Here is the squirrel I needle-felted for my Dad for Christmas. He has newly become a squirrel collector. Somehow my needlefelting supplies wound up in my suitcase on our trip to my folks' for Christmas. It started out as a running squirrel, but looked terrible, so he turned into a sitting squirrel and is much happier. Its Icelandic wool and about 6" tall. Now I know that most squirrels are grey, but that's ok. Maybe the next one will be grey.
Its one of my first animals and was much fun. Thanks to the felters list for sharing ideas !!! And to Kathy Barger for inspiration as well : )
