This needle felted sculpture is a Father and Son Wire Haired Dachshund pair. They are permanently attached to the plinth they stand on. The daddy stands 6 inches (15 cms) tall and wears a wet felted scarf and a top hat. He carries his umbrella over his arm. The son is just 5 and a half inches (13 cms) tall and wears a little hand knitted jumper and a wet felted scarf. He is looking up at his daddy.
I needle felted both figures from various pieces of wool batting. I knitted the little jumper from baby wool so it is snuggly soft. I wet felted the scarves from a mix of Merino and Perendale wool.
This is not a toy, it is a sculpture to be admired, looked at and enjoyed. I had real fun making this father and son - thank you for looking at them.
I admire the work of a Russian Felt artist and she has mice stood up and dressed like people, this inspired me to use that technique with my Dachshunds
