I made a head and a body last night before trying to needle felt my own finger! I'll have to be careful now my own blood is on the voodoo doll Laughing

I'll take piccies later.

Here's a couple of sites I found. I got my needles and holder from a shop in Manchester. The holder will hold up to 4 needles. I just use one needle on small things and all 4 on a bigger piece. I have a foam block but I recommend putting that on a tray or something rather than straight on your lap as the needles can still go through!!!

Thanks, Very Happy
He's not as cute as the original, his feet are a bit Frankenstein's monsterish, and it's not as easy as it looks.

I used the grey wool left over from the had I made for Mrs Rhomboid. It might have been better using roving instead. I will be having another go

After attempting the Voodoo doll pincushion (see that thread for pics!!!) I was wondering what I could do and I'm now attempting a dragon.

I haven't got a pattern, I'm just making it up as I go along. Head and body done last night.

Oh Ang,that is cracking - and in a signature colour I see Very Happy

Went looking for a felting needle today - my local craft store didn't have any so will have to wait until I can drive up the valley and visit the much hated Walmart - they have a huge craft section and I'm sure the Martha Stewart crap they sell will feature felting supplies..

Our cats usually appropriate any Amigurami that I crochet - the house is littered with corpses of crochet bunnies..
