Needle felting cats is what got me into this art/craft, but it has been a while since I had the opportunity to do a serious cat (I've done some cute, fun feline projects). WHile I have a lot of projects that need attention, I decided to start this new year with a feline. My husband is calling this one Pryant (which I think is a reference to its size compared to my Prittens and not its name).

 Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

THANKS!!! I was aiming for real!!

I am a bit rusty on doing a serious cat - Prittens (pretty kittens) used to be all I did, but I've been doing lots of other needle felting projects and classes and I haven't done a serious cat in a couple of years. I really want to do more! I like this larger scale. I did like making ones that could fit in your hand, but there's a lot more you can do with a sculpture when it's a larger scale.
