mice... mice... mice

Here is my newest mouse. I was working on him in Des Moines... sort of a demo. So many people were interested in how I felted my critters. I think there are a few who are going to go to Hobby Lobby and buy some needles and roving and give it a try. They may not find it as easy as they think. Getting the wool felted is easy... but "sculpting" in the form you want isn't.
I do like to have stuff with me at a show... I hate just sitting and waiting for customers. This way I am doing something... and that something is interesting enough to entice people walking by.

He turned out adorable!

Yeah, I often battle with Needle felting... yelling at it to form the way I want it to as I stab it again and again... it doesn't always work, but it gets the aggression out XD
