I made my first real attempt at needle felting tonight Cheesy I made a wee felt version of my sun conure, Peanut.


It ended up really tiny because I hadn't realized when I started how compacted the wool gets when you needle felt it all together. It's only about 1.5'' tall. I think I'll try for something bigger next time, because there was a lot of accidental finger stabbing. Yowch.


The back

The other side

My wee little first felt creature Smiley


The likeness is unmistakable, and Peanut is weirded out by the little thing.


He is suspicious... and will keep a close watch on this tiny imposter.

Thanks for looking Cheesy

that's to awesome!  I love the way Peanut is looking at his miniature!  Fair warning, there are still a lot of finger stabbings on bigger pieces.... Or at least in my experience... Cheesy

I suppose it's just something I have to look forward to Wink haha!

Peanut was so curious, but at the same time so freaked out. It was super funny.

I love it! I can't believe how tiny it is. Do you have any fingers left. Smiley Peanut is gorgeous as ever.
