Later, I went to The Urban Craft Center in Santa Monica to take a needlefelting class. Needlefelting involves poking at dyed, un-spun wool called "roving" with a sharp, barbed needle. First we learned to make a little mouse:
And then we could make whatever our hearts desired. With my bird fetish, of course I made this little friend:
It was so easy to learn, so quick, and so satisfying! Each of these took about 45mins to make. I bought some needlefelting supplies so expect to see more little woolly creations in the future :)
After I got home from the class (and photographed my new little friends), I listed these three necklaces on Etsy: A wise owl, yellow birds, and a Boston Terrier.
Hope you had a great Saturday too!
