Here's my most recent needle-felted creation, Jedediah the Owl:

He's TINY - less than two inches tall! I think I'll definitely have to make some more needle-felted birds, because I'm so happy with how little Jed turned out. Next up, I'm planning to felt a bluebird. I think a little felted bird would look really nifty swinging from my car's rearview mirror.

I'm also playing around with the idea of using needle-felted miniatures as air fresheners. I'm not sure how well this will work, so I'll have to experiment. My plan is to use the scents that I have for soapmaking, and just add some to the felted miniature. I'm not sure who well or how long the wool will hold the scent, though, so that's where the experimentation comes in.

I found a tutorial on making the most adorable little pincushions here the other day, and had to make some immediately! Here's my favorite so far:

Isn't it adorable?

Leah, who created the tutorial, was nice enough to give me permission to re-sell these, so I'm going to be making many more. Right now there are three up in my Etsy shop.

These are SO easy to make, that even if you suck at sewing [raises hand] you can still make one in under an hour.
