Meet Squeek. Squeek loves to play dress up and has decided that he wants to be the Easter Bunny this year for Halloween. Along with him is his pet Runt who is enjoying the Halloween festivities too! For whatever reason no matter how many houses he goes to Squeek's basket never seems to get heavy or full.

Squeek's left arm has a pipe cleaner skeleton. I made the wire in the fingers too short so he has a little felt tab to help hold up his baskets. You can't tell in the photo but his left ear is bent forward.




Some Details on the Fingers and Toes.




Small details include candy corn (all the way to the left, not well photographed), multicolored jawbreaker, and a white chocolate chip cookie. Also Runt is holding a lollipop if you were wondering what that was.


Squeek stayed like this for a while because I thought he was adorable this way. I added the veins not only to match his original sketch but because it would make him more monster-like.

I got to experiment with lots of things with this project which was the best part. I' got to needle felt one of my drawings that is somewhere in my room collecting dust. I have tried to find it but I don't know where I put it. This is also the first time I have used pipe cleaners or wire of any type in a project. I made the basket by felting them first over a styrofoam form. I don't tend to make things so small so it was very challenging to make all the basket items.

I'm very proud of how this came out and I'm please at how quickly I am progressing with needle felting. Expect to see more of Squeek in the future! I am thinking of doing a miniseries.

Thanks for all the compliments! I had a blast making this guy. I'm so happy we had this challenge or else I may have never done anything with that drawing!
