    <p>I wondered if anyone had tried needle felting?</p> <p> </p> <p>I found some kits today, with Llama or merino wool fibers (it looked very fluffy, soft individual fibers, not spun at all) and a barbed needle, with patterns to make animals.

    <p>Because we are really short on cash, I've been trying to reuse and recycle as much as possible for crafting. I made some tree Christmas ornaments with felt and used some beads I had from a broken necklace and a star shaped charm as the ornaments on the small trees. I just finished making 10...

    <p>When I was a kid, my mom made cinnamon scented ornaments with us. I asked her and she told me that it was a salt/flour dough recipe with a ton of cinnamon added in.

    <p>I want to make my boys a fishing pole to catch some fake fish (felt, probably). I have a 2 year old that is inventive and eats everything so I won't even bring a magnet into the house.
