Wow! This was quite a needle felting task – seven hours of poke, poke, poke. But it was worth it because I think she turned out pretty cute.
Now I need to decorate her. I’m planning Swarovski red and green crystals topping the tips of her antlers, a bow with bell for her neck, and a gorgeous beaded and embroidered blanket in red, white, and gold. I’d like to also add leg wraps but I’m in a bit of a quandry as to what to make them from.
The only thing I wish I had done differently was to make her antlers a bit more delicate. Next time… Also, as a potential improvement, next time I’ll try wrapping the armature with wool felt and see if the felting sticks better to it.
