Earlier this year I learned how to needle felt, and it was so much fun – and a lot easier than I expected! So I was super excited when Kelly from Romney Ridge Yarns & Wool asked if I’d like to try out one of their needle felting kits and do a giveaway here on Moogly – and I promptly fell even more in love with needle felting than before!

Introducing the Everlasting Crochet Terrarium!
