My daughter is really into Zebras for some reason. So I decided to do a felted Zebra piece for her.
Don't tell her, cause she doesn't read my blog. Anyway I decided a picture is not the right thing for her.
I decided to make it for a composition book so she can replace the insides when she wants to.
This is the backside of the piece. I did something I have never done before for this one. I bought a skein of yarn from Yarnbirds .... Actually my daughter got it for me when she was visiting there, and its a good felting yarn. So I took the yarn, unwound the strands. It is a four strand yarn, and used the single strands with a felting needle to make the black of the Zebra. The white is the prefelt that I used, and the eye is blue, cause I like blue, and the nose if of course a grey blend. I added the green as a background. I have to work out the details of the cover yet, but I thought this would be a fun way to use the piece and have it be functional. Shhhh don't tell her......
