i think this is the right category? i dunno. XD

well, i picked up needle felting while i was in Norway, and it's sooo much fun!! I love it. These are the first 4 things i made. :D

you can't really see the totoro... so i'll upload another picture for you. :D

these are kodamas, or forest spirits, from hayao miyazaki's Princess Mononoke. I love them so much! i'm going to make a bunch.

It would be fitting to make a bunch of them since they appear in droves in the movie.

lol, I tried to make one out of clay after I saw these (I will never attempt felting) but it didn't turn out nearly as cute as yours did...

Cuteness! Do you sell them? Or would you be interested in a trade? I make lots of stuff for sale and trade. Just check out my deviations for an idea of my stuff if you are interested. I love them!

Well let's see. Are you talking for a set of three? Or just one? And how big are they? And how much time did each one take you to make?

Sorry so many questions but I want to help you price them reasonably but still make your money off of them.

I admit, I had to look twice before I recognized what they were - they were my favorite characters from that movie! They're adorable, extremely cute.

Aw, they're so cute! Is the one on the left's head turned sideways? I can't tell if it's that or he's making a really strange expression.

it's done by needle felting.

"Needle felting is a popular fiber arts craft conducted without the use of water. Special barbed felting needles that are used in industrial felting machines are used by the artist as a sculpting tool. Using a single needle or a small group of needles (2-5) in a hand held tool, these needles are used to sculpt the wool fiber. The barbs catch the scales on the fiber and push them through the layers of wool tangling them and binding them together much like the wet felting process. Fine details can be achieved using this technique and it is popular for 3D felted work."
