Piparkakkukissa by Uuju Piparkakkukissa by Uuju
"Gingerbread cat"

And her name is Pipari for short. She doesn't look much like a cat since I wanted to keep the tail long and curly... looks more like a rodent of sorts. But who cares, it was a success in my opinion and I definitely got carried away with the decorations... which I'd gladly do more in the future on similar creatures.
Oh right, this was also a birthday present for mom.

It's about 7 cm tall.
Edit: In case someone wonders, it's made by needlefelting.
Thank you for all the comments and favourites! (:

Aaa, nää siun neulahuovutustyöt aiheuttaa miule hirveen himon käydä ostamassa villaa ja kaivaa omat neulat esiin pitkästä aikaa! ;u; Tää on suloisin kissa ikinä, rakastan tuota hahmosuunnittelua!

Amazingly cute. Did you use wire to curl the tail or just really dense felting?

Uuju Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
Thank you!
Yes, a wire, or a pipe cleaner for crafting to be precise.

Kiitoksia taas! ; ) Opiskelen graafista suunnittelua Pekka Halosen akatemiassa, tosin tuntuu siltä ettei tuo ala ihan kokonaan ole se minun juttuni.

Hmm...? Haluaisitko/viitsisitkö kertoa graafisen suunnittelun opinnoista jotain, kun pitäisi johonkin tässä keväällä hakea, enkä ole muuta keksinyt kuin kuvataidekasvatuksen... :D Kuulostaa mielenkiintoiselta kuitenkin.
Reply
:iconuuju:
Uuju Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
Hehee vai niin!
Hmm, opintoihin kuuluu muun muassa typografiaa, julkaisun suunnittelua, webbisuunnittelua, kuvittamista ja opitaan käyttämään Adobe-ohjelmia... no, kaikkea mitä graafiseen suunnitteluun kuuluu, varmasti unohdin jotain tärkeää. : D

Kannattaa perehtyä asiaan, sinne ei ihan noin vaan pääse jos ei ole varma mitä graafinen suunnittelu edes on. Mutta toivon että löydät sen joka vaikuttaa omaltasi, olkoot se sitten graafinen suunnittelu tai joku muu. : )

Perhaps in the future, I'm not so sure. I've thought of selling these kind of things on Etsy.com, but I'm sorry to disappoint you, at the moment I'm just not enthusiastic enough to sell these to overseas. Thank you for your interest, though. : )
