Needle felting for the win

My new favorite thing to do is stab a barbed needle into a wad of polyester stuffing and felt until I get something like this!

This little head (based on Danielle's cat Hazel) is a tightly packed ball of polyester fibers made by pushing a needle with tiny notches into it repeatedly. I have to say it is that strangest way to sculpt something I have ever tried. Rather tiring, but strangely fun, I expect I shall be doing much more of it in the future.
