I have been absolutely dying to share this but had to wait until after Christmas since it was a gift. I needle felted a portrait of my aunt's dog, George Clooney!
This was a pretty ambitious undertaking... My only other needle felting experience was years ago, when a friend and I made skunks from a kit. I really had no idea if I could do it until I did, and I was so pleased with the results!
George Clooney is a sharpei-low-rider mix, and he is unbelievably charming. He has one sassy leg that turns out and the cutest wrinkles. This project took me a ridiculous number of hours to complete, but I had so much fun making it! I definitely want to have more adventures in needle felting very soon, when I can find the time. I am dying to immortalize my own pups next, and I'm already dreaming of little dioramas.
