More Dogs

So, the fluffy little Milly inspired me to make another fluffy dog: a Shetland sheepdog. this is the first animal (except a dragon before) that I made its mouth open.

Small details give the final look to the whole figure. More of this Shetland Sheepdog For sale. The third and the last dog for now is a cute black dachshund (badger dog). I like her nor less than little Milly (I have to admit, it was sad to send her away). She's sitting on the top of my desk and It's incredibly hard to make a good photo of woolen things and it's particularly nasty to have photos of the black ones!

I tried very hard and...  :)                                                More of the little Milly The customer was happy (and so was I :)). The pictures of the beautiful dog called Milly and her little "sister" are published by the kind permission of their owner. But that isn't the end of the story! :) Once started needle-felting my favori
