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
We gave my boss her two little pups today and she said they were the best present of all time! That’s a rave review! Thanks again. – Eva in New York
