Oops!  Sorry about that.

Eyeballs usually creep me out, but he is adorable.  Love his bunny costume.

Wow, wow, wow!!!  These are fantastic.  I just love them.  I wish I could wear something like this, but at my age, and with how thin my hair is, it just wouldn't look right.  But I can dream.  Do you have a website or shop you sell these from?

Thank you evryone.  I am pretty proud of Alfred. 
The two that won first and second were cute little animals.  First place was won by an online friend of mine and she did the most adorable tiger cub that was so very cute.  I was really surprised I took third with all the really cute animals people submitted.

Okay, here is another of my favorite felties I have done.  This is Alfred.  He is my first doll I did from Kay Petal's Felt Alive class, and the first in my Real Life series.  He also won third place in an International Needle Felting Contest.

It took forever to do his shirt and I was wishing I had just left it a solid color, but glad I didn't.

Thank you for your continued revues all. 
Wendy, I use wool roving and a felting needle.  I roll the roving into an egg shape, firm it down with the needle, then add small amounts of roving and shape them as I go along.
Shade of Shadow, he is totally needle felted. No wet felting.

Thank you so much everyone.  No, there is no armature.  I do my legs by adding a small bit of wool at a time, and shaping as I work my way down to the feet.  It takes for ever, but is nice and sturdy.

Thank you everyone.  Wow, you sure made my day.  I just posted this and to see all these replies already is awesome.

 This is a camel I did for a commission.  He is firmly felted without an armature, and stands just over 10" tall.  He even has the eyelashes.  I used hairs from my dog's tail for them.

What a fabulous idea and very clear instructions.  Thank you for sharing.  I have a drop spindle, and will hopefully be learning how to use it soon, so this will come in very handy.
