Wool Owl Parade

In the beginning of this year I talked about the firstborn owl, and now it’s autumn again and the rest of the gang feel safe to come out of the forest to show of their gray wool feathers… They’re all made out of felted sweaters, knitted in thick gray wool once upon a time. Hand […]

Needle felt a tiny teddy bear

I bought a needle felting kit at Ebay last year. There are 10 colors of wool, a couple of special needles and a foam-rubber-like cushion in my kit, and it was actually cheaper to get it from the US than trying to find it here in Sweden for that money! I’ve made a tiny heart […]
