Meet Mr. Franklin Rock-Turkey
Here he is, with all his rocks attached. He stands 5.5 inches tall. The pic's make him look quite a bit bigger,I just love those close ups, but then again my little people just love to have their pic's taken. Look he is actually smiling here! He was so happy here I was done pulling his head off and on.
Franklin was done with a new wool that I purchased from Patti at Dream Felt (http://www.dreamfelt.com/) I just love her wool. I feel this Chestnut brown really helped bring him to life. Now the back tail I dyed merino wool roving with food dyes.
The needles I used to felt him with, were some new ones I purchased from Kay Petal at (http://www.feltalive.com/). They are her Super Duper Double Needles. They are the best for needling on my rocks, can't wait to try them on an insulator. I DID NOT BREAK A SINGLE NEEDLE, felting Franklin!!!!!! Now that was a first. My rocks and I just love them.
