Felted the 2nd boot

I've finished felting the second boot. This doesn't mean I'm finished, it just means the hard part is over. Felting is actually a really quick craft! I think i spent so long on the first boot because I had such a horrible tool to work with. Now that I have the Winterwood felting needles, I blast through the project!

What I love about this technique is that every time you do it, it'll be different. So the two boots are supposed to be identical mirror images, but because they are hand done, each has it's own personality. They're quirky. The first boot has a more flowy tail on the fish, as this one is a bit more "swooped." Very interesting, and I love it!
