Juicy strawberries


  I wanted to take photos of my little needle felted rabbit
with his movable arms and legs, hugging a big juicy strawberry.
but today is overcast and raining and I'm not having much success
photographing his dark brown colour. 
... and a needle felted strawberry garland

Cats and Felt

Hi There,
I'd like you to meet Jake
He's a part of the family - rescued when he was just tiny
and has no tail and very little fur on his back legs
He lives with my daughter, her boyfriend and sister. 
With autumn here, a pod to sleep in is just what he needed.
 So we went to work using raw chocolate brown corriedale fleece
and this is the reward.
At first he slept with his head inside the pod and his body outside
- our Jake's not very smart sometimes, but a little bit of help ....

Jake thinks this is what kitty heaven must be like
and 'B' is enjoying the company while he does Uni work ....

Everyone is happy with the exception of Baby my daughter's cat.
So I guess it's time to make another !

What is felting?

"FELT" The Essential Macquarie Dictionary meaning:

"A non woven fabric of wool, fur or hair matted together by pressure"

Fibres can be manipulated with the use of soap, water, friction and heat variations ..........or the use of barbed needles to create many interesting, practical and wearable things.
