Felt Taxidermy: the best kind of mount!

Felt Taxidermy 2

Aaron is an avid hunter. I'm perfectly fine with that so long as it is done with respect and we use as much of the animal as possible, but I'm not about to allow a dead animal head to hang in my house! So after a friend showed me some wonderful examples of felt taxidermy on, I knew just what to make Aaron for the holidays this year! I'll actually allow him to hang this one up! I can't wait to see the look on his face when he opens it.
I didn't have a pattern, so I started with a donkey plush pattern, modified the head, and did the rest with nothing but my imagination. I love how it turned out and hopefully I'll get a pic with Aaron and his new "mount" on Christmas morning!
