Felting experiments

Earlier this month I was at the North Carolina Quilt Symposium in Charlotte, and bought a Pfaff Smart needle felting machine. I had to try it out when I got home, and made this little pin.
I started with a base of acrylic felt, then scrunched up some sheer ribbon around the edge and ran the machine over it as I went. Then I added some fibers and roving in the center, broke a needle and learned how to change it, and ended up with this! Some glitter glue for sparkle, and a pin back. My Mom has already claimed it. Very much fun, will enjoy trying more projects with it.
