Custom 3D Felted Dog Portrait: Needle Felted Dog (or Cat)- any breed (Whippet, Greyhound, Labradoodle, Bichon) Realistic wool dog sculpture


A mini version of your pup that fits in the palm of your hand! The perfect keepsake to honor your beloved pet. Please read the description to find out how to order your own (or for a friend!)

I’ll create a mini felted version of your pet based on photos you send. Each one is made by needle-felting (a process of repeatedly poking wool into itself with special needles) using 100% wool (no filler). This is a long process and I try my best to capture the tiny details that make your pet special! Each is completed with glass eyes and tiny hand-shaped beeswax noses to match your pet’s unique features.

Photos show examples of my previous work.

SEND YOUR PHOTOS THROUGH ETSY MESSAGES or EMAIL THEM TO thewoollyboxador [!at] (2 L’s in woolly!)

Note: The better/more the photos, the better the outcome! I will try my best to make it resemble your pet, but due to the nature of the art, they will not be identical and only an artistic interpretation by me. Feel free to submit a description of the features/details you’d like me to focus on (super helpful and appreciated!)

Photos required:
- front
- back (with tail)
- sides
- face (note whether you’d like mouth open/tongue out for dogs)

- Each one is made to order and once finished, I will send you photos of the piece. Please keep an eye out for notifications from Etsy. I’ll ship once you’re happy with it.
- Message me with any questions/concerns.

Each measures roughly 3 to 3.25 inches tall, and each piece comes in a linen pouch stamped with your pet’s name.

Please keep in mind that these felted miniatures are NOT TOYS. They contain glass (eyes) and metal wiring (frame/armature) and small parts, which can pose as choking hazards and be potentially dangerous. For safety reasons, please keep out of the reach of children and pets. Thank you.
