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 ^^

What?!? This is the best thing ever! Rocked!
My favorite touch is how his ears are dimensional, like he's peeking out of a hidey-hole in a tree.

That is the cutest thing ever.  I love how you have his ears popping out of the frame.

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.
