Check out this stately and stunning needle felted black bear created by Sue. We love his pose, the facial coloring and detailing of the paws! Great Work, Sue!!
Megan Nedds continues to wow and inspire with her realistic needle felted animals. This glorious red, felted cardinal boasts a wing span of over 13 inches! He is felted over a wire armature and was created as a commission. Be sure to check out more from Megan right here on our blog and at her etsy shop, and on facebook where Megan often posts pictures of her sculptures in progress. Interview with Megan
We love this fall landscape by Tracey McCracken Palmer
She did a beautiful job capturing this fall landscape and reflections in the light.
“Happy Fall, Ya’ll !! I just finished this landscape – “Autumn Cascade”,
and wanted to share it in your Fall is for Felting Fun !! Wools used are your
MC-1 Merino cross-batts in Buttercup, Foliage, True Olive,
and also Corriedale – Black, Cocoa & Butterscotch,
with some carded together for variation.
The waterfall is white merino & corriedale with White Tussah silk top for some sparkle,
and olive carded with a dark gray for shadows.
Trees are just so much fun with your cross-batts !!”
We were delighted to find these wee felted pumpkin houses for wee little folk on MudHollow.
They are wet felted with hand crafted accents, and filled with pure sweetness!
You can find a felted pumpkin house like this and many other delightful wonders
on their etsy shop: MuddyFeet
Sharen Johnson of Rutledge, TN felted these amazing Jack-O-Lanterns!
She needle felted them out of CW-1 core wool and topped them
with dyed Merino top wool.
“I have been listing my specialty pincushion/tape measure novelties on www.sharryJo.etsy.com in the past
and they have been well received so I am excited to be back to felting once again.
I am so grateful for Living Felt’s quality products. They bring out the creative gene in me.
Next is a stackable pumpkin pincushion and tape measure. Meet Meanie, Miney and Mo.
Meanie is on the bottom and is perplexed with the heavy weights above.
Miney is holding up well and a little better natured,
but Mo is oblivious to all below and enjoying the view from the heights.
They are a pin cushion also and entirely out of Living Felt Merino wool.
The tape is hidden under the leaves on Miney and is retracted by squeezing his sides.
He really enjoys that as he considers it a hug.
I am limited to dial-up internet so I cannot enjoy the video workshops to give me ideas for other felting.
I have mainly just gotten an idea in my head and grab my 3 types of needles
and poke away until my idea becomes a reality.
What a fun way to vent anxieties! These 3 projects were mainly done
with the #36Triangle needle, starting with the #38Star on the core wool.
I didn’t add armature in any of these 3. They really didn’t need it and can stand alone on the felt base.
I make sure the core wool is felted pretty solidly. I sometimes add
marbles for stability embedded in the base.”
