Introducing "Timothy" -- an artist-made, ONE-OF-A-KIND, needle felted sculpture.

Timothy is a friendly little tri-color mouse who's looking for a home. He has a sweet and inquisitive expression, he's just the right size for sitting in your hand, and he's extremely well behaved. : )

Timothy will arrive at his new home carefully packaged, insured, and with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. He also comes with "papers" -- a special Q of Q card that includes his picture, care instructions, and information about materials and creation. The card is hand-signed and dated by the artist, which makes Timothy even more collectable.

I crafted Timothy entirely by hand, using no kits, molds, or patterns. I create each of my designs by looking at real animals, studying pet or wildlife photographs, then adding a touch of whimsy and imagination. Each one is unique and there will never be another one just like it!

As with most of my creations, I needle-sculpted the basic shape of this critter from Eco-wool*. I did the finishing work on Timothy (coloring, facial details, etc.) in New Zealand corriedale and fine merino. Finally, I gave him whiskers and cute little ear tufts of kid mohair.

Timothy has black glass eyes. He has wires inside his legs and tail for added support and shape. Aside from that, he is made from 100% natural fibers.

Timothy is a bit larger than the average mouse, measuring about 4.5 inches long from nose to rump. His long pink tail is another 3.75 inches. From toes to nose, he's about 3 inches tall.

All my pieces are very firmly sculpted. This means the wool is worked extensively with felting needles until the fibers form a tightly compressed, solid object. Consequently, the surface is soft, but the sculpture isn't squishy like the average plush toy or beanie. This construction allows me to shape the features with great precision -- and it also means your collectible work of art will retain its shape and features for years to come!
