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!
