Wow, how do you needlefelt ears?  Pretty amazing dog.  I am a fan of the bigger breeds; the little yippers scare me, as I'm always worried I will hurt one of the smaller breeds, even though I am very fond on teacup yorkies, they are about as mini, of a min real life dog that I have seen.

Hi WeekendMiniaturist,

Most of the non central body parts like ears, tail, legs and even the head are worked on a square piece of foam and then attached to the body. Just overlap the wool fiber into a triangular ear shape (bigger than you want the ear to end up), lay it on the foam and start stabbing with the felting needle. Anywhere you stab the wool hooks together and starts compressing into felt.

This is the finished Alsatian dog.
