Woodland creature

Hey there! Check out this little felted creature I made! I used some really lovely hand dyed wool my friend Kate Richbourg gave to me. I sculpted her face from polymer clay, then cast it and made resin copies to paint. The process is pretty fun. I haven't decided what to do  next with her, maybe add hooves, or beading. 

Working with fiber has taken my full attention lately. I just can't get enough! I've sewn several garments, woven a couple more teeny linen twine baskets and collected alpaca wool to make doll wigs. I think I'm going to do some embroidery now.

Cynthia, look at the giveaway I have going on through Wednesday! It is a new book by Aimee Ray! Aimee Ray is awesome at embroidery and her new book is also about jewelry, plus felting and embroidery.
I love your woodland girl. I will have a photo up on Sunday of a Blythe middie wearing an Aimee Ray enbroidered, felted headband with a bird's nest on it! Her Etsy store is called LittleDeer--
xox jean LOVE your work as always!
