Hi All!

I have been lurking here for a while, checking out all the amazing crafts! I love to make things, but don't get to do it as often as I like. In the last year, I've discovered quilting, so that has been consuming most of my time, but I recently saw a teeny little stuffed doggy made by Loobylu:

and knew I had to make one! I love teeny things, and teeny animal things are even better. She used polarfleece, which I had none of, so I used some felted wool...

Anyway, here's my little doggy:

Edited to add a wee Panda I made at the request of a friend. He is about the same size as the doggy and lives in a gum tin...I mean...bamboo forest... Wink

So cute!!  You did a great job Smiley

In my experience, wool felt lasts much better than craft felt.

oh my god, that is absurdly cute!!!
wool felt does hold up to wear a LOT better than acrylic felt, but when working so microscopically, i think you may run into some problems:

the fibers in wool felt are breakable when it comes to detail.. for example, with this wool felt applique i did over here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=12750.0  the ends of the tree branches kept breaking off, because when the felt is cut with detail, it looses its weave (the only thing holding the little wool fibers in place are other wool fibers, and when you cut those off...)

so, i would give it a shot, but know you have to work really gently when it comes to the little peninsulas!

Awww.  That is so sweet.  It makes me think of the three little bears that my grandmother made me when I was very little.  She made a little house out of a cardboard box, with wallpaper and other decorations cut from magazines, and then she made the furniture and the Daddy Bear, Mommy Bear, and Baby Bear.  I think I have the pattern, and them, somewhere.  They were very sweet, and so is your little doggy.

Thanks guys! Y'all know how to make a sista' feel welcome!  Grin

It does look more like a bear, doesn't it? It was supposed to be a terrier. Once I get more practice, I want to try to make some that look like specific people's pets and give them as Christmas gifts! Fun!

Your doggy made me all happy! It reminded me of a little stuffed kittie I had when I was little, only mine was yellow and had embroidery all over it, it was really beautiful, just like your doggy!

Great Job!
