I just added a few more creations to my Etsy page so I thought it would be a good thing to share them here also…
Last time, I shared this guy:
Well, now he has a mate and a little baby! Isn’t the baby adorable? She can nestle up to her mama and it looks like she is nursing. The adult Bunnies are around 5″ tall and the little one is about an 1 1/2 inches…. The parents both have their own personalities and I love the way the whole family looks together.
This mama and baby are a bit rustic but I still love the way she turned out. She has a bun in her hair and a beautiful green dress all made of wool and she even has underwear under that dress 😉
I need to get more comfortable in making humans though because there is something about the face that gets me. I see the attraction of doing Waldorf style dolls for that reason because they often don’t have a face.
I really like the way that these mice turned out but there was something about them that were not exactly what I wanted when I thought of what I wanted my mice to look like. I feel like these two belong together though. I have come to think of them as the twins… After having made my last set of mice, I am now thinking that they guyys may look more like rats. Though I am still not sure… what do you think?
I love how this Bird and nest came out. The bird is a perfect size for playing with and the eggs are so simple and look no natural in the nest. The nest itself is made from two different coloured wools and I just felted it until is came into shape. I have a feeling that there will be more like this in the near future…
Right after I made the bird and nest, I made these… it actually started with just one and then I decided to try to make an earring out of it. It was much simpler then I thought. Then of course I have to make another that looked exactly like it. Which worked out perfectly.
My last and latest creations are another set of mice. These were more what I was envisioning and I am so proud that they turned out the way they did! I started with one, which turned out to the be little one and then realized that he looked childish so of course he needed a parent. When I was done both of them, there was still something missing, so I started on the scarf and vest. Now they are perfect! The scarf is knitted on size 2mm needles using Fine (Sport or 2) woollen yarn and is just 8 tiny stitches across using the stockinette stitch. The vest is crocheted out of the same yarn using a size 2.5 hook. Aren’t they cute?!
It can and does take hours for these creations to come together but each one take on a life of its own and I love to do it.
Of course, if you have fallen in love with one of these little guys, check out my Etsy page!
