Felted Wool Slug

I think I mentioned I've been in a sewing mood lately....but to be honest I'm in a crafting mood...I think maybe that's my great escape...When things get tough I get creative...It keeps my mind from hyper focusing on things I can do nothing about.  

My goal is to see how many things I can get out of a Mossy Green Wool Sweater that I felted....
and so far this little guy is my Favorite!

I started him on Super Bowl Sunday while my family was all up in the Bonus Room watching the big game.

Using my chalk pencil I drew his shape on a fold in the sweater...cut it out and opened it when your cutting paper hearts.  I Needle felted the stems and the leaves and then sewed the button "flowers" on.

I planed on stuffing him with dried beans but there were none in the house to I opted for rice and of course some Lavender.

I love the way he turned out and would defiantly use the rice again!

Although when I made this little guy I thought of him as a Slug...He makes a great book worm too!  :)

I will be linking up to the many parties on my side check the out, they are full of wonderful ideas!
Thanks for visiting!
