Knittynudo Curiosity of the Week!

Little Mustard is dedicated to all of the farm cats you see roaming the English countryside. They’re always so sweet yet you can’t often get close due to the fact they dart away so quickly!

I wanted Mustard to be a little rustic and folksy, so I needle felted the main shape from undyed Tunisian wool roving. This stuff is quite rugged and felts up so nicely (and quite quickly too!) Yet because of it’s rough texture you never really get a completely smooth surface, but that was the look I was after. I wanted Mustard to have a traditionally rural look.

I decided to give Mustard bright green eyes, to create a good contrasting palette and to give the eyes a bit of a wild look. Adding some tabby stripes and a cute button nose finished off the cuteness!
