I dusted off my felting needles today (it's been far too long!) and this is what I made.





I've been meaning to make a larger, more detailed version of some shrunken heads I made awhile back. I used a foam ball for the core, to save wool. I think it made it a little sturdier too. Then I built up his eyelids, nose, lips, and especially his chin with layers of roving. I sacrificed sturdiness for texture with his hair, as the top layer isn't felted at all, except to secure it at both ends of the fibers. I think it looks better, but it could probably get messed up easily. I'm looking for some string to give him some stitches in his eyelids and lips, I don't have any that's the right thickness. I keep giggling every time I look at him, and I'm completely jealous of his hair.  Wink

Thanks for looking!

I literally laughed out loud when I say this!  Utterly pointless and yet awesomely amazing!  This is freakin' hilarious and I totally want one.  He kind of looks like a zombie with the green skin.  You freaking rock.

He's hilarious!
I think you've done an awesome job of felting him too.
I don't think it matters that the top layer of hair isn't felted.
The rest is so solid, and it gives a better effect
