The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

Made this ram. Really hard to get the long white alpaca fibers to felt. Real sheepskin wool would work better.

Darn ipad! Always posts upside down. Apple sucks!

here he is again, and my newest creation, inspired from Wallaby's photos of her Angora goat, Hazel. I just loved how the hair went down over her eyes. The white wool is, however, much harder to work with than typical white wool. I am not sure if it was lama fur or what, but I had a hard time getting it to actually "felt". I have discovered that using pipe cleaners as the superstructure of the legs is NOT good, as it prevents them from fully felting. Regular wire would be better.

I got a thing for goats. I should do something else, though. What?

What about animals in different echo systems? You could do jungle, safari, Arctic, etc.

These are so awesome! I especially like the appaloosas and the donkey

I say definitely buy a table at your local craft fair and I'm sure you'll make enough money all in one weekend to make it worth your while :)

Though I suppose if you were making them at a rate of $10/Hr you would roughly sell them for $50-$60 each to make it worth the time but if you enjoy doing it and customers enjoy them it may be worth it to sell them at a loss against your time spent.

If I were well off financially I would surely request one and keep it for a long time, they are very beautiful and unique.

Try a rabbit!

Great idea! The rabbit.

I cannot think of selling based on 10$ per hour. It may sound arrogant but I would rather keep them than sell @ 10$ per hour. Sorry, but my time is worth more than that.
