Horses in Wool Needle Felting
Horsing around over here on Monday. This little filly is a needle felted project. I used several shades of the wool to give her a nice dappled look. She measures about 9" long, and 8 1/2" from her ears to her hoof. Her width is about 3". A nice solid little mare. With a soft and gentle spirit.
This little horse is a soft baby blue color, with a nice smattering of deeper blue spots, and a nice blue muzzle as well. All made of wool, needle felted. The mane and the tail are 100% wool cut and felted into place.
The challenge was getting it to rest in a comfortable position. It measures about 8" long, 4" tall, and 2 1/4" wide at the shoulders. It reminds me of the "My Little Pony" characters, but in a more realistic way anatomically.
A pleasant Monday to you. As we sing "Back in the Saddle, Again".
