I think I have a little give because it's kinda of bendable right now but they did comment it was quite firm for a first timer. I can't wait to try out more.

Sounds like a pretty good firmness!! One of my friends had trouble when she first started needle felting because she was felting much TOO firmly! Smiley

wow she's stunning! I was just about to post one of my pieces I've done lately - the first part Im actually fairly pleased with - and then I saw her and now I'm not so pleased at all!

Would love to know how you achieve the fur effect?

I'm sure your piece is excellent, Feline2001!!

I use silk for fur and root it a few strands at a time. It isn't particularly difficult, but it takes a lot of time to cover a complete creature and sometimes (as with this cat) portions of the sculpture have to be furred before being attached- like the lower front legs. It would have been next to impossible to fur those once they were attached to the body.

This is just soooo adorable! I seriously giggled when I saw it! I love the expressions and everything! You have great talent! Another of your items went to my favorites! Grin This makes me want to try needle felting sooo bad but I think my husband would kill me if I started another hobby! haha
