All of your comments were so encouraging, so I decided to give felting a go!
I figured why not make a felted Mickey. I pulled up some online directions by googling felting and used the Fuzzy Felt Friends book. Felting is tough! You just stab and stab the wool until you get the shape you want, but you MUST completely focus on the wool or you'll stab yourself for sure! This is a dangerous little hobby - I broke two needles! One flicked off onto the floor, I had to take a magnet and search for it, so no puppies or people would fine it. I found it thank goodness. Then the second one broke off inside the little felted Mickey! I wasn't 100% sure so I took a kitchen knife and cut him open lol I found it, but couldn't get it out. Even though he was cut in half I just stabbed the wool shut - pretty cool you can fix mistakes quickly!
So you continue to stab and stab. I made the legs, ears, and tail separate and just stabbed them into place. It is really tough and you must give it your full attention. There was a special on the History Channel about King Tut, which I've been wanting to watch, but couldn't because I didn't want to stick myself!
I used foam for floral arrangements - DO NOT do this! It turned the wool green. I found two unused sponges and they worked perfect! The needles are so delicate! After awhile I felt more confident shaping the wool, it took a total of 2 hours to finish this little guy!
I took the tiniest pieces of black wool to make his eyes and nose! You can stab the wool into any shape you want - this is pretty cool.
So here is my little felted Mickey - he was zero fun to make! But that's just my take on felting! You should still try it! The broken needles really annoyed me! I felt like I needed safety goggles for the flying needles! I stuck myself only twice surprisingly. Maybe I should have started with something easier than a dog. I will try it again, it didn't total beat me :)
So there you go! If anyone has ever made you a felted something - treasure it! All these ladies on etsy selling felted creatures must have the patience of saints!
