Needle Felted Tarantula

This is how he started off.....just plain black wool over a pipe cleaner frame.

Then I added the coloured details and 8 plastic bead eyes. He's a gift for a friend.....not for sale.

Guitarist Jacket

Here's a jacket I made for a friend who's an excellent guitarist. This was the first time I have ever made a men's fitted jacket. The first one was a write off, so I purchased a BURDA pattern and made this one.

Here is the friend wearing the jacket

Is It Art?

I went to the auto wreckers with my boyfriend to get some parts, and I couldn't help notice all this interesting stuff on the ground. I knew I had to take this stuff home and do something with it. Here is the final piece that I have decided to call, "Driving In Toronto"

Needle Felted Dog I Made

This is the first time I've ever done a specific "pet portrait" type needle felting. The friend I made this one for has done me so many favours that I offered to make a miniature version of her dog who had passed away earlier this year. I only had a few photos for reference, but she was very happy with the result!
