I made (needle felted) little doggies and I'm so happy how they turned out Smiley
I also love playing around with them and posing for fun scenes. Too bad felted sculptures can't be bent for gazillion times, it would be fun to make videos with them.

THey really are adorable and amazingly skilfully made!!

Too bad felted sculptures can't be bent for gazillion times, it would be fun to make videos with them.

If you felted around pipe cleaners, you could bend them a bit more...?

"If you felted around pipe cleaners, you could bend them a bit more...?"


I'm afraid it won't make much difference, as I'm felting them on a wire frame anyway, but it's not the frame, that stops from bending the sculpture, but the fibers, that would come loose after moving around too much and "un-felt" the doggies.

And these 2 are 3" long. Teensy Smiley



I also finished another one today- he's a bit bigger.



And I appreciate all thecompliments! <3
