Needle-Felted Kitty

Just finished this needle-felted cat for a commission:

The cat is 100% wool and needle-felted all the way through. It took a long time because of its size: 10 inches. That doesn’t seem so big but when you’re poking tiny needles to get the wool to felt, it takes a really long time.

The scarf and eyes are also needle-needle felted; the scarf for the look and pattern and the eyes for safety, since it’s going to be a gift for a young child.

Overall, I’m satisfied with the result of being understatedly cute not over-the-top cartoony. Hopefully, the recipient will like too.

I made a needle-felted kitty. It looks black in the pictures but actually it’s a very dark charcoal. The eyes are hand-painted glass cabochons and the limbs are movable and string-jointed. It’s the first “jointed” stuffie that I made. I’ll probably experiment with more jointed systems. Overall I think I’m satisfied with the way it turned out.

A little story about this bear-piglet: in German there is a term called Innerer Schweinehund. It means “inner pig-dog” which is equivalent to “inner devil” or personal demons. I thought would be funny to make different personifications of hybrid animals in little stuffie form.

This little bear-piglet is the first stuffie I ever made, fully crocheted with pure wool and needle felted. The eyes are handmade.

I thought I would make a toy for the miniature bear.  I wanted to make a really simple felted stuffie, it turned out to be a rabbit but the scale was a bit off. To fit the bear, the bunny would have to be smaller even though it already is quite small.
