Last year in October I promised a friend of mine "something handmade" and she wanted "a raccoon". Since then I've been asking myself what I could do... it was supposed to be a small project. With a raccoon, of course.

I finally had an idea that I liked last week - a brooch with a felt raccoon. I love how it turned out - and she obviously likes it, too ^^

My favorite touch is how his ears are dimensional, like he's peeking out of a hidey-hole in a tree.

I get them from a wholesale website. (I did a quick search for etsy shops located in the USA first, but I didn't find any who offer those settings)

Thank you for sharing! Seeing them without the raccoon, I now recognize them as something I have seen before in jewelry supply sections at Michael's, Hobby Lobby, etc.

You're lucky then =) In Germany you hardly ever find them in craft stores, so you have to get them online.
