Deme*tyoubi Felted Goldfish Unboxing

For years I have drooled over the felted goldfish art of deme*tyoubi and dreamed of commissioning a piece of my own someday. Well, that someday is here! I contacted her recently about making a felted replica of my female butterfly telescope, Minai. I'm so happy with the finished result!  What do you think, doesn't it look just like her?  I really love the way she made the eyes and the subtle color shifts on the body.  Who knew you could reach this level of realism with wool felt?  You can visit her Facebook page to see more of her amazing work here: Deme*tyoubi

The package arrived today all the way from Japan, and how could I not film an unboxing video for you?!  Also included in the package is a little extra surprise... watch the video below to find out what it is!
