Because I Needed A Break

After all the corset-making intensity of the last week, I needed a relatively quick, non-stressful project that wouldn't involve taxing my arms anymore. I still managed to prick myself a bit with the felting needle, but it's still much better than accidentally stabbing yourself with an awl.

Dawwww, look at that face!
He's rolling around on his back, hoping for a belly rub!
His big secret: that patch of white on his back is actually rabbit fur, from my friend Cindy's adorable bunny June!


There's not much to say about this addition to the felted cat hair family; it's still the same techniques, and of course, obligatory posing with the original!

Walnut cautiously inspects the new guy.
Poor neutered Walnut with the only progeny he will ever have. 

Some people will be pleased to know that there is no longer enough hair in the stash for another felted cat. Of course, Walnut is always shedding more...

Oh what, I have to interrupt my morning lounging in the sun to take more pictures with this guy?
Fine, let's get this over with. Is this pose similar enough for you?

I can destroy you with one paw, tiny doppelganger. Come on and fight me if you dare!

  6. My (youngest) son just asked if your cat was all naked since you are making tiny cats out of his fur. He was relieved to see pictures of Walnut still furry.

  13. So much squee! I love that you manage to get phosphate of Walnut in all the right poses each time. That belly is so snuggleable. And your needle felting is amazing.
