such a sweet face!  I have a needle felting kit, but I haven't done anything worth showing with it.  I must have another go sometime.
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

What an endearing expression, he's quite a handsome character!  :)
I nurse unloved vintage Berninas back to health and then just cannot bring myself to part with any of them... 807, 830, 840, 530-2, 930, 910, and a modded 717 in a Singer treadle base.

He's really sweet Low.  I haven't got a clue how you do needle felting, I must look it up.

Sweet little thing.

I've never done needle felting. Wouldn't have a clue where to start.

I love that seal Low, very cute.

Is needle felting where you stab the fabric repeatedly with a needle?

Could be very good for frustration or voodoo!

that's lovely Low .. He / She is really sweet....Needle felting is on my to do list ... ingredients are in the stash already.. perhaps I better find them to do in my upcoming enforced 'rest'

You start with strands of merino wool Ella. You put it on a foam pad and stab it repeatedly with a barbed needle ( ouch! ) You mould and shape it as you go.
It would be just the thing for you Veggie post op... it's easy, addictive and gets rid of frustration. :D
I have to be especially careful as I take anti coagulants and poor seal pup could have ended up looking like he'd been in a cull  :D

Lowena what a very cute result  :). I've never tried needle felting but I like the idea of frustration busting with creative results.
