A Favorite Fantasy Friend Come to Life in Felt! ~ Irma Hoani
Irma Hoani of New Zealand needle felted this stunning likeness of Falkor the Luck Dragon from the children’s book and movie “The Never-Ending Story”. You really captured something in those eyes, Irma! He is gorgeous!
“Just finished the epic adventure that was needle felting Falkor the Luck Dragon from The NeverEnding Story! I needle felted him over a strong wire armature using white merino wool and a merino/silk blend. His “fur” is hand rooted mulberry silk. His scales are hundreds of individually sewn glass seed beads, iridescent beads and natural New Zealand shell beads. His claws are sculpted of paperclay and he has acrylic eyes.
There are many more photos of him on my blog and you can see him as a work in progress! http://fantasyfelt.blogspot.com Thanks!”
