wet felting & cookies!

ok, so today we went a little crazy with the easter crafty goodness. maybe i was making up for our complete lack of st. patrick's day art. or more likely, easter/spring is just so much more fun.

anyway, we started the day with some wet felting, something i've wanted to try for a long time. inspired by this, we picked up supplies on wednesday and went for it! ours didn't really felt all that well, but it was so much fun, i'm sure we'll get the hang of it with some more practice. we have yet to make some little felted chickies to go inside, so for now, it's an easter penguin.

after working on something to look at and hold, we decided we better also make something to eat! sam didn't seem to mind eating his plain. the big boys didn't seem to mind eating up their frosting artwork.

  1. I SO wanted to make these eggs! Glad you did it! I DID however, make a felt chick. It's pretty much ripped apart now. The problem with the 'wool pets' is they are not 'hard wearing' (read: toddlers LOVE ripping them apart!...even gentle Lea). Oh well. This summer we'll work on felted balls and hopefully perfect the technique for next Easter! Looks like things are going swimmingly for Leif! I mean, he's already writing books! Look at what a kid can do while not in 'school'! :) Yahoo!
