Needle-felted robin and accordion

I've only done a little bit of needle-felting before, but I'm getting into it again now. A couple of days ago I made this robin, which is a gift for my dad:

I got the pattern from this book.

After that I made this little accordion! I'm madly in love with John Linnell, the accordion player from They Might Be Giants, and this is based on my favourite of his accordions.

It's not perfect--I didn't do a very good job making the keys and the bellows close enough together. But I think it came out pretty well, especially considering it's the first time I've ever made something without a pattern.

If you're curious about needle-felting but have never tried it, I first did it using a couple of the kits from this company. They have lots of ones to make supercute stuff, and the kits aren't very expensive so they're a good way to try it out and see if you like it.
