Literally! It is my favorite print I have and I collect prints when I can. The material used for this print is durable and it has a very nice texture to it, which makes the print look so cool. Thank you so much for this!

Howdy! Welcome to my shop and I hope you find great amusement in the things I make. I have a special place in my heart for the Pop Artist Claes Oldenburg, so, in a way, many of the items here are commentary in reverse. Instead of giant sculptures, I make tiny ones :) I have fun making these items and I hope that shines through with each item I sell.

Additional policies and FAQs
Quick FAQs:

Q: What are your needlefelted items made with?
A: Usually a combination of polyester sheet felt produced from recycled plastic bottles and wool roving from local shops. I distinguish the roving as "wool" and the polyster sheet felt as just "felt."Sometimes I feel goofy and I like to glue googly eyes to things.

Q: How long have you been needlefelting?
A: If memory serves me correctly, my girlfriend taught me how sometime around fall or winter of 2008- maybe the beginning of 2009? The first thing I made was from a kit she bought at Felt Club here in Los Angeles. It was a only a couple months before I joined etsy that I actually started making my own creations and getting into needlefelting- yay!

Q: There is a dog pictured on your banner but no sketch of it- what the?!
A: That was a friend's Great Pyrenees. I needlefelted him from 3 Facebook pictures and some googled images of breed examples. I generally freehand sculpt most of the items you see. I like to think of it as riffing in felt: you know, like a felt jam session. Every now and then, I get an idea to draw something and then make it.

Q: Why is your Etsy ID/shop called famished? Are you really that hungry?
A: I prefer to think of the shop as being called "Nguyening It!" Nguyen is my last name as the closest pronunciation is "win" and , yes, I usually am hungry.

Q: Will you restock some of the items that are no longer available?
A: If the demand is strong enough and time and supplies permit. Many of the items come about because I find specific colors that inspire the item. If you see something you like that is no longer available, please feel free to start a convo with me and I'll let you know if it can be done. Among the items to return are Yoda, Baby Death and Audrey II.

Q: Wait, you mentioned Facebook earlier- can I receive updates for your shop via facebook?
A: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Nguyening-It/340192536006196?ref=hl or follow me on twitter @NguyeningIt

Please ask about custom items and I'll see what I can whip up for you. Browse through my sold items to discover some of the items that have already been made. Most of the time, the limitation is one of supplies and not of imagination ;)
