All about dogs, cats and cute animals

A couple years ago I accidentally stumbled across a TV show introducing needle felting and have fallen in love with this craft since. Seattle's rainy weather gives me lots of indoor craft time.

I have always enjoyed arts and craft. My previous sketching and sewing experiences are helpful to construct lifelike mini animals. It is critical to make adorable face expression, as you can see from my critters.

I hope my mini versions bring joy and fond memory to people's minds. Thanks for visiting!

    I have been trying to recruit my teen daughter to help me. So far no luck. Therefore this is still a one-person shop.

Frequently asked questions
Can you tell me how you go about doing custom pets?

Please send me photos first then I can give you an accurate quote, or if I am a good fit for your project. I specialize in long or curly haired pets. I do not do short haired dog like bulldogs.
Most dogs are between $165 to 198; cats $99 to 140.
I will send you a link for payment after I collect enough photos from you.

Thanks!

Your items shows "One in Stock", can you ship it right away?

All items are made-to-order so I do not have any in stock. Etsy made sellers to list at least one for each item, hence the confusion.
Depending on the number of my orders, it will take 6 to 12 weeks to ship. It just takes lots of time to felt one. Thank you for your patience!

The only exceptions will be marked "ready-to-ship", please read the item description. Thank you!

How do I send pet photos to you?

You can send photos by Etsy message/convo. Etsy allows 3 photos per message so you might have to send multiple messages by adding to the thread. I prefer this communication because this keeps transaction information in one place.

If you are tech-challenged, please message me to get my email address.

How many photos do you need for a customized figurine? What kind of photos should I send?

Below are the general photo guidelines:

-Please send me 5 to 10 color photos, including your pet's face close-up from different angles (front AND PROFILES), and both body sides so I see markings correctly. Lastly a photo taken from back so I see its back head, rump and tail.
Also include a couple photos of the particular pose you choose, so I see how it sits / stands.
- At least one or two photos should be taken in natural outdoor daylight to show its true colors. Indoor light gives yellow tint and can be misleading.
- Please do NOT send me a lifetime of photos, only send photos taken in your favorite year and look. Puppies and full-grown dogs look very different to me.
- No grainy photos that I can't see details of your pet.

How long is the turnaround time?

Depending on my order list, it is usually 5 to 12 weeks. Each pieces takes hours of handwork to ensure quality. I appreciate your patience!

Do you felt with real fur?

No, I do not felt with real fur. But I can fill the wool replica core with your pet's fur to make it extra special.
Because my felted animals are very small, the core is narrower than an inch, just a pinch of fur will do. Please clean and wash your pet's fur before mailing.
