A smiling puffin after his lunch...

This delightul brooch would look great pinned onto your jacket, coat, sweater, bag, hat, etc.

This brooch measures 3.5 inches long and 1.5 inches high plus .75 inches wide.

I have needle felted this brooch using all different colours of wool. This brooch began as a piece of wool fluff*. I use one sharp needle to poke the fluff until it becomes a ball shape. Then I sculpt the ball into the shape you see above using the needle. I choose my colourful fluff (some of which I buy from UK sellers), I mix/card the colours together till I get the right shade, then I apply them to the sculpted shape using a thinner needle. All of the design has been needle felted.

*The wool fluff starts off on a sheep that lives in the field behind my house (belonging to the farmer that lives in my village). Every spring he has his sheep sheared and then he drops off 2 fleeces to me. I wash the fleece lots and lots of times and remove most of the hay and all of the dirty stuff from the fleece. Once it is dry I use it to needle felt.
