Had a small cosy class of five today. They were fantastic and worked really well, so much so that they all completed their dogs ahead of time. I think they all enjoyed themselves and they were inspired to source more wool and make some more. Really makes teaching a pleasure!

This is Nicky the Boxer's FeltPet sculpture.
This is what happened when Nicky's sibling decided to have a chew and play with the mini Nicky. The ears were ripped off, and the the surface was quite roughed up.
The owners tried to repair the damage with glue, which is not recommended, as the glue just seeps into the wool. I had to remove quite a chunk of wool from the head! (see the pic on the right). The ears I could not salvage either as they were stiffened with glue.
This is the repaired FeltPet sculpture.
That's why I say that these miniatures are not toys for pets!
