Announcement   I'VE OPENED A SECOND SHOP here on Etsy! For items with a little more edge, please check it out: DEADutantesandCo.etsy.com

NEEDLE FELTING is an old art form that involves taking wool and poking it with a barbed needle until it starts to take form. It's taken me several years to hone my skills and I hope you like what you see!

Each creation takes hours of love and devotion and is truly one-of-kind. I believe in PRETTY packaging, CUTE things, and a PLEASANT shopping experience.

I hope something here makes you smile. Thank you for stopping by!

My mom has one of the original wood box but it fell apart. So I was excited to see this replica. Only complaint- one of the screws came out during the shipment...but easy fix. Thank you :)

About

Obsessed With All Things Cute

When I first saw a needle felted creation in a magazine, I was amazed, curious, and HAD to know what it was all about! I hunted down the felting needle and the wool roving and immediately created my first mouse and I have been hooked ever since. I have always loved crafts and art and other creative ways to express my muse, but sculpting is the art form that I have stuck with and dedicated myself to learning, may it be wool or polymer clay. I created my Etsy shop in 2010 and have been adding to my Menagerie ever since!

What I love the most about Etsy is the feedback from customers and the friends that I have made. It's a community of like-minded people who love art, who make art, and who live art!

Welcome Friend!

Needle Felting is an old art form that involves take wool roving and sculpting it with a barbed needle. I have worked several years to hone my craft and I hope you like what you see!

I live in the USA and every one of my creations are handmade by me from my own designs.

Please take a moment to visit my Menagerie and perhaps...if only for a moment, travel back to your childhood when a wee wide-eyed animal could capture your heart and make you smile.

Welcome to my Menagerie!
