Felted wool sea turtle

While out shopping for everyone on my list a couple of weeks ago, I inevitably ended up buying something for myself. I’ve always wanted to try felting wool, and when I found these little woolpets kits at Urban Craft Uprising, I knew I had to get one.

To be perfectly honest, I still don’t know how it works. It’s like magic. I just finished making this sea turtle, and have no idea how it all came together. And I ended up sewing the mouth on with thread because I couldn’t figure out how to use wool to make it. But the good news is that this kit comes with enough wool to make 2-4 sea turtles, so I can give it a whirl again. The kit comes with everything you’ll need, except I did have to buy a beading needle since the eyes of all my sewing needles were too wide to fit through the beads.

Being a beginner and all, I specifically went for an ‘easy’ kit. I already want to make something else and have my eye on the penguin, sea otter and hedgehog, which are also ‘easy’ kits. So cute, right? I think they would make the most adorable Christmas ornaments.
