I made this 2.5" Mr Grinch and put him on my Etsy this morning (he sold within 10 hrs!).  It's my first face (and my first sale!) and I must admit that I was really pleased with him.  Although, I got a bit fed up with my 10yr old telling me that Mr Grinch did in fact look like a green dog! Sad

I also made this tiny little bugeyed birdie - at only 2" tall he's very petite. 

I gave these a quick wet felting to tighten up the fibres when finished.  Although sometimes the fuzzy look works too!

I'm making a bear at the moment so hopefully will have him finished tonight.

Thanks fiberpharmer!  It's a bit surreal to think that he's hanging on somebody's tree right now!  Wink
