All Things Felt and Beautiful
Let me help you make you the perfect lasting memory of your special friend by creating a beautiful needle felt model of your dog that you will treasure forever.
The needle felt dogs I makeare some of the most characterful and true to life models that you will find. I understand the importance of capturing the unique look of your dog. I study each precious little marking, notice the way he holds his head, how he looks with those adoring eyes, so that every time you look at his model it will remind you of him and make you smile.
All you need to do is choose what size model you would like and I shall be in touch with the information you need for me to start your commission.
The whole process takes three weeks and I work entirely from a small selection of photos. When your model is ready you will have every opportunity to make sure you are absolutely thrilled with it before I send it beautifully wrapped for you to open the very next day.
Priced according to size of the model you would like. Each model is weighted, 18cm in length and are £175, and large models are 25cm in length and £245.
About the Artist Sophie Wheatley
Some of my earliest childhood memories are of encounters with dogs and throughout life I am continually in awe of how they connect with us to create wonderful and memorable friendships. Through my work it is my wish to make a tangible memory of these friendships that can be treasured for a lifetime.
At home you can usually find me surrounded by bundles of wool, and working on my latest needle felt commission, or I might be out in the local countryside walking with my dog.
“Sophie has made three felted dog portraits of my terriers and each one has been wonderful and lifelike. Her portraits are an accurate reflection of my pets and I am in the process of arranging for her to make three more sculptures for me. Thank you Sophie you have a rare talent”
