OK GUY’S, HERE’S MY FIRST FELTIE. I MADE THIS WHEN I STARTED FELTING TWO YEARS AGO.
I always try to make an improvement on each sculpture that I make. This little pom was made with yarn that I pulled apart as I didn’t have any wool, but I had needles and by George, I WAS going to felt something! It’s very rough and sometimes I feel like fixing it up, but I think that it’s special as it is. It shows me that I’ve come a long way. I used plain plastic beads and no nose, just black wool. You’d be surprised the difference that glass eyes and a sculpted nose makes! When I am felting a dog or other animal, I mark the eyes with straight pins that have black balls on the ends. I mar k the nose with black wool. When I change them to glass eyes and a sculpted nose, a transfromation takes place with a huge improvement.
Anyway, I thought that you would be curious as to what my first feltie looked like!! I tried sticking wires into the legs after I made it so it would stand up on it’s own. LOL!! and no I’m not entering it in the contest!
This is one of my recent poms. Notice a difference? Hey we all have to start somewhere right!
