Some people are hard to surprise. I bet you can do it with this needle felted wool sculpture of a very cute Pug. Imagine the surprise when the box is opened! A sweet little needle felted wool sculpture. Totally handmade with the finest wool fiber.

This one has a home but serves as a good example of the breed. My son and daughter in law rescued this one from a very bad situation. "Big Al" now has his forever home. Even with a very difficult start to life, Big Al has returned to the wonderful dog Pugs are known to be.

I use a variety of wool in my creations, utilizing what is necessary to best portray the breed I am working on. No artificial parts, I create totally with wool. I can best get the facial expressions I want that wouldn't be possible with glass eyes and plastic noses. I do use a wire armature to sculpt over as it adds a life long stability to the piece. While all soft sculptures can be posed I don't advise doing so. Each "poke" with the barbed needle creates a stitch. You can loosen the stitches over time with repetitive movements. Just lightly bounce a needle felted ball, dry method, off a wall a few times then check for firmness. It's likely to feel a bit looser then when you started. So, if you have a special pose you would like for your piece just let me know and I can put it in any position you prefer. Gentle movement won't affect the piece, but repositioning a piece will over time.

Big Al is 5 inches long from his chest to his hind quarters. He stands 4 inches at the withers and is 2 3/4 inches wide at the chest. I don't like to rush a piece so I prefer about a week to create a sculpture. If there is a true need for a shorter turn around just let me know.
