Nice!!! Looks like you're having fun with these!!!  Cheesy Cheesy Love the long tail and mane!!!  Cheesy Cheesy

The "mad" look may be the result of the eyes facing forward - horse's eyes are set high and wide and mostly facing out towards the side.

Oh!! Thanks!!!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

While I haven't seen any birds move into the one I have hanging in a tree near the office, I have continued to check it after the very (VERY) heavy rains we had. We had a few days in a row in which is only seemed to be raining and raining hard at that. The bird house is still fine and I am now convinced that they would actually be a suitable home for a bird!

Will be doing some yard work this weekend so I think I will take that time to also find permanent homes for the other birdhouses which I haven't hung. I would really like to put one under the eaves somewhere, but I'm not sure I will manage that. =^..^=

Not your normal nuno felting!
I didn't have any silk or cotton gauze with which to experiment. I did have some cotton calico so I decided to try it out on that. It worked really nicely and the result was a great padded fabric which is perfect for eyeglass cases - would also be great for smart phones and small cameras!

THANK YOU!!!  Cheesy Cheesy

We just had a really HARD rain here so after it finally finished I went out and checked my birdhouse. It was damp, but not soaked and it was holding its shape beautifully!!!  Cheesy Cheesy =^..^=

Thanks!!!  Cheesy Cheesy

I used a thin foam packaging sheet for the resist (the type that you wrap dishes in). It pliable enough that it is easy to remove once the hole is cut.

Wool tends to shed water and the shape of these birdhouses is such that it should encourage rain to just run off. We had some rain yesterday and the one I have hanging in the tree near the office stayed dry. I do expect that eventually it will get wet enough to start absorbing the water - I'll see what happens, but I expect it will hold up. I'd be more concerned about what sort living conditions that would be for birds inside - probably better than an open nest! lol!!!

I think hanging these under the eaves of a house or some similarly sheltered area would be the best. That would also protect them from squirrels that might decide the fiber would be really great in their own nests!!

Continuing to teach myself wet felting so did some resist felting and made these birdhouses! Pretty neat project all in all. I do have one hung out in the garden and it is holding up to the weather pretty well. Haven't hung up the other examples that I made as I think they would probably be best hung under the eaves and that would require the ladder etc. etc.

Thank you!!!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy =^..^=

One of my friends thought the mice versions would look like having a mouse trap around her neck!  Wink
The monkey could probably use some vines with leaves for the necklace rather than the simple beads and trapeze.
