Strawberry Shortcake

I really love Etsy. Etsy has this wonderful thing called Alchemy that you can request handmade items and list the price, then see if anybody will do it. Well, a lady with the shop In Hope listed up that they wanted 8 felted strawberries to add to her handspun yarn. So, I put in a bid and was accepted. I'm pretty happy over the results:

I love needle felting and this was a chance for me to experiment a little. I used some merino/silk that I bought awhile ago on ebay. I then hand-dyed it. It is the perfect color for strawberries being a mix of red, pink, and purple. I used it mainly because it irritates me to spin because it is lumpy. It felt up really nicely and I think that the person will really like it.
