Spiders are so beautiful!
Well, many of them.  I am pretty freaked out by spiders, in general, but for some reason I lovelovelove felting them. Almost therapeutic as they turn out so fuzzy and cute and smell like sheep Cheesy

I needle felted another tarantula- the cobalt blue tarantula. He measures about 7,5" wide with his legs spread out.

Hope You like! Smiley

And hanging out with his buddy, the peacock spider Cheesy

Eeep!! Spiders scare the heck out of me!! Except the really tiny ones.

I don't feel any different about the felted blue spider, but that means you did a GREAT job!! It looks way too real even though it is blue  Grin

This rocks and so do you!  Cheesy

Double EEP!! Blue spiders, yikes... I liked the idea of them not excisting better, haha!

I am so not into spiders, I would have never thought they could actually be blue! Well okay, little ones but not the hairy ones.

But again, a great job!!  Cheesy
