Needle Felted Hummingbird

My fourth needle felting thins ever. My first was the bunny, then two border collies and guess what this is. A hummingbird. I am definitely improving on needle felting and I can’t decide what I should felt next. But first I have to finish Christmas gifts. Christmas is just so close; it is only one week from now. Here are the images and some of the process that went into it.

Needle Felted Border Collie

This Saturday (7/15/17) I am going to go to Michigan. It is about a two day trip from here to there. We are visiting my Dad’s parents. I don’t remember the last time I saw them, I was probably about two years old. They have a farm with sheep and border collies and maybe some other animals. On Christmas 2016, they were the ones who gave me needle felting supplies. So, before I visit them I decided to needle felt them a border collie. This is my second needle felted item and has come a long way from my starting bunny.


Tug-Of-War Dog Toy

This is a very simple dog toy. You can easily make it longer (which I recommend mine is fit for a small dog), or wider. The Tug-Of-War Dog Toy is great for people who are learning to crochet and want to make a toy for their dog. I’m sure your dog will love it!

Feathered Fish Crocheted Cat Toy

Leave a comment

This is my cat who loves to play with pretty much everything. When I crocheted this fish he loved it and I hope your cats will be just as thrilled as my cat is about this free, crocheted, cat toy. Enjoy the pattern 🙂  This pattern can not be sold nor the amigurumi be sold but you are allowed to give these as presents.
