I have seen many cool felted landscapes for animals lately and was very inspired to try my own. The latest one I saw was on a blog written by a woman who worked at the same daycare I used to work at. Check out her polar bear playscape here. In my landscape I wanted to have some dens and caves for the bears, foxes, and wolves, a stream and pond for the beaver and otter, and some meadow area for the others. I laid out all my wool and wet felted it last night. This morning I needle felted the caves to give them a bit more structure and stiffness.
The animals are out, exploring their new habitat. I added some rocks and twigs too.
