Hi everyone! This is my very first attempt at needle felting. I started this rabbit a little over a week ago and just worked on it in the evenings while sitting on the couch. His arms, ears and individual fingers are all wired to move and hold their shapes. He has black German glass eyes and is felted from a combination of Merino and Corriadale wools. The white core that I started with is actually all done with polyfil stuffing and I felted the colors of wool over it. I still have some detail work to do and would like to add wiskers and a tail still. I am also going to make him a little vest and a ascot I think.
Great! Wonderful work and thank you for the pictures.
Wow that is fantastic, I can't believe it is your first time needle felting! :lol:
I haven't tried it yet, but hope when I do, my creations look as fantastic as yours!! :love:
wow it is fantastic
and the fact of being a first ... you for sure have a huge talent there !
Anthony, all I can say is WOW!
I simply can not say enough good things about this rabbit, I love the fact that you showed the progression as you worked on it. Fabulous. You certainly can needlefelt, I have tried but not too good I am afraid. Someday I will get better, but you have the nack and it is such a wonderful rabbit. Thanx so much for sharing and especially all the pictures as you went along.
Thank you all so very much for your encouraging words. I really enjoying looking at all of your work and everyone here is so nice!
I decided that Mr. Bunny needed clothing and so I created a sloper from his measurements and used that to create a pattern for his vest and coat. With the addition of some trim, buttons and lace, he is all ready to go to the show next month. I do not own a sewing machine, so I had to hand stich this after looking up how to make doll clothes online. Yes, this is my first time making clothes for one as well. Luckily, my grandmother taught me how to hand sew as a child and I really love how it turned out :)
Really cute :love:
You have a lot of talent
Brilliant, love him, and loved seeing all the pictures of him coming together
Amazing talent! Congrats Anthony - you are very wise to take the progression pix, too. Especially when you see your work a year from now.
Your costuming is exquisite, Grandmother taught you well!
Wow! He's marvelous! And I am so impressed that this is your first needle felted figure!!!
I'm absolutely amazed that this is your first attempt at needle felting! Mr. Bunny is fabulous and many thanks for showing us how he was made, that was very interesting. He looks brilliant in his clothes too which make him look very sophisticated!
As said before, you are obviously a "natural" when it comes to producing such lovely work.
Thank you all so very much for the kind words and encouragement. I will put up pictures of my newest creation as soon as it is finished. I am working on a rocking horse.........
Wow he is a a big guy. Lots of work. Great job.
