For my daughters birthday, I decided to needle felt a mini portrait sculpture of her boxer Bella.
This was my first attempt to create a free standing felted sculpture. I started with a pipe-cleaner skeleton covered with natural colored wool. Once I was satisfied with the proportions of the body, I added the colored wool to mimic the fur patterns.
The finished piece is about 4.5" by 6" high.
