I am supposed to be wet felting wedding presents, but I have been sidetracked by my felting needles Grin
Nothing big this time but I thought we all like pictures of new feltstuff.

I felted a rabbit patch to go with one of my handspun yarns I named "Rabbit Munch". The white in the ears is rabbit fur Wink

And I have 2 heads that want want to be whole figures at some stage.
A pointy eared Pixie

The rabbit is so sweet - at first glance and then not.... ahh catch that mysterious gleem.


As usual, the heads, oh what a hand and eye you have Caedara!  Awesome.  You get such great definition, character and detail.  Love them.

Sometimes one needs to do other things while an idea for "the big project" percolates and foments.... is that truth or excuse?  Not sure, but definately use it myself.   


If you put one of those heads on a cork and make a cape-- maybe there is a nifty wine bottle accent?  Or felt a body to wrap around and hug the bottle.

 So fun, so diverse!

The detail is really nice. The last head on that vase makes me think of using it as a gourd doll head. I like GO's idea for the wine topper too. That would make an excellent gift!

Your pointy eared Pixie is seriously cute.
I can just imagine wonderful he might look with his felted pixie outfit, with little pointed felt pixie shoes. He looks so mischevious. His name could be Hamish

The bunny and heads are really cute but wowee  Shocked  that hand spun yarn has me reaching for my knitting needles. Its fantastic, and what an apt name too.

BTW what did you use for the hair on the 2nd head??

Thanks!
The Pixie is definately going to have pointy shoes Wink

The other guy still need facial details. The shape is finished but he can't smile or see yet.
For the hair I used Wensleydale curls. I've ordered some Wensleydale fleece straight from the sheep. It was advertised as rather clean, but when I got it it was soaked in piss and shit, full of vegie matter,...Disgusting! Angry I definately won't buy unwashed wool again unless I can see it in person beforehand.
I was tempted to just bin it. Sad But in the end I soaked and washed it 10 times with hot water and soap. Of course it felted, but it was the only way to make it usable. So for the hair I cut some curls out of that tangled mess of slightly less smelly Wensleydale fur.

"Rabbit Munch" was fun to spin.
I used to have a rabbit. One sunny day in summer it escaped. We searched for him and found him in the neighbour's vegetable garden, munching away of course. How happy that little rabbit was! And how fuming that neighbour...  Grin

Grace, that cork idea is great. I will do one for us as soon as I am back from Germany (I have tableware with a dragon motiv in mind...). By the way, did you get my email? I've not heared back from you yet...
