Canada-based fiber artist Meagan Alessio brings new meaning to the term, “toy dog breeds,” with her unbelievably tiny replicas of man’s best friends.
The miniature pup models look so realistic, you would expect them to run up and wag their tails at you. They are, in fact, needle felted and made with fluffy white unspun sheep’s wool.
Each mini-me is paired with its very own teeny toy, along with a handmade rug, blanket, or cushion. Typically, the adorable replicas take between four and seven hours to make, but the crafting of the accessories will stretch the process to a grand total of five to nine hours.
Alessio fell in love with fiber art shortly before her first son was born. “I wanted to make him an adorable wool mobile, and since then, I have been absolutely addicted to it… I find so much joy in creating unique, whimsical items to bring a smile to people’s faces.”
