I am having a ridiculously fun time with my daughters dollshouse and my new Instagram advenure, it has led me to make a wedding dress for a maid, a fancy dress for the little girl, a new gown for the lady of the house and a work jacket and apron for the handy man.
A friend looked at the story and came up with the idea of the family dog stealing the joint of meat from the kitchen … well, I have the miniature joint of meat but realised I would need a bone for that is all that will be left when the culprit is caught.
Oh and the only dog my daughter had was a porcelain one. To make the story more interesting I wanted a pose-able dog… so I am having a go at felting one.
I have all the equipment from my recent felting endeavours and found this ‘how to‘ on the internet and so here I go….
To begin you need a lump of fluff which you then stab over and over and over to matt the fibres and start to shape into whatever you’re making. I definitely need more practise but for my purposes I think Dog looks sufficiently dog-like :-
this and further blobs of fluff turned into:-
I stabbed away and joined the pieces together by added more of the wool fibres…
Then I added some eyes and some darker patches on his body…
and that was my Dog finished… here he is in situ at the Littleton’s. His arrival does cause quite a stir..
I’ll be back soon,
