Very creative and inspiring!  Because my ears freeze in cold weather, I am drawn to hats with ear flaps and yours is so whimsical. I also love the colors  Smiley

These are all adorable!!!  My favorite would have to be the brownish-orangey-dark forest green colored monster with its arms and legs brushed out super soft  Smiley It looks right at home there on the woodpile (it would be more comfy on MY back, though  Wink

All of the dresses look very easy and comfortable to wear Smiley I love #2 because it looks so soft.  I love #3 for the beautiful design of the fabric.  Very scenic background, also!!

Wow...the yarn is so weird that it actually makes the little guy look...really, really cute. If you put him beside the couch in my grandparents house, he'd blend right in. The fabric on that thing is almost identical!

I actually picked that combination of colors for my wall-to-wall carpeting in 1975. We had bought a house that had hard-wood floors, but when our baby started crawling we carpeted over the wood. Your darling multi-colored bunny brought back fond memories  Smiley

That is so awesome! I've been wanting to create a scene like that out of all the materials I have saved. I love all the little details such as the dragonflies and smoke coming from the chimneys...fantastic!!

Thank-you for desribing it in more detail. The only papier mache I have done was around balloons. I just love dogs and your Airedale is so creative with such simple materials. I love it!!
Thank you everyone for your kind comments  Cheesy My Dad was really pleased to recieve him, but I think mostly because I went to the trouble of making something instead of spending my money in the shops.

I love it! How did you get the texture to look like dog fur? Is there wire under there?
I didn't use chicken wire, although you could do. I started instead by bunching up balls of newspaper and building the overall shape by sticking these balls together using masking tape. Once the form looked more or less like I wanted it to, I started layering strips of glue-y newspaper and tweaking the shape with each layer. The final layer was a thin covering of polyfilla which I think is what gives the terrier his rough looking coat and although the majority of his face was built up using Papier Mache pulp, the polyfilla helped a little with refining the details. Then it was just a case of painting him up and fitting a collar Smiley
