Sleepy kitten, at last I might be a little happier with the shape of this kitten (cat). It takes me a while to consider whether something is right or not I’m afraid. He’s quite small measuring 2 inches. Needle felted from 21 micron merino wool top, with posable with wired limbs and tail.
I had a go at making polymer noses to see how that would work with the needle felting. I did spend quite a few evenings trying to work out how to make them, and be useable. This is one of the first noses I have used, it’s ok but I have to iron out a couple of techniques.
The hardest thing about working so small is that I can’t get rid of all the stray fibres, this makes photography difficult.
This kitten is so tired, and frequently falls asleep. Who knows what he gets up to when we’re not watching.
After looking for places to do so he has found that the basket made from the pattern on squirrel picnics blog is ideal. As I talked about in my previous post.
Thank you Jennifer, I think he looks quite comfy, don’t you?
