Sole Mates

"SOLE MATES" approximately 7" (17.8xm)
Designed by Sharon Mitchell
Inspiration for needle-sculpted characters come from many different and surprising sources. This one came from a vintage novelty ashtray made in Germany, called Happy Feet and it depicts a bald-headed little man with holes in the head for smoke to spiral out of and at the tips of the toes are little holes for matches.
I instantly saw how it would look as a baby, expressing its delight in its toes and its parents, as well as expressing parental pride!
Here is how I redesigned it in cloth and made it into the more lovable "Sole Mates".
Plenty of drawings and coloured photos are in this 21-page pattern to show how to make these characters that fit in the palm of your hand. Even making the separate feet is effective and eye catching!
Learn how to needle sculpt these characters and make one for yourself and another to give away for a happy event!
