Pelican

What was your inspiration? A friend took this photo of a pelican and I was struck by how soft his neck looked -- thought it would be perfect for needle felting. I edited the photo to remove and soften some of the details in the background and then printed it on fabric prepared for inkjet printing. I used a wool roving to needle felt the neck and a variegated thread for the quilting.
