Mousy Python & the Holey Snail, Needle Felting





Too icky outside to get proper photos. I want to redo the “chainmail cowl” given that I was working with defective needles.
These are now officially my son’s favorites.

I don’t remember the snail from the movie ( :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:), but I love his curvy shell.

Thank you everyone!!!

This is one of those projects that sort of grew as it went along. Snail was the last part because I was looking for something that would rhyme with grail, but would be more “logical” for a mouse world.

I discovered the need for a very large popup mouse background book for when I have to take photos inside. Just open the book and tada we’re in a forest, or hanging out in a field with a castle in the distant background - whatever the need. Then, when the photoshoot is completed, close the book and put it away. Instead I just had some fiber packaging forms.

Got knitting needles today so I will redo the chainmail cowl and hope to get some better photos! :mouse: :mouse: :snail: :coconut:

My husband is a huge Monthy fan and thought these were great.

This is a brilliant spiral-bound book idea - just a bunch of scenes and backdrops to prop open and stand up, either for miniature photography or as settings for dolls, storytelling, and the like.

Though the background you created really did work perfectly! I didn’t even notice what it was!

In my previous studio, I had a canvas printed up of a copyright free landscape image that was very subtle/misty to use as a background on some shots. That was a nice thing to have. Of course that was all lost. I had a very nice photograph set up directly behind my work table which was ideal when I was creating classes and needed to photograph all the steps involved.

I don’t have that anymore, but my son and his friends (who love to play rpg & board games) recently installed this H U G E table into the living room (5.5’ x 11’ and standing height - was a work table for a leather worker or something of the sort) which I used for these photos. The lighting we have in the living room worked a lot better than I anticipated.

It may be time to haul out my better camera & tripod and see how that works.

Got new knitting needles so I can redo the cowl today and cook a turkey. :wink:

I think I might die of cuteness overload! They’re perfect! I love Monty Python and you captured it beautifully. The snail is a nice touch, too. It reminds me of medieval books - the margin illustrations used to often include knights fighting snails.
