Felted Nook Cover with Needlefelting

A friend in Arizona asked me how I liked my Nook reader.  She suggested making a felted cover for it. So… I go in another direction! I felted the piece of knitted wool. I used Paton’s wool and it takes about 3 ounces. I knitted 50 stitches and 120 rows on the Brother Bulky. The length is used as my width-that’s the nice thing about felting.  Then I needlefelted a mouse reading a book on the front. Don’t know how I will finish this yet but I am thinking. I may knit a piece of fabric on the passap with finer wool as I think this would be too thick doubled. Or I could use fabric. You will have to wait and see what I do. :)By the way, my sister used to call me Mouse when we were growing up. It certainly fits doesn’t it? I am sure she will get a good laugh out of this. I also think that double bed fabric on the passap machine would be ideal. Hmmm? Might try that.
