Felted Mouse…or rat? I’m not sure.

I’ve seen needle felting a few times at different craft shows and have always thought it would be fun to try.  The $10 penguin starter kit from michael’s was great so I thought, why not try something a little more challenging.  I was inspired by sarafinafiberart.com  as she makes these beautiful lifelike animals and had a video tutorial on how to make a mouse (my favourite!)  Unfortunately, I didn’t have very mousy colours of wool to use and the face isn’t nearly as cute as the ones Sarah makes.  I avoided finishing it for a week because I was so worried it would turn out creepy !!  Overall though, I think it was a good first try.  I’m currently staying at a hotel so I wonder what the cleaning staff have thought during my process of making this mouse!  Eeek, it looked scary for a while!
