New York Times Feature

Look closely enough and you’ll see one of my bears has photobombed this gorgeous picture! Seriously though, what a pleasure it was to be part of The New York Times T: Style Magazine’s feature on felted animals. It’s exciting to see needle felting getting mainstream publicity as more than a craft but a valid art form!

Needle Felted Giraffe

Colossal asked me to time-lapse my next make for their Instagram story, something I’ve been meaning to do for a while but put off due to the fact that sitting at a desk for the entire process (several long days for this chap, bleedin’ spots!) is far from my usual modus operandi! Normally I flit from room to room trailing more fluff than my cat Jarvis in full-on moult mode. Anyway, I made it through and only faultered at the final hurdle when it came to fixing the giraffe to the tricycle and sewing him a neck ruff. Enjoy!

Funny Little Cats

When I started needle felting the first thing I made were animals of the feline variety. This was naturally because I am cat obsessed, like a lot of us are, and I wanted to capture in wool a particular character they have which you might recognise!

I know, I know, but as a CATerpillar he insisted he has every right to be here, so who are we to argue?
