Of course I jumped at the chance, another challenge.
I had in my head a traditional cocker spaniel like this
So when I asked for some photos I was a bit surprised to see these.
I did get quite a few photos but I knew I was going to have my work cut out with this felt!
I had never done a long haired dog before and had no idea which wool to use.
Some of my lovely friends on a needle felting forum on face book helped me out and even sent me some from the USA!
I started with a wired frame and covered it with with core wool.
Then I covered with a base brown wool.
I decided to use these two pictures of him and due to the different lighting I choose and average of the colouring.
This is how he turned out.
The new owner was delighted! Im so glad a did it, at one point I wondered if I would ever manage it
What do you think!
