1  Owlets. They're just so darn cute! in Felting: Completed Projects by petskin on: April 23, 2015 10:22:21 AM
So I had to try and make them (esp. cause I was itching to use my new big black glass beads Cheesy)

I was mostly trying to get his looks closer to barred owl and I added some actual feathers to wool.
It's so fluffy and I just want to touch it.


Thanks! Smiley

2  The mummy family. in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by petskin on: April 20, 2015 07:13:48 PM
All cute and stitchy.
I'm still not sure if they're more like mummies or more like Frankenstein's cousins... maybe second cousins?

Somehow they're so fun to make and pose around.
And it's always so funny, how perfect brand new quality silk and french knots make something so used and creepy looking. (not by accident, of course).

Here they are:

3  Rainbow scorpion in Needlework: Completed Projects by petskin on: April 19, 2015 11:08:46 AM
I love making arachnids (still scared of them Cheesy) - and after I made the more realistic scorpion a little while ago, I decided to make a colorful happy scorpion, dressed up with happy bright colored stitches.
It's needle felted on a  wire frame and then stitched all over (wow, never knew stitching such a small thing can take SO MANY HOURS- hat off to all of You embroidery folks!). It's really fun, though.

He's fully posable, about 6" long, with red glass bead eyes (Cool and howlite bead "stinger"

Hope You like it! Smiley

Thanks for all the love! Smiley

He is sad and cute, all in one! I guess you didn't mail him because you needed him the most...

I need me a little blue cactus too! I guess even more than one...

Life hurts, hug a cactus... Something like that?  Tongue

I really love your cactus and especially because he will only be hugable when you need it. Great job!!

You did sent it by now, did you?!!

Some days we do need all the blue things we can get, right? Smiley
I did mail it a little while ago, finally Cheesy - and I also shared the Blue wagon's song with my friend- for those extra blue days - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_4m-jXuQHLg

7  Flaming kitty in Felting: Completed Projects by petskin on: April 17, 2015 12:54:15 PM

Aren't the anniversary gifts the hardest to come up with?
I was at total loss at what to get to Mr. Petskin, when I remembered he had shown me a picture of a flaming cat a while ago, and said "if I ever wanted a felted sculpture and put it on my desk it work, it would probably be this cat".


So, as soon as I remembered it, I started googling, found the image (I wish I would find, whom to credit, most links go to pinterest

http://www.polyvore.com/fire_cat_cats_wallpaper_23634/thing?id=22456403) and got to work.

Fingers crossed he'll like it!

(I know he would like a clean house better and I could've cleaned it pretty well, in the time it took to make the cat, Cheesy ... but, You know, the artist's soul needs a bit more than a mop and some bleach... I prefer wool Tongue

Hope You like! Smiley

8  Morgan & Kade / Then and now in Felting: Completed Projects by petskin on: April 15, 2015 02:59:17 PM
My very first attempt at actual animals was 2011, when I made my first dog for a grieving neighbor as a memorial gift for her sweet 3-legged pup.
We all loved Morgy, she was such a sweetheart.
So, time has passed and I've made many dogs, but this is my new favorite- cause he's another special boy, that proves 3 legs is just enough.
I just love these special guys <3

And as making him reminded me of Morgan, I wanted to compare, how they look next to each other.
I'm pretty happy to see the progress in my work and to know that these little sculptures make a bit of a difference in someone's life.

And here's a bigger pic of the pitbull:

9  Gift for my friend :) in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by petskin on: April 09, 2015 09:27:17 AM
My best friend moved cross country and bought a house (  Cry ), so finally I got around to make her something small.
(It basically says something like "blessed be the house, the surroundings, the pockets and the heart in older version of our language).

Neat fact- the wool bits used are from our weekly thrift shop finds, when we used to "save" all the silk and cashmere we could fin.
(I'm really sad for losing my only crafty friend, my only thrift store buddy and my only same-nationality friend. But, she did move up and I'm happy for her).

10  ... those tiny arms... in Felting: Completed Projects by petskin on: April 04, 2015 10:02:19 PM
You know those poor T-rex guys, with teensy arms- I love those jokes! (sorry!)
So, as a no T-rex left behind project- finally they can swim!
A little dinosaur earned a swimming ring today and can safely waddle on the beach with no worries Smiley

Look how happy he is now!

I love making fun little guys Smiley
