Minka in Blender

Recently I decided to try to make my dog in Blender, Minka. If you have seen her from a couple of posts ago then you know what she looks like. I have also made her out of polymer clay so it was time to try to make her in Blender. I rigged her and did a short animation of her sitting and waving her paws up in the air. This is not my first animation in Blender because I have tried many other animations that are longer and not good. You can view the animations I did with Minka on my youtube channel here. Also if you have an account on Blendswap then you can download her.

Needle Felted Border Collie

This Saturday (7/15/17) I am going to go to Michigan. It is about a two day trip from here to there. We are visiting my Dad’s parents. I don’t remember the last time I saw them, I was probably about two years old. They have a farm with sheep and border collies and maybe some other animals. On Christmas 2016, they were the ones who gave me needle felting supplies. So, before I visit them I decided to needle felt them a border collie. This is my second needle felted item and has come a long way from my starting bunny.


Tug-Of-War Dog Toy

This is a very simple dog toy. You can easily make it longer (which I recommend mine is fit for a small dog), or wider. The Tug-Of-War Dog Toy is great for people who are learning to crochet and want to make a toy for their dog. I’m sure your dog will love it!
