He's done! This year's Santa Cthulhu is finished and posted for sale in the Etsy shop. If you haven't been following along, here's the story ...
In 2007, Brian and I made our first needle felted Santa Cthulhu around Christmastime. It was so much fun we had to make another in 2008, and again in 2009. In 2010 I branched away a bit and made an epoxy clay Cthulhu Elf on my lonesome, but it just wasn't the same. The needle felted ones are much more fun. And it's always better when Brian and I get to work on a project together!
Last year we started another felt Santa Cthulhu, but then Brian was in a tragic garage accident that left him with a broken hand. With him being unable to felt, we put last year's Santa on hold. We dug it out again this year and now Santa's finally done! This is our 4th needle felted Santa Cthulhu. He's got a fireplace, stockings, a plate of cookies, a dead trout and a live moray eel to leave as stocking stuffers ... all needle felted from wool. See the Etsy listing or the page in the Thirdroar gallery for more details, meanwhile I'll just post a heap of photos here!
Brian and I were asked to come up with an assortment of needle felted items to go in a display case at the local library, so we've been spending some of our free time felting critters. Here's a work-in-progress pic of a giraffe we've nearly finished. He just needs a few little things. You know, like eyes.
