I am learning more with each creation. Techniques, what work and what doesn't. I am self taught and started just a few month ago but I am having so much fun.

This is my newest creation...





The house, with the roof on, is 12 inches tall and the diameter of the mushroom stem is 7-8 inches wide. The door and window both open and there is a wire frame deep in the core of the house above the door and around the bottom to help keep its shape. The door knob is a button that has been securely sewed on and then secured agin with more wool. Besides those three elements, the entire house is made of wool.





Below the window there is a cute little flower box and there are small mushrooms growing out of the grass around the base with vines spanning the walls.

This is the perfect size for the creature that I make..



Thanks for looking!

The mushroom is cute, but then, I see the door that opens and after that, the window with the windowsill. Add the little bunnies and it's fantastic!
