I'm new here and I'm just recently completed this needle felted Unicorn for a Last Unicorn Art Contest. I wrote a long blog about her construction and I thought ya'll might want to see her too. if you are interested you can read all the details at: http://gypsyharte.blogspot.com/2010/07/needle-felted-unicorn-creation.html
She's approx 9" x 12" horn to tail and her coat is fine white merino over core wool on a wire armature. Her mane and tail and fetlocks are silk mixed with bamboo, firestar, and wool. Her eyes are glass and I hand sculpted the hooves and horn from polymer clay
Thanks
Joyce





I've been really enjoying browsing all the topics in the Fiber section!

How utterly beautiful! I love every part of her, especially the detail on her facee and the flowing hair on her mane and fetlocks.

The Last Unicorn was my favorite movie when I was a kid. I saw it at Walmart a few months ago and had to buy it. I told them that it was for my little sister....I don't even have a little sister lol.
