Morning all, as promised this was my friends pressie!It's for her 70th Birthday, which was yesterday.
She has had this dog for a while now but I haven't
seen him yet.
I made this little dog from a photo of him.
It took me quite a long time, as I had to first make the curly
wool, from my Needle Felting stash.
I had to pull small amounts of the special wool, from my
stash. Then wrap it around a kebab stick, spray it with water
and put it in the airing cupboard to dry!!
I have no idea how many I had to do for each colour!!
While they were drying, I made the body shape, head,
arms, legs and tail from 'Core wool'.
When the wool was taken off the sticks, I had to cut them
into 2cm pieces and then with my needles, stab them onto
the body, legs etc one piece at a time!!
As you can see from the back of his body, they had to be
very close to each one.
The most important for me to do, was to have the right
shades of the colours, in the pattern on his body.
Side view of his head and legs. He does have back legs
but he is sitting on them!!
His collar I made with some beads, findings and wire
from my jewellery stash.
Yes I used to make earings, necklaces and other bits!!
I phoned my friend and she was thrilled with him and couldn't
get over his face, as it was exactly as he looks!!
Also the patterns on his body.
She showed him to her daughter and she was shouting
in the background,
please could I make her one!!! She loved him too!!
So I will not do it straight away, but may start it
sometime next month!!
Just got a few cards for the second Care Home I supply
with cards for them.
Then I might do a page for my Family Scrapbook.
Thank you for all your lovely messages on my last post.
They are always read and appreciated .
