Uncannily Cute Mini Felted Pets
Though each wool critter is a small delight, each requires a big effort–normally from 20-25 hours, Stahler says. "I do offer various sizes, though smaller size does not always mean less time," she says. "It is far more tedious work that I end up using a magnifying lamp for." Each mini animal costs $200, and smaller brooches and key chains can be commissioned for $65.
But all of it is a labor of love. Stahler donates a portion of every commission to animal welfare groups in her native Canada–even during months where she doesn't see a profit. Now that's an animal lover. To learn more about a Kay's K9s creation that you're sure to love, visit Stahler's website or shop online at the Kay's K9s Etsy site.
