Okay, Here is my second try at needle felting.I am starting to get the hang of it and it is fun. Only stabbed my finger one time. I bought a six pack of needles from the slimchicken web site http://www.etsy.com/shop/slimchicken?ref=seller_info and it really paid off. There are different sizes for doing different things. I also sent her (Jodi) a picture and asked her to send the colors of merino wool roving that she sees in the picture so I would have all to choose from for the project. She even sent me small amounts of a mohair and another sample that has real shine to it called Firestar.It looked funny to me to have the bird on only one slipper and the other plain so I added a little. This came out larger than I wanted it to but how do you get all the colors in on a smaller bird? lol These will be for sale in my Etsy Store.
