I am in the World of Warcraft swap and my wonderful partner had sent me a starter kit for needle felting in a previous swap. I decided to jump in with both feet and give it a whirl. I only had one #40 fine needle and a handful of fluff and more spare time than should be allowed. I hope you like my little creation, he's the first attempt with many more to come. There is no skeleton or framework inside him at all, but the felting was done so tight that he is self supported and articulated with no fear of coming apart. The spines in his back have small pieces of wire in them just to keep them rigid, but offer no structural support to the main body at all.
I sent him to my good friend Curiousfae (who is also the person that sent me the felting goodies). She loved him and I thank her for showing me yet another form of art that I can spend my time creating!
