A boy and his felties...

This is my boy, Rafael.

These days, you can often see him here.... It's prime pickin' time.

The past few days have been at the table needle felting.
 He's just gone a little crazy for it. The sock monkey on the left is the first one that I did a few years ago. Check it out here. The cube monkey at the bottom is one he did yesterday and the large monkey on the right is felted soap. I had a request for it at the market on Saturday. 

 Yes, oh yes, I had a lovely time at the Farmer's Market on Saturday. I'll be going there again to set up a table. Pleasant way to spend the morning.

 He's in a bit of a sock monkey mode.
See the one on the bottom, it's a heart shaped monkey. His idea.
He's also in a Mario Brother's mode.
All photos, except the ones of himself, are Rafael's. See his shadow?
Since these pictures this morning, he has done a few lady bugs, another Mario creature and a few other things. I'm just leaving out on the table for a few more days to see what comes out of his hands and head. I do need to buy more needles though. Ugh. 8 year old boys can be hard on needles.

If you've come from Late Night Stamper, thanks for joining me here. 

See you again soon.  A tutorial for a lavender wand...


  1. Your monkeys look great, Rafael! Well done!

  2. Wow you are creating a new crafting blogger as we watch. Rafael has a great future ahead of him with the fabulous needle felting AND the photography.

    It must be so rewarding to see him take an interest in the things that you love doing.
