New Hobby : Needle Felting

About a year ago I discovered this awesome art called Felting or Needle Felting. You have these special needles that are covered in little barbs and then you take loose wool roving and stab it with the needle, the barbs pull the tiny threads together and eventually build your felt into whatever shape you want! Its like sculpting but with fabric! Here is my latest piece I did. It was the cake topper for our wedding <3
I think all you Ghibli fans might recognize the inspiration :)
I also did a much larger piece for last years Lighting Dept art show. I'll be sure to get a picture up of that soon :)
