My Teenage Daughter Built Me A Theatre Box So I Could Create Dreamy 3D Scenes With My Needle-Felted Animals (40 Pics)

My name is Rachel Austin. I’m a textile artist based in Gloucestershire in the UK. I have been needle felting for a few years now, and more recently, I tried to photograph my creations using a standard lightbox I purchased from Amazon. The photos of my little sculptures didn’t come out quite as I wanted them. My daughter, who is studying A level DT, is always coming up with amazing product ideas and designs. She came up with an idea of a design for a unique lightbox, which would not only let in a lot more light but also allow for easy, changeable scene building/assembling.

I really hope you like these little woolly scenes, which would not be possible without the help of my wonderful daughter, Sophie! If you’d like to see more, please feel free to check out my Facebook and Instagram.

Also, stop by my other posts on Bored Panda here, here, and here.

Thanks for reading!

How was your day at work at the wine shop?”, inquired Mrs. Thimble. “It was a wonderful day!, we danced, drank, partied, and had a most wonderful time!” Exclaimed Mr. Crumb to his beloved wife. “We must go inside, my darling if we wish to eat the biscuits warm!” said Mr. Crumb as they scurried inside.
