I did this little portrait today and I love it! Let me introduce you to Prince. I've talked a great deal about Mickey Blue Eyes because it seems like he's always into something and demanding attention. After all, he's only a year old.
Prince is our older dachshund. He's about 6 years old. We adopted him at 6 months old when his owner had to go to boot camp. Because Prince is older, he's quite content to sleep away the day, preferably buried under a quilt on the sofa. Mickey loves to torment him, bite his ears, and chase him around the house, and although Prince would deny it, I think he loves playing with Mickey.
If you're familiar with my book, Fabric Photo Play, you know I developed an easy technique to make quilted portraits. But I'd never done one in felted wool. This portrait is done entirely in colorful wool roving using my felting/embellishing machine. The background is black felt.
It's a keeper!
