Needle felt animals ....reversebarb fuzz

 Above are my two newest from largest to smallest (the little guy is sitting on the big guys paw) . I'm the first to admit that I'm not great with miniatures but this guy turned out kind of cute .
 My cat gives a bit of a size perspective and you can see last weeks critters in the background . The larger ones do take about 5 days of full time poking but part of that has been an extra day of using the reverse barb felting needles to give them that furry texture and the rooted in fur of bamboo fibers for longer hairs . I am in love with the reverse barb needles and having fun playing with different layers to see what makes the best fuzz .
 SO that is how I spent every hour not sleeping or working . pokepokepokepoke(ouch)pokepokepokepokepokepokepoke($%&^%)pokepokepoke

Happy felting !


  1. Krex these are AMAZING! I love their silky fur and expressive faces.. they look like they should get up and start moving around - wonderful work! xx

  2. Thanks for the kind words . I am not good at making real animals but I think I'm getting the hang of making fantasy animals that look more real . I am absolutely loving the soy and corn fiber roving for animal fur and the reverse barb needles have been a revolution in creating fuzzy animals .
