Adorable, Adorable Felted Frenchies!
Posted by Sharkey
Last month on Martha’s television show, an entire episode was devoted to Etsy. As you may know, Etsy is an online marketplace where people all over the world run virtual shops to sell their handmade or vintage items, art and supplies. Etsy member, Jennifer Thornington, was at that show and presented Martha with a very special gift.
1 What's wrong Francesca? Why so down?
2 I want to run around outside but Dr. Jean said I need to be leashed and supervised so I don't rub my eye.
3 Well, maybe this will cheer you up. Look what I found on the kitchen counter!
4 Look! It's a little you and me!
5 Martha recently did a whole show on Etsy and featured many designers. These adorable needle felted likenesses were made by Jennifer Thornington, who sells on Etsy.
6 She must have used this photo of us wearing our bejeweled collars for inspiration!
7 Let me take a look, Sharkey. I want to see how much it looks like me!
8 It looks a lot like you, Francesca! If you send Jennifer a photo of your pet, she'll design a felted copy for you. She constructs them out of wire frames and wool yarn.
9 Jennifer raises her own sheep and even handspins the yarn for her creations. She also has her yarn for sale in her Etsy shop.
10 I think ours are pretty spot on, don't you? What an endearing gift to give Martha or any pet owner!
