Needle Felt - Baby Octoling

Here is my first attempt at needle felting. Needle felting was something I always wanted to try. Having 0 experience with this craft, I had always felt intimidated by the super sharp needles. Part of me felt like what's the point I could just sew something up or make it out of clay. However it's actually pretty cool! I found it to be quite relaxing methodically jabbing a needle into soft fluffy stuff that would suddenly take form the more jabs it got. Although I do want to say that I stabbed my fingers at least twice making this little guy! With that said it's still a nice way to make tiny little critters! It's like sculpting with wool. I'll plan to keep trying it out now since I have an abundance of roving wool to use!
