Finn Likes Felting
I’m trying out different ways of needle-felting, and I created a small, brown blob. Turns out Finn likes felting.
Or At Least Finn Likes Felting When I Do It!
The little brown blob looked kind of like one of his toy mice. But honestly, I didn’t hold out much hope that he’d like it.
For an old cat, he sure did go after that “mouse” toy. Glad that roving didn’t go to waste. And I didn’t even roll that little blob in catnip or anything.
Clearly Finn has good taste in fiber-objects.
It’s a beautiful yarn and lovely to work with. I just ordered something that will go with some of these shawls for when they get gifted and/or donated.
I also finished the workshop bear that I’ll teach in May.
The second photo is just to show how petit this little guy is. I opted not to needle-felt the nose and eyes and just use safety/plastic eyes and nose. I had to felt over the studs on the back side of the bear with a little more fiber. But it was worth it.

I’m honestly just learning this particular craft myself. Enough so that I can teach it to 10 guys in May. And there are TONS of really good tutorials out on YouTube to learn this technique.
