My first dinosaur is ready to go, now that I've finally built a display box! Winnifred the Stegosaurus is a 4"x3"x6" soft sculpture, needle felted from eco-fi felt and polyester fibers. Like all the Squshies, she is hand cut and has her own story. She is not hand sewn, as needle felting requires no thread, glue, or fasteners of any kind and is held together by friction alone =) can you tell I'm way too fascinated with needle felting?

Been finding some time to return to needle felting. Quite a while ago we cut out all the pieces I designed for a set of needle felted dinosaurs and I'm finally getting around to them. Working on perfecting my technique as well, these two went a lot faster than the previous ones. a little more work and I may actually have something to sell someday.

Bought a couplt packages of Sculpey and used some old stuff i had lying around with no labels (could be anything) but it still worked out just fine. Now I have a little figurine of the Squshie T-Rex design that I have yet to take out of prototyping and actually put on sale.
