After looking at the wonderful things everyone else has done I was inspired to try something myself. I'm pleased with the result, but next time I will look at a picture of my cat before I start shaping the face. I'm also pleased to have found a way of using up the bits of wool thatare too short to spin with.

Very cute. How tall is it? I am still too intimidated to really go 3D with my needling so good for you!

Thank you.
The cat is 5cm (2 inches) from ear tip to toe. I hadn't imagined I would produce anything so detailed when I started. I intended to make a basic cocoon shape for the body and ball for the head but got fancinated by the way the wool can be shaped with extra needling. Go ahead and have a go at something simple and see what happens.  Smiley

Very sweet.  I am so impressed by all you needle felters. Your 3D sculpture is amazing.

Very Cute!!! =^..^=

One of the wonderful things about needle felting is it is pretty easy to be successful and it's rather magical transforming that loose fiber into something that has shape!

You're unique! Just like everyone else!!
