I love seeing those gorgeous (tiny) spiders- their dance videos are super cool. And their vibrant colors look so beautiful.
I'm also afraid of them in real life- any spider or bug freaks me out :

...but they look so cute when felted Tongue

So I made another felted spider and I love him. He's huge compared to the real ones (0,5cm), but still cute and fuzzy.




He's made on a wire armature in the needle felting technique with 1 needle (it sounds so crazy, but I love the control over the needle you get when using just a single one).

Hope You like! Smiley

Another wonderful project from you, petskin!  I don't like spiders much, but he's adorable!  (maybe because I know he won't crawl at me Smiley )

Thanks! Smiley I thing he looks really cute too! (not sure if I felt that way if one was too close to me, though Cheesy ... I'm afraid of spiders. But after the weekend of gardening and killing another dozen [no kidding, sadly] of black widows in 3x2 ft area I'm starting to get braver {as long as I have the spray can Tongue}).

And I barely ever make anything without wire in it- I really like changing the positions on the sculptures and I love how they feel "meatier" that way too Cheesy
