Needle felted sculptures of foxes and dogs that fit into the palm of your hand

Mikaela Bartlett has a talent with needle felt. Crafting lifelike animals, mainly foxes and dogs, the Yorkshire artist sculpts the creatures out of natural/dyed sheep and alpaca wool, moulding their shapes around a wire armature of the animal.

The quality is so incredible, her resulting sculptures could almost be mistaken for taxidermy quality. Fitting into the palm of your hand, each sculpture is eight inches long or four inches wide, making an interesting addition to your home.

Through her Etsy shop, you can send her photographs of your own beloved pets and she will create a sculptured miniature version of them, down to the very last detail. But you'll have to be patient. Her waiting list is so long, she's booked for pretty much all of 2018 and 2019. Contact her to discuss your requirements.
