I am brand new to needle felting and I am sooooo inspired by your precious dogs! For my first project I used the fur that I brushed from my dog (Collie/Shephard mix) and I was going to try and make a needle felted dog that resembled her… Lo and behold after hours of work I ended up with a baby elephant! I don’t know how to attach a picture… perhaps I can email it to you? I have completed my second and third projects; a penguin and a bunny… Still my goal is to make realistic dogs like you do! Thanks for having this blog.
