Felting with friends | 69 of 90

Last night my friends came over for dinner and felting!

It was so nice to catch up with Casey, Sam, and Kina! We talked all sorts of crazy things as we needled our wool (like cults, murders, history, the royals, the past, the future, kids these days…etc.) but found ourselves mostly sounding like old people who didn’t understand technology – hahahaha. Mainly…WHY IS TIKTOK ENTERTAINING WHYYYY.

This took a few hours to make, but it was sooooo satisfying once we sculpted our creatures! We all poked ourselves a few times and yes blood was shed!!

The prompt was to make magical turtles as directed by Kina, our veteran felter. But in the end, only Kina and I stuck to the plan, and Casey ended up making a bee with Kylie Jenner lips and Sam made a literal professional grade replica of his cat Alfie.

Closeup. How pretty are our creatures!!??

    Love the paper bag shorts! They are so cute, comfy, and feminine! Wish it was shorts weather over here, though. It was 39* in PA when I went on my walk this morning.

    I didn’t know felting was a thing, but everyone’s creations are SO cute!
