"Popsy" The Guinea Pig - A Miniature Treasure

"Popsy" 1" Guinea Pig
Meet "Popsy" my newest "Miniature Treasure". Popsy has been needle felted from beautiful, soft merino wool, beige and tan. She is one inch long and about 1/2 ins high. Her eyes have been needle felted and her mouth/nose embroidered. She is such a cute little guinea pig who sits happily in her gorgeous soft little nest which has also been needle felted from a very pretty pink merino wool. Nest is approx. 1.5"x1.5"
Popsy is looking for a new home and is now on my website and in my Etsy Store.
 She was created from a memory of two little guinea pigs that I had the honour to love and care for as a child, Topsy (black and tan) and Popsy (beige and tan). I plan to felt "Topsy" next, who will have a blue nest as he was a boy.

For more photographs please visit my BEAR STUDIO
I do hope you like her!
