I just finished Bluebell and listed her last night on eBay. She was really fun to do. Her wings were hand dyed with blue Kool-Aid. They turned a really lovely shade of blue. I was inspired by Chrissy P.(The Felted Chicken) from her blogpost last week. It was pretty awesome. I hard a hard time finding the blue. I finally found some on the shelf of the General store in Randsburg. I think it was about 5 years old. But who cares. I don't think Kool-Aid can go bad anyway. I bought their whole stock of 6. First, I needle felted them and I then boiled them in the Kool=Aid for about 15 minutes. It took 2 packs to get them this shade of blue.
