Two Dogs

One of my bff's, Jenny, asked me to make two felted wool dogs for her sister's wedding. Her sister has two labs, Bella and Chevy. She wanted a figurine of each of them to sit on a table at her wedding on November 14th.

This is my first commissioned work, and I was really nervous, especially since it was for a good friend (well, her sister). Oh, the sister doesn't know about these, by the way. They're a surprise!

I finally finished them last night!

Meet Bella, the white lab.

And Chevy, the black lab. Jenny said Chevy's head isn't blocky like Bella's, so I tried to reflect that.

I'm really excited to see how the bride-to-be likes them. It's a heck of lot of pressure making something for someone's wedding!

I'm glad they're done. No more pressure!
