First ever attempt at needle felting

Months and months ago I bought a needle felting kit on esty as it seemed like such a simple craft with really cool results but I just didn't seem to find the time to complete the kit. But this weekend I FINALLY got to use the kit and I have to say needle felting is easier than I ever thought it would be - stabbing wool with a needle? It doesn't really get any easier than that.

Here's a couple pictures of the result - a very cute little penguin sitting on my craft table (well my sewing machine to be precise). I've now bought some more felting wool on trade me to create more felted creatures.

That is one cute penguin!
will have to put needle felting on my list of things to do. Can't wait to see what else you come up with!

Cute! I have some books with patterns in them and some different coloured roving if you want to have a needle felting get together :) I've broken all but one of my needles though so will need to source some more......
