OOAK Needle Felted Maltese X dog
Here she is watching for intruders at the gate
Her toilet training is coming along nicely
Guchi loves to jump around on two legs
She doesn't seem to like the refuse collectors!
Here she is trying to sneak into my bag
Introducing "Guchi" the little Maltese X"Guchi" is made completely from "sculpted" needle felted wool, around a simple wire frame.She stands 15cm at the shoulders and 24cm nose to tail. She has bead eyes, a hand sculpted nose and a beautiful long white coat. I hand craft any animal from wool, much of it home processed from the original sheep's fleece, and pay great attention to detail. I'm not satisfied until it looks life-like, which takes many hours of careful needle felting. Each sculpture takes a minimum of 6 hours to complete, others with long fur like Guchi, take much longer. Guchi is a Maltese cross, probably with something like a Chihuahua or a Poodle.She is a delightful little character, and if you hover your mouse over her photos, you will see descriptions of what she is doing.She has lovely soft fur a little shorter than a full Maltese, and is bendable into different positions.She has a pretty little pink bow to keep her head of long hair out of her eyes. Maltese dogs are as the name suggests, said to originate on the Island of Malta, and they were well known by the Romans and ancient Greek. It is thought they were used for rodent control and as companion dogs, as they thrive on fuss and attention.They are known for being a little "yappy" and were once owned by aristocrats of the world. I hand craft any animal, but particularly dogs, and would welcome commissions.
