A sweet little "Baby Sleeping" pillow created for a friend's new grandson -- all fulled wool in delicate shades with hand-stitched applique. You can barely see the stitching over the curve at the top of the duck.

I needed another baby gift so, of course, felting came to mind and I wanted to try something new. This wall plaque began with a piece of heavy prefelt and some Felbi animal cutouts. I needle felted these onto the background using my Embellisher, added some green Felbi (lightweight prefelt) for the hills and grass then did a little free motion stitching before wet felting. Viola! Here come "The Wild Things" tramping over hill and vale to say "Hello" to the new little one; it is a really lovely hard and pebbly felt. The hanger was made by felting wool around a wire covered with floral tape to help it adhere and then bent into shape.

Finished plaque (I know the Giraffe's legs aren't perfect but he's having fun anyway, so who cares!)
