I have four to try – Turtle, Frog, Sea Otter and Penguin. For this first try, I decided to do the Penguin.
Here he is:
He turned out a bit taller and skinnier than I was aiming for, but not bad for my first try. My kids, especially my youngest, were fascinated by this process of bits of wool being poked into shapes.
Since doing Mr. Pengu up there, I have also needle felted a golf-ball sized toy ball for my cat, and a tennis-sized one for my boys (indoor only). I was surprised at how much wool and how much time it took to make a ball of a decent size.
I’m thinking of doing the Turtle next….
