My last big sculpture of 2016 is this mommy elephant and her little baby.  I love making elephants and this little pair turned out pretty cute.  I have been sharing this work in progress on Instagram and Facebook.  I put together some of the pictures here for you to see the process I went through to complete these needle felted animals.  This adorable pair is solid wool all the way through made with Romney wool from my flock of sheep.  I sculpt them gathering inspiration from pictures of live elephants.  You can learn more about needle felting from beginner to advanced in The Needle Felting Academy, one of the favorite advanced classes in this membership is how to make an elephant just like this.
