Hi! So I made this squirrel today and thought I'd share him with you. I made him out of a wool sweater that I felted and faux fur for the tail. I think he's pretty darn cute!! And I have a question for any of you who work with faux fur - is there an easy way to turn a faux fur piece?! It took me 30 minutes to turn his tail right side out! Ugh! The fur I used has a fairly stiff backing and is a 1 inch pile. Any suggestions?
Comments are always welcome too!
Thanks in advance!
Cheers!







Thanks again!

That's so cute!  It looks like my dog's favorite toy, Squirrely, only cuter.

Aw, I love his little face and his arms. He looks like he's asking for a squirrely hug! What a good use of an old sweater!

All I can think of is the scene from Christmas Vacation, "SQUIRREL!!!"

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!
