Packing for a new place often brings to your attention long forgotten projects. More than a few years ago I bought a Woolbuddy kit as a way to learn needle felting. Ever since it’s been sitting in a closet alongside other neglected, but well-intended, projects.
With all my other projects on hold until the move is complete, I finally paid this little fella attention. The kit had easy-to-follow instructions making it easy, and enjoyable, to complete Stanley the Frog in a little under an hour while simultaneously binging on documentaries. The only snag I hit was breaking both felting needles that came with the kit. Fortunately, I had purchased another felting needle separately for yet another forgotten felting project—even more fortuitous that I hadn’t already packed it!
Since I bought the kit, they’ve come out with a book, Woolbuddies: 20 Irresistibly Simple Needle Felting Projects, as well as several other fun critters including a sea turtle, elephant, and anglerfish.
What project or kit could you fish out from the depths of your closet or garage?
