Star-nosed mole ornament

My fourth original felt ornament design. I used inexpensive acrylic felt, needle-felted with a #40 triangular felting needle. I used fabric glue to adhere the needle-felted layers to a piece of inky blue felt to finish. I stitched details using 2-strands of embroidery thread.

I’ve been fascinated with Star-nosed Moles for awhile. Their 22 pink appendages contain more than 25,000 Eimer’s organs (sensory receptors), which allow it to hunt very effectively. The species holds the Guinness World Record for world’s fastest forager, deciding whether something is edible or not in only 8 milliseconds.
