Funky Felted Fish.....

Well, its official, needlefelting is fun. lOl!! i havent done much of it before,only to use it for dolls hair!
Its so nice to sit and jab away and see what unfolds! Made these two fish atc's today, not that they started as fish, just sort of evolved that way!
I added some angelina which probably doesnt show in the photo but gives them a wonderful sparkle and lift. To felt the angelina, i laid a very light layer of wool over the top and felted it in so it peeps thru.
I have been wanting to try this wonderful craft for ages and working atc size i get can them done quickly. I like the simple overcast stitch too rather than blanketstitching.
I have always loved working with felt, its such a lovely medium.
