I am soooo happy with how this turned out, considering I have never needle felted before! I am a fan of it now....so nice to stab and stab at wool....actually quite meditative and stress busting. I didn't want to do the body in silver because I just had a feeling the 'precious' factor would be upped by using something soft and natural looking.
Future attempts will use mohair or merino wool, with perhaps some silk for sheen. We'll see. This roving just came from my local craft store, but boy am I pleased with it.
And, remember, I don't do eyes:)
I'll work on vignette placement and post something in the near future.
