Needlefelt


I've been needlefelting again after a long break =) But that's how I do things.. makes a lot, then take a break and do some other material. That's the great thing about miniatures, they can be done in lots of different materials =)

I started doing one mouse for a girl I know from a forum at Facebook, and I got hooked and made one for myself too =)

(This is how it goes when you stick your head inside the glue bottle to long, just look at the little one in the back... He's OK now! Just look beneath ;) )

Then I wanted to give her something more, and she asked for more mice =) So I ended up doing 4 mice for her and 1 for me, then I got real tired of mice for awhile ;) And my poor doll didn't seem to like the invasion.... ;)
She did calm down later.. But it's not easy having mischievous mice everywhere.. They tickle a lot!


I chose to make them more or less in one piece. That way I didn't have to attach lots of small pieces like legs, arms and nose. But I made the tail and ears (and the pink part of the nose) later.

Stared of with the head, I just formed it into a round shape and like a cone for the nose. Just keep punching the needle trough the wool until you like the shape =)

Then the arms..

.. and the legs
If the legs feel a bit thin, like mine did, just add some more wool.

Then I made the tail, rolled it hard and punched with the needle and attached it on the body.
And I forgot to photograph the ears.. I made small flat "balls" and attached them like the tail. And a small pink ball on the nose and inside the ears. And small eyes from black wool.



Is it cute or what! =) I got a cute guinea pig from her.

Take care!

  7. Your mice are very small, it's a good idea to make them in one piece.
