Let's play Y ou know, I like my pieces of art to be useful; save for the specific holiday pieces that will be stored away till next year. I made these animal masks for Halloween, but they’ll be very useful all year round for imaginative play. I’m going to hang them in the playroom and let the girls and their friends play dress up with them and at the same time I think they’ll make interesting decorations. The masks are very strong and they’ll hold up well in the hands of a bunch of kids.
I am so in love with felted animals. I imagine there is quite an intense process to create each masterpiece. But the results are so worth it. Here are a few of my favorites. So, so sweet! ♥
i finally got to this book, which has some really cute animals made by needle felting. i think the most special part of this book, is that it includes all the wee pastries and fruits that go along with the whimsical animal characters, many who have little shops! and, it shows how to make all the little accessories... and of course the animals themselves!

So its been a while since I have done any needle felting or any crafts lately. I have been doing a 30 days project, working on something everyday on my art blog and decided to do needle felting on Saturday. I finished this on Saturday night, but wasn't able to post the pictures or anything until today. He is made of 99% wool roving, with a pipe cleaner frame to make him poseable. Pipe cleaner may actually be more than 1% of total mass. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
