I don't know about ya'll, but I have gotten so that I like having little wire armatures in most of my felted animals... It gives them a frame of sorts, and offers stability, and makes them able to be gently posed in several different positions. I use aluminum wire because it is soft enough to bend by hand, and it is still very light in weight, and it doesn't rust. I personally tend to make the little armatures that stop at the neck, versus extending that piece that would be felted up into their head. Here's a little picture of one of my armatures that I use in most of my pieces... This one already has little hooves felted onto it... it's actually a little set of donkey legs ready to go! Do you use armatures in your felted creations?
