current WIP’s

 i currently have just about 4 lil’ outsiders in the works! i figured i’d concentrate on the smaller ones, since at least that would give me some sort of feeling of completion amidst the crazy-ness that is this apartments current state! hopefully this weekend i’ll be able to organize what i’ve packed so it’s not […]


hey kitty!

 i know…i know…i was a very bad non-blog-posting girl! & i don’t even have a doodle for today! well, the truth is…i did make one…actually spent a bit of time on it, coloring it in…went to save it & poof! essentials just decided to shut itself down! yay! so i know better in my current […]



 my very first octopus! yay! i finished her up this morning & just added her to the shop ! she has an extensively needle felted face, but i kept the rest of her fairly simplistic….although i did have a strange urge to needle felt a little top hat for her, but i think that may be […]


that’s MR. PORKTINI, to you!

 yep…i said it. Mr. Porktini…..because what could be more weird than a “porktini”? maybe a plush Mr. Porktini? nah…the alchoholic kind are just plain freaky….& i’m not saying that simply because i’m a vegetarian…but pork..in your martini??? whatever happened to good ole green olives? geesh! oh well. this new little guy is number 57 in […]


abe the lion!

 yay! abe is finally complete! he’s number 56 in the lil’ outsiders series & is my first ever lion! this guy nearly made my arm fall off! i wound up needle felting his entire mane….including the back of his head! so needless to say he took me forever! anywhoot….this is going to be a truly […]


lion wip!

…and that is just the plain ol’ truth. i feel really odd….not really sick, but lazy like i have been the last few months (ugh! just when i thought i’d gotten my energy back!) and a mind full of mush. i think that’s what frustrates me most about this whole pregnancy thing…my mind is ten […]


kipper kitty!

 i am finally finished with #55….he is a mint greenish kitty made from a medium density mohair with a chocolate backing. i named him “mr. kipper kitty” after my hubby …who has a strange cat like tendencies to eat tons …and i mean tons of kippers! fortunately for me, he only eats them when he […]


organization (*gasp*)

today i thought i’d share one of my little tricks to keep my mohair samples organized. this works well for mohair or any kind of fabric, really.  i wound up using a moleskin journal that i never got around to drawing in (the comic strip style one)…and the seperated blocks in it make it perfect […]



 yay! giacomo giraffe is finally finished & up in the shop! & i’m pretty psyched about how he came out…since he’s my very first giraffe & all! plus when i was first roughing out the face in wool…he kinda looked like ALF! yep… that’s right…it was a hole i didn’t think i could dig my […]


Giraffe WIP

 well i finally seem to have enough energy to start another lil’ outsider! this time i decided i’d try a giraffe (thanx to all this lovely spotted mohair that i happen to have hiding in my stash!)…i’ve never made a giraffe before..so this oughtta be interesting. i sorta winged the pattern…so he may wind up […]


a note from 425sqftart….

i love to make odd little furry animals out of mohair & wool (among other numerous crafty projects!) Each piece is unique and one of a kind..painstakingly created over days! i do not normally do commission work, but hey if ya have any ideas throw 'em my way!
