My needle felting experiment

So in an attempt to make a fuzzy version of my kitty, Sammy, I decided to try to needle felt onto one of my stuffed Kitties. Here is the frightening result. As far as the ability of the wool to latch itself onto the Kitty, that worked fabulously. But as far as me liking the final look... I'm not too sure yet. Maybe he'll grow on me. Idk.

Between this post and yesterday's I've concluded that I haven't had nearly enough sweets lately and I'm taking it out on my blog. Heh heh, oh well. These lovely felt delectables were created by Lisa Johnson of Lisajhoney. The little whipped cream poofs in the bowl of fruit and on the pancakes are so cute I can hardly stand it. Check out more of Lisa's felt creations in her etsy store. You can also find Lisa on her blog, facebook and twitter.

Ok, so this post is a little out of character for me because I don't usually post too much about food, but this cake (and photography) was so crazy gorgeous that I couldn't resist.

Check out the Wisk Kid blog here, and Kaitlin's deviantART site here. drool drool.
