I have been very productive these last days, but have surprisingly little to show. Almost everything is work in progress. But I did finish one thing: my first attempt at needle felting a cat (Three more are in the making- this is fun!)
Not quite happy with the result yet, but very happy with all the things I learned in the process of felting this little bugger. And that’s why I show the kitty anyway despite the flaws.
I was too impatient to wait for the smaller eyes I ordered and used some I already had. They are too large, which makes for a rather nose-heavy result. They are safety-eyes, and although it makes them easier to put in it means you can’t really poke into the head to change the form. Next time I will use smaller eyes. And next time I will use thinner wire for the armature and improve the overall anatomy.
But this kitty will fit nicely in my next diorama.
Oh, my ! Wonderful !
Thank you 🙂
Love your needle-felted kitty! At first glance I thought I saw a larger doll next to a real live cat. And if you hadn't pointed out the things you want/need to fix, I wouldn't have noticed. I've wanted to try needle-felting for years and even bought a simple kit once. It still sits there unopened. Too many projects, too little time. I'll sit here and enjoy looking at yours instead.
Thank you :). I'll make more. Oh, do try, it's fun really. And it's probably a good way to make hats and boots or even wigs.
It's hard to belive it's the first cat you have made. 🙂
Damn, lady, you never cease to amaze me with your skills!! Your dioramas are amazing, and now these needle felted kitties? *dies* That is stunning! I bow before your talent.
