The Plufo

I've been working on a bunch of little needle felted creatures lately. The idea behind them is that they are amorphous beasties that don't really have an identity until they pick a mask. Once they put on a mask, then they can take a shape. I want to make a whole bunch of them, because I have many ideas! So far I just have the three, but that's enough for me to share them with you. I must thank my friend, Misty Babcock, for giving them a collective name. I had no idea what to call them. Misty initially suggested 'Pluffo' which Brian then modified to 'Plufo' and I just liked it. So, Plufo they are!

This is Benk. He was the very first Plufo.

They are each between three and four inches tall, needle felted of wool. Their masks are epoxy clay painted with acrylic.

This is Tor. He'd like a carrot. Now.

This is Spec. He's not really sure what he's afraid of, but he's ready to run away just in case.They'll be for sale in the Etsy shop, and you can see photos with more angles of each of them there.

Santa Cthulhu, NOW with Genuine Flaming City! 

Last night after we posted the Santa Cthulhu, Brian couldn't help but think something was still missing. Today he sat down and felted a little city to go in the fireplace, with buildings that are burning and collapsing. Yours at no added cost, genuine flaming city! :)

2012 Needle Felted Santa Cthulhu

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!

Needle Felted Giraffe

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.
