Felting, jabbing, bleeding
After the little, felted bunny for my sister
I knew I just had to try a mouse
Since it was now my second felted project
I thought I might have fewer finger jabs
and I would say for the most part
that was true during the 'Mouse Adventure'
She has such personality
and I am quite fond of her, really.
So I am quite happy she is going off
to a lovely and welcoming home...
and will have a name and a story all her own
She did have one encounter
during the photography session
A felted hamster...
(an Etsy find from a few years ago)
had to come and check her out.
So once little Miss Mouse was done
I was reluctant to put my felting supplies away
and while watching T.V. last night
I pulled out a bit of wool.
Keep in mind that on the couch with me
was the very energetic Miss Luna Bella
who wanted nothing more than a mouthfull
Several times she gleefully grabbed a wad
and ran to the corner of the couch
and I would have to wrestle it away from her.
Clearly she thought she hit 'pay dirt'
without having to rip a toy apart!!!!
Between the wool retrieving
and the glances up at the T.V.
(NOT something I recommend while felting)
....the jabbing and bleeding began
because I was determined to make a teensy bear..
a toy for a doll.
The almost finished product
with a few guides for size reference
and the torture tool of choice
the deadly felting needle!!!
