Fiber Friends are tiny critters and corgis hand needle-felted from all natural wool. Although life-like, Fiber Friends are more 3 dimensional illustrations than realistic portraits – though 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. Read more about my inspiration and process at my Etsy About Page. Visit my Etsy shop, send me a message or fill out the contact form below for more info on how to commission your own pet portrait or mobile. You can also read all about ordering mobiles here. 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.

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

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.
Dear Miranda, I delivered this darling Border Collie to my friend Tanya and her Border Collie Mr. Buzz yesterday afternoon. Tanya was so pleased. She is going to take the little one to her office at school so that she will have Mr. Buzz with her at all times. Mr. Buzz is retired from his work with Tanya as a therapy dog in her guidance counselor work. He is also the “star” of her book on working with dogs to promote literacy. http://www.radianthen.com/titles.php He is in his last days, but still a bright-eyed boy who loves company. I know that your little fellow will be of great company to Tanya as she prepares for this transition in Mr. Buzz’s life. Thank you for your beautiful work.
Best wishes, Susan

Hi Miranda, great news….. my Rosie fiber friend arrived safely today! It is really perfect. You have even put detail on the bottom of the paws! The colours are beautiful and it’s so soft. It actually made me cry when I first saw it. ♥ I’m surprised at how quickly it arrived all the way from the US. You packed it so well. Thank you again. Kindest regards -Hanna (United Kingdom)
I can not express how pleased I am with fiber friends! There was great communication and Rory and Finnian turned out perfectly!! My mom is going to absolutely flip. Your work is beautiful and so well done. My mom LOVED her pocket corgis!! She teared up when she saw Finnians. My whole family keeps talking about how much they look like Rory and Finnian. Thank you so much you have such a talent – Laura
