Yulia Derevschikova hails from Khabarovsk, Russia and has been making cute felt animals since 2015.
Derevschikova has made several hundred woodland creatures out of felt, and it looks like she’s going to be making these for some time to come.
She uses a felted wool technique, which means she does some weaving so the animals look fluffier.
Though the artist makes different types of animals, she’s best known for making woodland characters.
It takes about 20 hours to make each piece of art. The artist also has a distinctive eye for adorable critters, and her love of animals comes through with each finished work.
