Hamlet & two tiny bears!

Hamlet, a custom order piggy I’ve been working on for what feels like ages..is finally finished and well on his way to his new home! Now I’ve got two more little bears in the works! I hope to get them done and in the shop by the end of the week! Tweet This Post Stumble […]


Another bear in the works!

Someone is starting to emerge…. And someone is telling me it’s late and way past his bedtime! So funny this studio partner of mine! He’s the sweetest laziest thing, but makes the worst late night studio companion. He makes it until about 10:30 and is ready to call it a night! He then proceeds to […]


New bear!

Whew! Today is flying by! I have a new bear completed…he’s a larger size than the last group I made, measuring in at approximately 10 inches tall. I made him a simple pom-pom “scarf” from some leftover wool yarn I had. I love making pom-poms. They come out so much nicer looking than the ones […]


Wow…it’s been a while…

alrighty! so it’s been quite awhile since i’ve updated this thing…but i guess that tends to happen when you wind up chasing an almost one & 1/2 year old around alllllll day! not to mention, sneaking in creative time & trying to keep up with all the daily who-ha of chores,bills, & all that wonderful […]



 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 […]


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 […]


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 […]



 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 […]


maggie as outsider!

 okay….it took me forever to make this funky lil’ pug puppy for a friend of mine’s mom! it was actually supposed to be a christmas gift, but it’s looking a bit more “happy st. patty’s day” to me! …..& this my friends, is why i try not to do commission work! i just seem to […]


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!
