yeah so i got this urge to make a needle felted yeti! he has a pipe cleaner armature so he's poseable, glass eyes, and i used british leicester as the base coat, then lamb's wool for his "fur". his face is silver merino. i really like how his coat turned out but i think he might need more of a face? i tried to give him a black merino smile but he looked really lame, lol. i think he's about 7" tall.


can i get a vote of how many peeps think he needs a mouth/nose?

Maybe you can add a mouth and nose in the same colour (not in black)  so you can see a little difference in his face

He's adorable! I would go with a pointed-tooth showing grin, personally!

He's really cute! I wouldn't add him much of a face, only, as suggested, a bit of features, because I think he would lose the cuteness if he had teeth or so. This way he looks so nicely harmless. Grin

so sweet!  I vote no on the mouth and nose, he's sort of charming and inscrutable right now.

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.

Ack! He's sooo cute! I wanna pinch his little merino cheeks.

I can't think of a lot of features that would suit him. It would change his expression a little, but what about a teeny little off-centre smile? Maybe with one tiny tooth. Here's my very sad attempt to draw what I mean. Might be too cutesy, though.

lol the one with the tooth reminds me of meatwad from athf a bit Smiley i was thinking maybe a really toothy grin with sharpish teeth... so many choices!

Lol. It does kinda look like meatwad. 

He's such a cutie, I don't think there's a wrong answer.
