Gerald the needle felted pumpkin

Here's a little something I've been working on.
 Never needle felted a face before and it seemed unlikely that I would be able to so I thought I'd do it into a pumpkin rather than make a whole person and then ruin it.

I'm happier with the bottom half of his face than the eyes/brows.

Supernatural Plushies

There are two things that I know for certain. One, Bert and Ernie are gay. Two, you are not gonna die a virgin. Not on my watch.
Dean and Castiel plushies! Dean needs his teeny necklace, but I don't have any fimo at the moment - he may get one later.



I’m the one who gripped you tight and raised you from Perdition.
I totally messed up the bag under his left eye, but I'm not going to sweat it!

Sam: We should call Castiel.
Dean: Dude - on my car! He showed up naked, covered in bees.
I actually have two different brown felts - one for his hair and a darker shinier one for his jacket. I'm rather proud of that fact, even if it doesn't show up in the pictures.

So what, I'm Thelma and you're Louise and we're just gonna hold hands and drive off this cliff together?
Dean's jacket collar is up at the back, cos he's cool.

Oliver Queen Arrow Plushie and a crown

I've been making things that I can't show you yet annoyingly, so although I was going to save this guy until the Arrow premiere I decided not to.

Oliver Queen!  Not sure why I made him look sad.
 Two things I am very happy about: his general body shape and his eyes. Look, I finally worked out how to do eyes! Two things I am less happy with: his hood which should have peaked upwards at the top and his mask. I was considering doing the mask the same way as the eyes but it has a smudged on look in the series so I thought using a marker would work. It just looks messy. Still... look at the eyes!



 Also, for anyone who didn't see it - I made a conker crown!

Castiel watches the bees (Supernatural embroidery)

Any Supernatural fans out there? I am now a third of the way through season 9 so hopefully I will be less obsessed once I am done. Until then... I was trying to decide between doing a 'freaking pie better be worth it' and a 'I've got a GED and a can-do attitude.' But instead, I did this little chibi Castiel. I based it on a picture I found on the internet but I couldn't find a source for it - sorry.

 Not sure I am totally happy with his eyes. I nailed the trench coat though, right?

I'm gonna need a bigger window. There's another 6 sitting on the floor. Anyone want an embroidery hoop?!
