This is little Billy on his birthday. He stands just 3 inches tall and is firmly needle felted from alpaca, llama and corriedale wool around a wire frame. He has polymer clay, black onyx bead eyes and horse hair whiskers. He comes complete with his wooden hobby horse and birthday cupcake. Little Billy is wearing a removable red felt cowboy hat and little red and white kerchief. He's currently for sale on eBay. http://www.ebay.com/itm/190854677165?ss … 1555.l2649
Are you using commercial felt to needle felt? Some of the commercial felts are felted a little too well and are quite hard to penetrate and do not stick to the others well. I sometimes use a matching color of wool roving to needle felt the pieces together. When looking for commercial felt to needle felt, you should look for felt that's fairly soft. You might want to try wet felting your own flat pieces.
Here's little Flurry. I found him at a local thrift store. He was completely cut out and one leg and his body were sewn. He just cried out to be finished. I normally do needle felting. But this little fellow tugged at my heart as I hope he will yours. He's 8 inches tall standing and is 5-way cotter pin jointed. I stuffed him with polyfil so that he still has body. But he is huggably soft. He's made from rayon purchased from Edinburgh. He came with the left over material with the tag still on. He also came with some small plastic eyes. I gave him black onyx bead eyes instead. I also embroidered his little nose and mouth. He was shaded with artist inks. I hope you like him. His eBay auction starts tonight at 6:45 PM PST with a $35.00 opening bid.

Hi everyone! I just listed little Stanley on eBay, tonight. His auction is a 10 day auction so he won't end on Easter Sunday. He is needle felted and hand-dyed. He has German glass eyes and Apoxie Sculpt claws and measures 2 1/4 iches tall and 5 inches long. I hope you like him. Also, if you visit my auctions, I'm auctioning my store inventory with no reserve. So you may be able to pick up one of my felties on the cheap side.
This is the ouch thread! I just kringe reading all of the posts. But you know we suffer for our art! I like to needle felt while waiting for things to load on my computer. One day I put my needle felting pen containing three needles in my mouth so I could type. It slipped out of my mouth and stabbed me in the stomache with all three needles. Did that teach me not to slouch while typing or not to put the pen in my mouth? NO! I did the same thing again twice. The last time they were sticking all most straight up. I've given up playing darts with my tummy and don't put the pen in my mouth anymore. But I still slouch while typing. :redface: :redface: :redface:

Thanks for the heads up. I haven't really checked into the changes in the final value fee structure. I really hate having a store. I used to have one when I was selling my paintings. But I found that I couldn't sell enough things through it to make it worth my while. Now it looks like if I have a store my fees would be a lot less. Go figure?
It's been nearly 2 years since I started making little needle felted critters. To celebrate this, I'm hosting a give-away drawing for one of my needle felted mice. You can enter by visting and posting a comment on my blog. The drawing will be held March 21, 2010. Each comment you make counts one entry. My blog address is http://needlefeltedart.blogspot.com Thanks and I hope to see you there.
I just relisted this little one on eBay. She didn't make her reserve the first time around and I thought you all might want to take a look. This time there is no reserve and the bidding starts at $135.00. She's completely needle felted and has taxidermy glass eyes. She stands at about 6 1/2 inches tall. I hope you enjoy her .
