I don't have any advice but I am glad that someone was paying attention when you wrote about these dogs not long ago! Good luck and I can't wait to see the result!

The instructions make it look 'easy'. We'll see!

I tried needle-sculpting _once_ - on a cloth doll - NO LUCK at all. Of course, the felt can cover up a lot of troubles such as I had on cloth.

Went to the site to see the large collection of "masterpieces" - I think she likes the Jack Russell terrier. :-) Of course, we do too since we have one. They were on the page labeled "Dog Sales" - but, I could not find any mention of cost there. I guess that if I really wanted that first one, I would have to email her to ask.

You have much more patience with handwork than I do. Looking forward to your results!

rj

I would suggest proper hand protection. A magnet to put the needles on, so they don't get flipped on the floor during tea breaks, etc. And find out what surface should be felted against, to protect yourself and your tabletop.

I can't wait to see your finished mini pooch. Bet it's better than my felted flat heart (I felted yarn with water, soap, and a needle inside a heartshaped cookie cutter).

Anji

Actually Cornflower needle felting doesn't take too long, compared to some of the other methods I have tried.. Have a hard board under your work and place it on a flat surface or a piece of foam. As you are working keep the needles straight as you are stabbing the fibre. I love Domenica's dogs and I am looking forward to seeing your finished dog.

Cornflower

I'm not sure exactly how the sales work but as far as I know (from a mutual friend) people 'bid' for the dogs they are interested in and then Domenica draws lots as she is so oversubscribed. They sell for hundreds of pounds and are in great demand - hence the fact that the latest lot shown on the website are sold out. I'm sure there must be some sort of mailing list system so that potential buyers can be notified when there's a new lot of dogs for sale. I'll try to find out more.

Cornflower

Many thanks, rj and Anji, for your good tips - I'll bear them in mind.

Boo

This is AWESOME!!! Can't wait to see the finished product! :)
