Felted Borzoi

I finally got around to trying my hand at felting a borzoi. This is about three inches tall. I spent the whole afternoon on it, and left it on the table for two minutes while I went to find some beads for eyes, and Tiara managed to steal it off the table and started chewing on it. Then I got it a bit wet, hoping for soft curls, and I ended up with frizz. How frustrating! I think it turned out OK, though. Still needs eyes - the beads weren't the right size.

Wow, this is really neat. It figures that the dog would want to eat it. I have saved hair from my long haired red tabbies and plan to do some needle felting with it. The nice thing is that the wool is free. I got the Silvercsmithing book and plan to do something with that once my body heals. Yes, it is still going on. My best to you.
