Guess what this is meant to be

I have recently been starting a hobby of felting to carry me through the winter. This is my first attempt at a 3D object, and as you can see it's not great, but at least I've got something that vaguely resembles what I intended to......

Now what do you thing it may be ???

p.s. Sorry it is on its side, which I don't seen able to amend

  • Is it a mouse ? thanks to an earlier post of yours I decided to try needle felting myself. I am really enjoying it but need to learn that my fingers don't like the needle..... your picture is really cute. and thank you for the suggestion of a new hobby which is light weight enough not to hurt my hands and wrists, x

  • Really Trish, did you only start when I mentioned it ? Oh my word, and you have such super little bears as your avatar, did you make them ?? If so we will have to have virtual felting lessons methinks :-)

  • Yes they were my first trial at felting. I decided my 4 grandchildren could have little felt pets as part of the 24 gifts I need to make for each of them for advent calendars( I made the calendars last year), I really need to get going . I found felting advice on utube.

    Your little animal is fab, looking again it is a rabbit his face is very expressive, well done sorry I guessed wrong firstly,(note to self put glasses on before checking emails).look forward to seeing your next creations. x

    Again thanks for the suggestion of felting.

  • Well done you a mouse lovely I made some very strange things at the . Beginning my daughter had trouble not l laughing. Xxgin

  • :-( Oh dear, it truly is bad then.......not a mouse ! :-(

  • And the first prize goes to........... haribo :-) :-) a years supply of virtual Curly Wurlys coming your way :D :D We'll done and thank you, I really thought I'd mucked it up so much that it hardly looked like anything recognisable !! ;-)

  • Darn it too late again

  • Awwwww sorry my friend, did you think was a wabbit too ? ((Zeb))

  • kinda and thought if you'd attached a bushy tail it might have been a squirrel

    xx

  • It had started life as a kitten actually , but morphed as I went wrong into a wabbit, but yes, a slight adjustment and it could easily be a squirrel :D :-)

  • I knew straight away that it's a Wabbit! it's lovely :)

  • Aww thank you soooo much, the bunny can hop so hopefully Zeb will regain her boing tomorrow :D :D

  • I think he/she is so cute it doesn't matter what it is. To me it looks sweet and cuddly, ideal for small hands of kiddies. They will let it be whatever they want it to be - if that makes sense. Well done you for trying something positive during the rather bleak days of Winter.

  • Aww thank you Lizzy, it's silly isn't it but I'm so proud that I actually got it to look vaguely like something proper, albeit not the kitten I started off with, but the wabbit that evolved. I've also tried some wet felting, but need to refine that. I suddenly realised hat I should have tried to make it much bigger, that would probably have been easier, but I think I do everything small, my handwriting is tiny.........maybe I've missed my vocation, I should go into nano-technology ..... Hehehehe :-)

  • I think its a wabbit and I have done felting and yours looks amazing x

  • Oooooooww matrix! how kind you are, it was my very first attempt, so I have got improve. Have you done wet felting as well, that is my next task though I have done two attempts at flat needle felting. I would love to hear what you do and any hint and tips would be very greatly appreciated :-)

  • No credit goes where credit is due .I went to a class to do it and there were girls there who did wet felting but as it needed strength in arms and I don't have that.If you have a go show us please as would love to see it .Have seen it in a demo and it looks amazing ,also you can buy machine that felts and so you can apply to anything with your felting .x

  • Oh thank you matrix, too kind :-) i did see a machine for feltingm but as I have hardly come to terms with an electric sewing machine, preferring to use my mothers old Singer hand one hehehe, methinks a. it's a bit beyond me and b. It's very pricey, so I think I will stick to trying it manually. But thanks anyway and if I get something half decent, I will show you :-) !!

  • Did you see it on create and craft ?i think it was about £150 I suppose if you are not doing it to sell then that may be too much .The one I saw looked really easy to use its not like using a sewing machine.I just got back from my craft morning and made a little needle holder by sewing .I don't get out much but thought I would try today .xx

  • Oh well done you matrix :-) very satisfying isn't it when we achieve things. I think the ones I saw were in the region of £300 so that was way out of my price bracket. I'm certainly nt doing them to sell, it's just purely something to keep me occupied during the winter ahead, it's pretty addictive though isn't it :-) :-)
