I am so happy this idea actually got done. It's a needle felted Lorax. I challenged myself to do it, and I DID! WOOOO

I agree. Perfect representation Smiley

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.

Thank you for all the great replies!

He sold! I was super excited! He'll be living in NYC now! YESSSS

This random person on etsy contacted me to see if I would make another one. I said sure and got to work! If I don't hear back from her (after a few back-and-forth exchanges) I will just list it in the shop.

He's more Concerned, Pleading Lorax rather than Angry Lorax like the first one. His beard in #2 is from a Random Crazy Quilt Farm fiber cloud from Homestead Wool and Gift (http://www.homesteadwoolandgiftfarm.com)



He's super fun to make!

Aww, I don't know which one I like more! ...Do you think you could make any other Dr Seuss characters? *doesn't know whether to hope the answer is yes or no* LOL.

Bwahahah!
YES! I want to make Thing 1 and Thing 2 since I already have 2 batts that have been sitting around (I've not done that much to promote them though.)

My daughter's favorite right now is the ABC book, and I think it would be fun to make a Fiffer-feffer-feff or the super cute orange owl from "Oscar's only ostrich oiled an orange owl today" page.

I suppose I have to be careful with the Copyright Police...right? Like, if I do Cindy Lou or Horton Hears a Who when they are already out in movie form v. book form? Any lawyers that are on here?

What other Seuss characters would be fun felted? They're really fun to make.

Yeah, probably. Copyright can be such a pain!! Sad

My fav Seuss book is I Had Trouble in Getting to Solla Sollew. If you made the guy from that (especially him w/ his big bat at the end) I might just be FORCED to buy it. Grin

Felting looks like such a wonderful medium. I would love to see Ned from One Fish, Two Fish(the guy with the little bed, annoying mother and broken phone).

I also find it wonderful that the loraxes get to live in Christmas trees. He just loves trees so much.

Loraxes 3 and 4 are done! I did another angry and another concerned one. I can't decide which one I like better.

I am also doing Wickersham brother from Horton Hears a Who (book version) and a Who for a lady.
