Fuzznubin’

Here’s a fun little new guy. This was made by needle felting. It’s a very simple process. You take loose bits of fleece, lay it on something like a pillow or foam, and stab at it with a felting needle, which is rather large, barbed, and extremely sharp. You really just stab things into shape. How often can you say that?

  1. the word came up as lark and i watched “The Life of Mammals” series. occasionally, they’d show a really cute little animal, and i’d say, “ah, little fuzznubbin’ ”
    it’s quite a good word 🙂
