NEEDLE FELTED CONTEST ENTRY~DINOSAURS~by LESLEY~JUST STARTED!

woolly_mammoth

I’ve attached a few pictures of my contest entries – some needle felted dinosaurs. I’m brand new to needle felting. I’ve been felting for about a week, and these are the third, fourth and fifth creations that I’ve ever made. I was so excited when the stegosaurus’ plates tucked right in with the felting needle – it’s so addictive!

So far there’s a brontosaurus, a stegosaurus, and a woolly mammoth. I’m not sure what got me started with dinosaurs, but I’ve always loved them and I realized that a lot of people sculpt mystical creatures out of felt – gnomes, mermaids, faeries, etc. I think dinosaurs inspire a similar fascination.

Each dino is between 5-7″ from head to tail, made with wire armatures coated with undyed wool, then with colorful roving. The stegosaurus’ plates and the mammoth’s tusks are made from a sheet of cream colored felt.

Thank you for considering my entry and I look forward to learning more about needle felting!

Best Wishes,

Lesley
