A new little friend has just been listed on etsy HERE. I am quite proud of this little guy…i might even make him a brother. Excuse the lazy iPhone photos, i photographed a wedding on Sunday and my cameras are both still full of photos from that so i didn’t want to use them.
Just letting everyone know I just added some new items to the shop over on etsy including paintings and some fuzzy friends.
Well i am well and truly obsessed with this needle felting stuff. It’s an addictive little hobby that’s for sure. I have been making mice lately, trying to work out the best method I have their faces pretty much down to a fine art, and their bodies are not too bad but i am still struggling with limb construction. I just can’t seem to get the arms and legs to look right. I think i need to look up a few more tutorials. The problem is that it’s just so fiddly and small, and i can’t get the elt to compact tight enough to make the arms and legs thin enough. I’ve seen samples of the effect i want but can’t seem to replicate it.
Oh well, i shall persevere, in the mean time the house is being over run with rodents. If anyone wants to adopt one of these guys then just leave a comment and i’ll draw three names out of a hat and post them off to new homes while i work on cloning a few better versions to sell.
What is with this weather?? Yesterday was glorious, a real taste of spring. Blue sky, soft breeze and just gorgeous. Today, cold wet and yuck… and tomorrow is meant to be even worse.
After spending the morning catching up with some lovely mummy’s and bubbys at a play center, me and Noah spent the rest of the day plonked on the couch in front of the tv with the the heater cranked up.
While watching the rain pour down I decided to create a little winter mouse, complete with a toasty warm crochet winter scarf. I thought he was quite cute, but I couldn’t work out what was missing until Trent came home and pointed out he has no whiskers. Of course! How could I forget?
I’m also not 100% happy with his tail, it feels like its not attached very well so I need to tweak a few things here and there. But once the kinks are worked out I plan on making a few more as well as a few other little furry friends to add to my etsy store. So stay tuned.
