Welcome to wool art needle felting Westies by Lorri Collins.

My Westie was my best friend and I loved to groom him.

Every time I groomed my Westie I kept the fur.  He  had the thickest coat and it was a beautiful silver white.


With some hair from you pet I can sculpt a pure wool Westie for you.  I can put the hair into the body of the Westie  sculpture and keep it as a  treasured  keepsake.  Also you have DNA from your Westie.

Each Westie wool needle felted sculpture is unique.  All are done by hand using needles with little barbs on them and  clean, washed wool, in many  colors.  

I use wool from New Zealand with its long fibers and silky touch for finishing work and fine detail work.

My Needle Felted Westies are created from pictures  you provide or I can take some photos for you in the San Francisco Bay  Area for $15.00 (transportation costs).  

I like to see the body of the Westie from many angles so that I can  create a beautiful needle felting Westie wool sculpture that will truly  do justice to your West Highland white Terrier.

It takes about 16 hours to make one medium size wool sculpture.

I love the Terrier attitude and the fact that they do not shed. They are  perfect for any home, whether it be a  condo or a  home with a yard.

We all know that Wesies are different looking among  the breed.  Non Westie fanciers can not tell the difference but there  are tall Westies as well  as short legged Westies.  There are Westies  with big eyes and Westies  with smaller eyes.   Some even have brown  noses!

Here are some of my Westie personalities.


Spooky loved to lay just like this.



 Sometimes he would have one knee up in the back but  loved to lay on the floor just like this. This needle felted West  Highland White Terrier is the large size

Here is a needle felted Westie Girl Elle.  Her size is medium.





And here is a mixed breed little dog made from white and brown wool.  This size is small felted dog.

About me.

Lorri Collins has been a Westie and Cairn Terrier owner for over 35 years.  Along with oil paintings and water color  prints, she loves to needle felt little dogs, especially West Highland  White Terriers

I had always planned on keeping the fur and doing something with it but life got  complicated and my boy died. I was devastated when he died but I had his fur and I would hold it and his toys. It helped a tiny bit and then I found  needle felting dogs.  I’ve been needle felting dogs since then.  Order your own needle felting dog now.
