Step 4: Attach Earbuds

Place earbud on top of flower center.

Take a short length of fleece in a color to match the center. Roll it between your hands to make a short snake.

With your felting needle, and being careful not to stab the earbud cable, attach the fleece snake to the flower center on one side of the earbud base. Attach the fleece to the other side. Run a little bit of the fleece around the top of the earbud, so that the flower will not slide down the cable while you are wearing it. Tuck in any ends and secure them with the felting needle.

Repeat steps 2 - 4 for second earbud.
Pretty sweet! I love needle felting. That is a really cute idea. I can't believe an 8 year old did that. I feel like my work is not as impressive any more. Awesome!
That is AWESOME!!!! I want them RIGHT NOW!!!!! :-) I could see these done in felt also. An 8yr old that is not only up to date with current fashion trends, but apparently is also setting them, in areas involving audio feedback devices. You do realise that has not been done before, at all. That is very remarkable. Make sure you do the I'ble thing again if she has anything else to share, these are great!! I took the liberty of adding them to the Craftzine.com group as you will get more views and or coverage. They should also appear on craftzine.com currents projects within the hour. Oh I subscribed as well, I am not missing anything else she has to share...!! Well done!! I would like to also thank you for facilitating your daughters I'ble. I think more people should follow your example and display their childrens hard work.
thats true I was raised doing arts and crafts and this didn't even occur to me
Those are nice! I'll avoid the flowers and go with something else though.
I wanna make GIANT EARS-earbuds .. the flowers are nice though.
innovative idea, tho i think a little too bulky
Aww. cute kid, smart too. She'll probably be a great designer when she's older.
Adorable ! What a kid ! Can't wait to see what she makes when she's grown !!! Have a feeling she's gonna be famous ! She could NOT be cuter, either !
This is so cool! We might have to make some in our house too!
