Needle Felting

One of the crafts I'm really big on is needle felting. I have so much fun sculpting some of my favourite characters in wool! A lot of my friends and family love them too, so I make them for gifts quite a bit - unfortunately, I tend to give them as soon as they're finished, and forget to take pictures (Pity, because I was fond of both Jack Skellington and the Cheshire Cat). Others just didn't photograph well before going off. I'm working on a few tutorials related to how I create some of my felted friends, but for now, here are a few I've made in the past year and a half (click on the image to go to the deviantArt page):

Stitch, from "Lilo and Stitch", was a special present for my friend Amy :)

Dory was a present for myself xD I love the character, and it was interesting working with such a thin character - sculpting her face to how I wanted it got me a lot of finger pricks!

Piglet was a special present for my sister. I'm hoping to have an entire Hundred Acre Woods set eventually; Pooh and Tigger are both in the works.
