felt flower

i was watching the science of sleep and became immensely inspired by all of the felt toys that were in the movie. it didn't dawn on me that somebody actually made them (that somebody is lauri faggioni).

first, i went on youtube (anutha new addiction) and searched for videos on needle felting. after looking at a couple, i figured it looked easy, so why not try it? so i then searched on etsy(yet anutha addiction) for needle felting kits. i ended up buying one from burtonwood. everything i needed came in a sturdy plastic storage bin (and i've got enough roving to keep me busy for a while). within 10 minutes of opening the kit, i was needle felting.

the flower is my first project.
