i've had to be away from my ludwig for a while because of.. life and stuff, and i missed him, so i had to make something to remember him by and ease the distance. needle felting is a neat little technique that basically lets you sculpt wool into solid figures using tiny barbed needles that interlock the fibers together. like here!

before:



after:






and of course, my inspiration!

I agree with the selling, who wouldn't want one that resembles their babies?!
You even made the little pearl dots, that's really brilliant and adorable:)

wow, thanks everyone!!! i'm still very new to the craft, so i'd be nervous about charging anyone money for what i make right now. each piece takes a couple of hours, but because of a wrist injury that prevents me from doing anything like repetitive stabbing for too long, that usually ends up getting spread over a few days.

eventually i would LOVE to sell and do custom tiels/birds (i've got a galah in the works) for people. i'm just so happy with the support you guys have given me!!
