One day I decided my needle felted deer was in need of some woodland friends. I like to put a branch in a small jar filled with salt for a woodland scene. So I created a little wool squirrel and, soon after, a tiny wool cottontail bunny to go with the deer and tree.
The miniature wool woodland family keeps growing as I have added a chipmunk and a raccoon.
My tiny animals are made mostly of natural, alpaca fiber which is very soft.
Making tiny needle-felted animals is very enjoyable and a different challenge than my larger creations as I try to create as much as detail as possible in a very small space. The chipmunks and squirrels even have wire frames which allow their arms and tail to be posed.
This needle felted donkey was a custom order and I love him so much that I would like to make some tiny horses and a unicorn. His mane and tail is made of super soft llama fiber.
I hope you enjoy my littles as much as I do!
