❆ ❆ Baby roe deer girl ❆❆

I had no chance to work on her yesterday, sometimes things pop up and you have no choice but go with the flow. . . .
I was up early this morning and  finished her head just about now. I couldn't wait to see her with legs so I took Robin's advice and made the front legs of wooden dowels, the hind legs are bend, so I used wire for those.
Now, I have her standing on my kitchen table and try to see if they are the right size. 
It's better to put her away and don't look at her until tomorrow morning.
If you are working for hours and hours on a project you have to take a distance.
I took some photo's ( this will help too, also looking at it in the mirror) and I tell you: I looove her !

 It's funny, when I'm working on a animals head, there comes a point that you see it come to life and it's a strange feeling poking it with a needle :-)

  2. Hi Helen! So the animals you make, like your owls and the wonderful deer above, are they completely needle felted?

  4. Hi Sarah ! I first sew a form out of felt, a bit rough, and stuff it with wool. Then I needle felt over it and because of the wool stuffing I can shape it as well.
