Think outside that lumpy oval of a head... what?!

Well, here she is, all 2 1/8 in. of her. Smiley

She is needle felted from yarn and her little Day of the Dead mask is felt; embroidered and sewn into a mask.
She seems more like a toy because she has a movable head, arms, and legs, so I put her into this category but let me know if she should go into fiber arts.

Here with her whole ensamble. I think I might have made her pillbox hat too little for her big ear because it takes a few tries to get it to sit right.

And shock... her mask is removable. Wink (Somehow, I don't think I fooled you)

And some detail shots of her mask

I had quite a time making her and I'm still having fun putting her into funny poses. Still trying to figure out what to put her in because I made her with the intention of gifting her to a friend. A part of me is begging to keep her but I should be good and stick to my original plan. Wink
Thanks for looking! Comments and critiques totally welcome.

Wow. What an impressive little project. So tiny but so intricate!

I think the hat is the perfect fit. Great job Smiley.

So cute! Love her little mask Smiley

I'd be interested in doing a personal swap with anyone who wants to do a fabric-wool swap. I have lots of wool and yarns!

Thank you SO much everyone! I'm glad you guys liked her.
I was thinking of making more figures who each have their own crafting skill. Like a rabbit who felts or a fox who paints, so your words have totally encouraged me to get working on them.
Thanks again! Smiley
