A great big tarantula with fuzzy legs and a big heart.



He`s such a handful with 8 bendy legs and 6 shiny eyes.

He is so big! Armature? Needle felted? Can you quantify his size for us? Specs, please!

Thanks guys!  Smiley
He's needle felted on a wire frame and measures about 8" across with legs straightened out Smiley

I loved making him as I am afraid of spiders and was surprised to see such a cute sweet creature come out Cheesy ... I think I'm a little less scared now :-)

I'm not sure if I'm horrified or overcome by adorableness...

Either way, I'm impressed with your needle-felting Cheesy

Very impressive. I forgot to say that last time. I like him a lot! He reminds me of a toy I used to wear on the shoulder of my uniform when I worked at Taco Bell in High School, but way cooler.

Thank You all! <3
I must admit he`s the first spider I`ve ever wanted to cuddle with Cheesy-  no matter how fuzzy they are, they still freak me out Tongue
