Needle Felting is Fantastic!

I learned a new trick! I learned a new trick! It's an old trick for many of you, but it's new to me and I really like it! I made these awesome mittens from Betz White's book Warm Fuzzies that I've been raving about. Well, to be honest I opened the page in the book, realized I did not have a photocopier on hand to enlarge the pattern and eyeballed it from there. They don't fit perfectly, but they're pretty darn good for an eyeball job. It only took about 1/2 hour, needle felting and all! Now I feel like I'm going to have a new obsession. Which is good, I guess!

Here's some awesome stuff I found on Etsy that is also needle felted. This is so cool! How come I didn't try it sooner!?

Those are sharp looking. Hopefully you won't need them for much longer though.
