Crafty Monday: Needle Felting!

This is the post that was meant for last Monday. When Friday rolled around and I still hadn't posted it, I decided I might as well wait until it was actually the right day. I'm always eager to try a new craft (see: Finding My Banjo), and when I found out that both my sister Laci and my mom wanted to try needle felting, I started looking more closely at the kits I'd been eying for a while. I got a magical mushroom kit from fancytiger and we started needle felting!

Needle felting is not at all what I thought it would be like, but I think it is really interesting. It's been almost two weeks and I still haven't picked it up again (I'm working on another neat project at the moment), but I definitely do see more needle felting in my future! My mom also wrote a blog post about it, which you can see here.

This was such a fun project! I sure am glad we didn't try the octopus for our first one!
