Working on my wolfs head in between


I need a bit of variety and so i took my wolfs head off the shelf and the fur out of the cupboard and cut the parts together.

At first i was thinking i make him a dogsbody, but as this wish didn’t come true now for 3 month, it was time to change my mind.


Here is the huge pile of cut pieces of fur


and i think … laid out like this, it might come along alright

A witch head – a huge problem


Now i want to make a witch head – as shown in a video tutorial from Kay Petal.
That’s how the head should look, and what i have before my eyes how it should look like :


and this is how it does look like … not sooo bad, but not at all like i want it to be


sooooo i just started over again with the eggs … to be on the save side, i made 2 of them :D and now i go and work it again … i want a witch like the one in the first picture !

New project – new head – a witch ?


Today i started to work on a new head.
It does  NOT look like i wanted it, but I think its some sort of ok ….

Santa is born


today i worked on my Santa’s clothing.
first i thought i should make pictures in his boots and pants … but i got carried away, and now he is all dressed, bearded and hatted :D

The little guy is 20 cm tall, got blue felted eyes and wears no underwear.

I still need to get rid of all the fussy hairs all over him – no finishing at all yet, but i do like the little man a lot already.



Don’t you think he should hold a cup of grog ? I feel like he looks a little bit drunk :D
And the wonky eye doesn’t look so bad anymore.
