Posts Tagged ‘custom felting projects’

…And I just shipped out my last holiday order of the season! Now time to start on holidays 2K11… ; )

I’ve been working on some really great custom orders, people have such great ideas! Lots of dogs – I’m thinking of creating some figurines of popular breeds, to A) get more experience creating dog figurines and B) have a collection of dog figurines by breed available in my Etsy shop! Dog lovers unite!! Nothing against the kitties though – I’m creating a cat figurine for a friend right now, actually! Photos of her to come in the near future.

My boyfriend Greg’s favorite dog figurine I’ve made so far is this little cocker spaniel ornament – it’s modeled after a customer’s coworker’s dog (she was giving it to her as a holiday gift, which I was so psyched to be a part of!):

And then here are some pet figurine ornaments, created for a wonderful return customer – with these guys, I tried to make their fur look fluffier to mimick the breed (Bichon Frise) while still maintaining a sturdy structure.

You can’t really tell in the photos but I was pleased with how the eyes came out – I’ve been really working on more realistic animal eyes, and I think including little white flecks to mimick a reflection (while avoiding a cataract-like look!) makes the difference.

If you have photos of custom pets you’ve created for people, please do share! I’d love to see what others are working on!
