Anna Yastrezhembovskaya is a remarkable artist whose work will make your jaw drop. This mom of two makes the most realistic animals by only using wool. The hand-felted creatures are so accurately done, you can easily mistake them for a real bat, hedgehog, bird, or a baby chick.
“My first toy wasn’t nearly as pretty, it was rather funny. But I enjoyed the process so much that I kept trying. I was felting during my free time, even at night, and I got better with each toy I made. I am flattered that my bats won the hearts of so many people, but the amount of orders I got was terrifying,” Anna told ModernMet.
Anna Yastrezhembovskaya usually needs around 10 days to finish a single animal. Just by hearing this you already know how much effort and love this artist puts in her work. She usually works 12 to 14 hours each day and sells tons of her cute animals on Etsy. Although she admits her first try was not as successful, you can check out how amazing she’s become in the pictures below. The animal which made her so popular and trending is the adorable bat she made for her daughter.
