Those look a lot like Ugly Dolls (see http://www.wellcoolstuff.com/thestore/UD.html) but I'm sure they're MUCh cheaper to make!  Very cool!

Hi all! Yes, Ugly dolls were an ispiration, and the cutest palm sized felt animals at loobylu too (http://www.loobylu.com/archives/000015.html). And probably some more stuff that I don't remember anymore! I then used my own drawings and style as a base. It's been a lot of fun, and I learnt so much. At least, I now can sew straight and curves and angles... Smiley
Anyway, as promised, I'm working on the tutorial. i've just finished making another monster and taking pictures. I'm going to write the text now and post hopefully later on. Or tomorrow, at the latest. Bye for now and thanks for all the compliments! You all made me so happy!

Hi all and thanks to everyone for the nice words! Smiley
I promise I'll post a tutorial next week, as I probably will not have time to craft anything until then. Sigh.

Joanie, I must confess that I have no idea if the felt is wool or synthetic. Felt is rather hard to find in Italy (that's where I live), so I got what I could find. Most of the time here felt comes only in basic, horrible colors (for me), but I've been quite lucky finding some leftovers and samples in nice shades of brown and grey.
But the hunt goes on... Wink
 
I've washed it (for another project) and it holds the shape nicely and doesn't peel much. Don't know if this helps to identify what kind of felt it is..

cheers,
n.

Mmmm... I tried embroidering in different ways. I think the best result came with DMC embroidery floss, using only four of the six strands. Using all of them became very bulky. I used what I think is called a backstitch (very basic handstitch).

I'll make one more next weekend and I'll post a tutorial. Promise! Smiley

Hey, thanks! I used embroidery thread (brown, blue and black or metallic, which I didn't like much) for most of them. And I used felt and thread for those with the BIG eyes.
