meet mr fox – in felt

Hello Mr Fox!

Here is Mr Fox going for a drive. And below he sits on our gate post as the horses do a good job of mowing our driveway.

He’s such a happy little fellow. Mainly cause I gave him a little grin when I needle felted him.

My what big ears you have Mr Fox!

Here I was ridiculing the Fox Eradication Program… They spent millions of dollars to eradicate every single fox in the state. 
Well, it worked! I’ve never seen a fox, have you?
Oh! Wait! There’s one!

Perhaps they were right… there were ARE foxes in Tasmania!

needle felted rat-like creature

I’ve been looking at a lot of incredible needle-felted animals on Pinterest lately. Some people are so talented! The expressions, the realistic shapes…

I decided to make my own little dressed up mouse. Its been a while since I made a needle-felted animal. I love working with felt but I’m not exactly consistent.

I had planned to make a mouse but he looks a bit more like a rat. Not to worry. He’s still cute.

I needle felted him entirely, except for the white collar on his little orange vest, and his yellow bow tie. 

His eyes are needle felted, with a little white twinkle highlight. I stitched his nose and mouth with black thread.

I had these little metal shavings in my shed… I don’t know what they’re from, I found them on the ground when we took a load to the tip last year. Hard to see in the photos, but they look like little flowers to me. I made a little stem and leaves out of wire and gave them to my little rat-like creature to hold.

Yep. He looks cute in his perpetual grovelling, apologetic, flower-offering stance.
