Ever since I discovered Etsy and Pinterest I have been seeing the most amazing needle felt creations. Life like miniature animals, fantastic dolls and so much more. It was all so beautiful that I wanted to see what I could do. http://pinterest.com/Deeliciousdee/needle-felting/
This weekend, having collected all the things I needed, I decided to take the plunge. I did a quick bit of Internet research and immediately found I had the wrong sort of felting needle. I also found all sorts of tips, help and tutorials.
I meant to try and make a penguin as it looked fairly simple. Not surprisingly it was not that easy.
I rolled my first shape and started work .... I love my creation and am really quite proud of it although I am not sure what it is exactly.

Still a lot more practice needed.
A trip to the shops to get some other needles - it should be easier to do the finer detailing.
|not quite sure what this little creature is|
This looks like a very good tutorial - so trying to make a bear could be the next project.
Although my creation did not end up quite as I had intended I liked needle felting so much that I am really glad that I decided to give needle felting a go.

I found these little creatures when I was searching for information on how to needle felt.
