Felting Fun and my first gnome!

Some serious crafting took place at my house over the weekend. The kids and I tried our hand at felt ball making..may I say not quite as easy at it looks but still lots of fun. Ours are a little less dense than they probably should be but then they were wound by little hands. Toby lost interest after a while and amused himself greatly with hitting the play equipment with a metal pole he found lying about. Miya was in soapy, crafting heaven and is well pleased with her efforts.

After we had cleaned up I had a try at creating my first needle felted gnome. I found this fabulous tutorial and here is the result. I only stabbed myself once! He's a bit fuzzy still but I think it adds to his charm :)
