I have long been admiring felt wool animals. I've had my favorite shops on Etsy that I have been frequenting and every once in a while I would treat myself to one of the little cuties. The idea that I could be making them myself hardly crossed my mind. It seemed like "one of those things", that are very hard to do, and there is no way I can be doing it. Like making soup (several years ago), or baking a cake (still), or brewing tea out of rose hips (my grandmother used to do that when I was little).
To make the long story short, one of my New Year resolutions was to try to learn to felt (and brew the rose hips). And I have done it:) I bought the wool, and the needles and a very cute Japanese design book and started. The Japanese book which looked very cute at first proved to be of little help, since I could not read it. And the pictures do give you ideas, but it is still hard to implement those. Youtube proved to be extremely helpful. Plus I have talked to a few people who were doing it and they were very helpful.
So , here are the ones I am not embarrassed to show) Two of them are already looking for new owners on Etsy.
