Needle Felted Spaniel Now Available

A while back I needle felted the head of one of my favourite breeds of dog, the Springer Spaniel. I was so pleased with how he ended up and he has since featured in quite a few of my Youtube tutorials including ‘How to make Realistic Needle Felted Dog Eyes’ and ‘How to Needle Felt Wavy/Curly fur’. I am sure you may have seen this loveable floppy eared pooch by now 🙂

Well, he is now available to a good forever home!!

  • He will come as a head and shoulders portrait in a frame so you can put him on your wall or on a shelf.
  • As his new owner you will be able to name him and decide on the colour of his soft material collar and whether you would prefer a light or dark frame for him.

Maybe you love spaniels or have a friend or family member who loves them as much as I do and would love to provide a new home for him. I will really miss seeing those big soppy eyes around the place but I just don’t have the space to keep all my felted animals long term.

As with all my needle felted animals he is not a toy but a wool sculpture to be admired and cherished. So please don’t pull at his ‘fur’, get him wet or try to brush him. Please keep him somewhere safe and away from pets and small children. Thank you

Ralph the Needle Felted Guinea Pig

I recently had the privilege of needle felting a guinea pig in memory of a beautiful real one called Ralph.

I made his basic shape from core wool, made some cute little feet by wrapping wool over wire and then added long fur which was a mix of merino tops and baby alpaca tops. Wow you should feel those baby alpaca fibres, they are so soft and slightly silky to the touch. I really enjoyed working with them.

His colours were not the easiest to replicate as in some lights he looked more of a peachy colour and in others he looked more like a light mustard colour but I’m quite pleased with the outcome. He has some beautiful tones don’t you think?

His eyes, ears, nose and mouth are all wool too!

As with all my creations I really tried to add as much detail as possible and to get him looking as realistic as I could.

The main aim with pet sculptures is to capture the character of the real one. The real Ralph had the most gorgeous smiley mouth and a sparkle in his eye

I’m so pleased his new mummy loves him and though of course the real Ralph can’t be replaced I hope this wool version will bring some comfort 🙂

I hope you like him.

If you would like to know how I needle felted his sweet feet you may like to watch this video of how l needle felt rodent feet, there’s a demo of a guinea pig foot, a rat foot and a mouse foot too! Enjoy 🙂
