Made 2 teensy teddy bears last night Smiley - I love making tiny things- they're instantly cuter Cheesy

Needle felted with tiny plaid tummies.

Hope You like!
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / She's got it all! :) on: June 15, 2015 09:08:00 PM
A little conjoined twin doll, with tattoos and beards and they're also mighty strong! Smiley
I made this for my swap partner in the Circus swap.

(sewn from felt with wire armature inside to make it posable and painted eyes with embroidered details).

3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / A little smooth green snake on: June 14, 2015 11:59:44 AM
I made this little guy yesterday and I'm just so happy how she turned out (he? She? Cheesy) - even if I was stitching til 5am and I probably have to go and get a carpal tunnel surgery done today, it was so worth it, as it turned out exactly how I wanted it to Cheesy

he measures about 11" long and is needle felted and then covered in chain stitches (hat off to embriderererers!), many, many of them Tongue

Hope You like!
(I also mad this yellow little guy - the golden tarantula baby, I like posing things/animals/insects together Cheesy)

4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Baby loris "Lola" on: May 07, 2015 12:36:55 PM
I'm always torn between what to make and my go to-s are either just cute or creepy cute Cheesy
This time I wanted to make something "just cute" -
Little Lola is needle felted and is just under 4" tall (when sitting).

Thanks for looking! Smiley
5  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Owlets. They're just so darn cute! 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
6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / The mummy family. 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:

7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Rainbow scorpion 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
8  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Flaming kitty 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
9  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Morgan & Kade / Then and now 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:

10  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Gift for my friend :) 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).
