A lunares

A lunares
Originally uploaded by Marian Florcita

Well, spring didn't last that long. We are back to rain, cold and the ussual weather suspects... So, that also mean, back indoors.

I made this little mouse (or my own version of a mouse) a few weeks ago. It's all wool, no filling. I needle felted some stuff first (like the dots) and then wet felted it to make it a bit more solid. I used the needles for needle felting to stab around and in that way attach the ears and legs (although there is some stitching here and there to make it stronger).
She is sitting on out bookscase next to the botanics/craft books. Far away from my son who was throwing her aroundwith no mercy. I feared for her touching! :)

Im off to the drift shop to see if i can find a large pot where I could dye stuff. Amazing how expensive kitchen stuff is, uh?

Have a nice weekend!

What a cutie! I can see you've become quite a fan of orange! Wonder if living in Holland has got something to do with that... :)
Concerning the slippers: Tara from Mamachee really helped me very well how to crochet. I did it as a child and never since. She has beautiful baby booty patterns in her shop too - might be easier as I tweaked this pattern a little bit. But then I made perhaps 8 pairs of these so I got the hang of it. If you need help, just ask, I'm not a pro yet but I will try if I can! :)
