Needlefelting is a craft that can result in some fantastic 3D objects.  You use special barbed needles that sculpt wool fibers, basically by poking and poking them until they do your bidding (while stabbing yourself repeatedly).   I’m just learning myself, but have received some fantastic needlefelted items in craft swaps.  Here’s Bindi checking out her mini-me that we received from a Craftster named Mercedes, who also felted our tiny little Jenna.  I’ve felted a few sheep, but still haven’t gotten the hang of the wire armature inside of the figure.  Needlefelting a great take-along project.  I like to play with it during down time at the farmers’ market, and always have to explain to folks what the devil it is I’m doing stabbing wool in my lap.
