  I was much inspired by all the wooly fabulousness at the enormous Sheep and Wool Festival in Rhinebeck, NY a few weeks ago.  It was awesome.  So much to see. And I made a few little things. I neglected to take pics to indicate scale. Piggy is about
1 1/2" tall, cow about 3", flamingo about 5"?. Enjoy. And plan on going next year.

Wow!  These are amazing.  Did you use an armature, or just wing it?  They look great.

Thanks!  The pig and the cow were straight up solid needle felted, but the flamingo has wire and its feet are felted to the base for stability.

They are all extremely adorable, but cow has udders and that is just too cute.  I think you did an amazing job.
