Mini Sophie Felted Cat: in memory of Real Sophie

Sophie. πŸ–€πŸ€

The most beautiful and sweet loving soul inside a fluffy black and white fur suit and with the most green eyes you ever did see. πŸˆβ€β¬›

She had epilepsy her whole life but no illness she went through would stop her from being a snuggly cuddle bug and loving her under the chin rubs.

She was the sunshine cat! And perfect girl! She truly surpassed her 9 lives and was so determined and strong until she could be strong no more. πŸ˜ͺ

How do you mend a heart that is broken from the loss of such a dear cat? πŸ’”

Sweet Sophie belonged to my sister and she meant so much to me too as I cared for her like my own whenever her mum needed me to.

Sophie is sorely missed everyday as she has left the biggest pawprint on our hearts and we’ll remember her always. 🐾

It was a privilege to have time with my sister recently to complete a mini Sophie together out of wool in memory of real Sophie. My sister did so well being an absolute beginner in needle felting! πŸ™Œ

I think together we’ve captured Sophie’s sweet features such as her green eyes, her slim build, her cute white paws (one full white and one half white at the front), some black and some white whiskers (made of horsehair and real cat whiskers).

Mini Sophie will be treasured always just like the real one πŸ–€πŸ€

Have you ever made your own needle felted cat in memory of a real loved one?


Needle Felted Cat Head – Short Fur Tutorial

Are you needle felting a cat with short fur? or a long haired cat that has shorter furred areas?

This is part two in my series of Needle Felted Cat Head tutorials as demonstrated on a Tabby Birman sculpture!

I’ll teach you how to blend colours by layering wool and reverse felting. There’s also some planting of longer strands and trimming…

You’ll be adding short fur to the bridge of the nose, the cheeks, whisker pads, chin and around the eyes. I’ll also share my technique for whisker dots πŸ™‚

So here is the video on needle felting short fur:

The next part (three) for needle felting long fur on your cat is here.

Part four for felting cat ears is here.

Part five on whiskers is here.
