I got a request from a woman through my Etsy shop to make her a custom needle-felted ornament that looks like their beloved, but sadly, departed cat, Calvin. This is the result. It was a bit tricky because it’s small – 4 1/2″ from the tip of his nose to the base of his tail. That means that it’s more difficult to do the details that would make this little guy recognizable as Calvin.
I finished Calvin yesterday, listed him my Etsy shop, and notified Angela that her Calvin was ready. The note I received from her when she bought him touched my heart. She said she cried tears of joy to see Calvin again. This is what it’s all about – sharing the love of animals.
