September makes...

Inspiration struck this month, making me want to make CRITTERS!  So that's what I've spent my felting time doing all through September..  

I've made hedgehogs and reindeer for the first time in more than 2 years :)

The animals went in two by two...
Just drying out here.
Sewing prickles onto the first hedgehog - HARRIS the big one.
I used a nice Harris tweed fulled in the washing machine for this one
Harris and the Hoglets :)

The Hoglets aren't Harris Tweed, their prickles are vintage wool tweed remnants - again fulled in the washer,  Their names are Remy the Light and Remy the Dark.  They all have rice packs and leather bottoms.. can be used for doorstops or the little ones can be bookends.  

This is the darker coloured reindeer with more 'grass' showing through the snow
Lighter coloured reindeer up close n personal :)

Both reindeer are teacosies..

They're all so cute I just want to gather them up and hug them! Are the Reindeer tea/coffee cosies?
