The next couple of weeks I’d like to introduce you to a couple of Japanese wool felt artists. I’m especially intrigued by wool felted animals that either look super realistic and/or very cute.
First up is Makiko, she creates critters from wool felt or clay and also animates them for TV shows.
Makiko has released a book with basic techniques and DIY projects called: ‘Animals that smile’. It’s in Japanese, but the step-by-step photo’s are probably clear enough for you to work with. You can get it from Yesasia and Etsy.
Most of the wool felted animals look super cute and come with an engaging smile. I really like this style ❥
