I was in the mood to needle felt, but didn’t know what I wanted to make. We’ve had a cutest stray cat visit a few nights (but not the past few) so I settled on a cat.
I choose a variegated orange wool roving from my stash and got to work.
I added brown embroidery floss for whiskers and between the nose and tongue.
I still have a lot to learn and skills to hone in on, but I’m happy with how it turne out. I really am pleased with the ears.
Thanks for looking!
Thanks. He kinda reminds me of a young Simba
What a cute little guy.
He does look like Simba
He’s tiny and purr-fectly adorable!
I really want to learn to felt! He’s a cute little orange boy whom I imagine to be up to no good! My former orange cat was never not up to hijinks. It just wasn’t in his nature to behave🥰
It looks great! I still haven’t tried felting something 3D. My sister has and makes some awesome stuff, but I find it daunting. You can make a bunch of kitty pals in all sorts of colors!
Cute kitty! Needle felting is one of those crafts that seems like it would be hard to do, especially on such a small scale. Like, I can’t understand how you get into all the nooks and crannies in small areas like the neck.
You make many pieces separately then felt them together, so the head was a ball, the body was separate, and both sets of legs were logs I folded and felted to the body.
Ah! That makes more sense to my brain.
Congratulations!! Your Felted Cat is one of this week’s Featured Projects!
Yep, the ears are sweet. You chose a nice color and shape.
