Fiber Friends are tiny critters and corgis hand needle-felted from all natural wool. Lifelike yet whimsical, Fiber Friends are a blend of my illustrative style and realistic portraiture – the likeness to their “big” friends is uncanny! They make me giggle and I think they play around my studio when i’m not looking.  I love custom orders and am especially honored to create commemorative pieces for beloved pets gone on to the rainbow bridge.

When ordering from Fiber Friends, please be ready to send me several pictures of your pet. The best photos are clear, well lit and include shots from each side, the front, back, from above and of any special markings.

My Corgi, Pocket acts as my office assistant, anatomical reference and all around muse. I love Corgis best of all and am proud to donate a percentage of every corgi-specific sale to CorgiPals, a non-profit that helps corgi moms and dads in need of financial help due to doggie illness or injury. I love all animals great and small and welcome custom orders running the gamut from hens to hippos and stock my shop with all my favorite farm friends.

I’m verklempt! Adorability quotient off charts! And am so pleased she’ll get it for her shower! – Colleen on the West Coast, USA

Miranda is so easy to work with and really cares about making the exact mobile that you have in mind! She has an amazing attention to detail and worked very hard to match our little pup. She showed us progress reports along the way and finished the custom mobile MUCH quicker than we expected. Communication was great, and Miranda is great to work with. I would highly recommend anyone that’s thinking about getting a custom mobile made to contact her and ask for her ideas. You won’t be disappointed! Thanks Miranda! – Jon in New Jersey

  13. Elaine Birch

    My corgi goes crazy over ham, though she rarely gets it.

  14. Virginia Rudloff

    Sweet!

  15. Linda

    Spanky love to lie on his back next to the wall with his legs propped up against the wall, or he will lie with his head propped against the wall or a door as a pillow.

  16. Taylor Greve

    I don’t have a corgi, unfortunately, but my favorite corgi pose is the sploot!

  17. Debora

    Your work is beautiful! I love corgis and have a small collection of handmade sheep figures that began with a wool and wire sheep in 1969. I have my eye on your black sheep gathering!!!!

  18. Debora

    Love your work, have subscribed to your blog via email, and I sure hope to win the give-away!

  19. sheryle bleashka

    my corgi gingers favorite sleeping position is flat on her side. she’ll just be walking and flop down on her side and take a nap! i love when she lays with her back feet splayed out behind her though :)

  20. Lana

    Would love to win the Corgi giveaway! Our Corgi sleeps on his side too! It’s like someone just pushed him over on his side!

  21. Heather McCloy

    My Reilly’s favorite snacks are hotdogs and Dairy Queen Blizzards, and he always sleeps in the crook of his Daddy’s arm, on his back with paws splayed wide, snoring like a freight train – like Father, like Son!

  22. Melanie

    My corgi Morty’s favorite snack is… Well, anything! I call his favorite sleeping position “the croissant” because he curls up just like a crescent roll.

  23. Christie vickers

    My corgi, Sugar, dances when she wants a cookie/treat! She also loves to “high five” everyone. When she sleeps she sleeps on her back with all four legs in the air and her head hanging off of the chair with her mouth wide open and tongue flopped out!

  24. Jessie

    I would love to be the winner of the Corgi contest! Whenever Alwyn wants a homemade sweet potato chew, he bounces between two tricks – he’ll start with a “sushi roll” and then stand on his legs and walk towards us (we call it “circus bear”) and then spin. It’s the cutest thing when he gets overly excited! =)

  25. Liz K

    I would LOVE to win a tiny pocket corgi! My girl Moose LOVES to snack on Lettuce and Popcorn :) yayyyy

  26. Kelly

    My corgi’s favorite way to sleep is the classic sploot position. That would be an awesome pose for one of these felties! :)

  27. Susan

    Love the corgi! Wish I could post my corgi puppy Copper John’s picture in his ‘frog dog’ pose–you could see his resemblance to your latest creation! I’ve just seen your illustration work–you’re such a talented artist. I adore children’s book illustrations, even though I don’t have children of my own.

  28. Betsy

    Love the tiny corgi’s! So perfect for my desk!
