The Art of Needle Felting

I have such admiration for the artists that utilize the technique of needle felting! It is MUCH harder than it looks - I've taken two classes. In the first class, we needle felted a teddy bear. Such a dismal failure, that I didn't even care that our kitten got a hold of the teddy and shredded it.
My second class was much better, I did a bunny that is for sale in my etsy shop.
HOWEVER, check out Cozy Cottage Creations! Now, here is somebody who has truly perfected the fine art of needle felting. Her work is fabulous! The details are astounding. somebody already bit into that apple!
I'm going to go have strawberries for breakfast!!

Oh your bunny is so cute! How many times did you stab yourself with the needle?
We needle felted Monday night at craft group and I think my finger looks like a pin cushion!
