Silly little cat – needle felting

I recently started needle felting again after being inspired by some friends. I was sorting through my craft stuff and found my needles, then some Styrofoam balls. I decided I wanted to play around and this is what I made.

The fiber is 100% alpaca that was given to me by a friend. It is super soft. Lots of flyaways as I’m still figuring things out and don’t want to over felt. I can’t do anything realistic right now, but I was playing around anyway.

The cat stands 6 inches hit to the tip of the ears. It took me six hours to make!

Baby blanket

I just spent most of the afternoon making a blanket for a co-workers new born baby. When I picked out the fabric, they did not know what the gender was going to be, but the baby was born today and it’s a girl. This was my first time making a blanket and so also my first time using blanket binding. It is not perfect, but I worked very hard on this and hope that she and the baby like it!

There is bad lighting in my room. The yellow is a soft yellow and the green is a soft mint green, really pretty. The color of the bears face is the same fleece I used for the back. There are cute bears, cats and clowns on the fabric.
