Lovely Felted Angelic Tree Topper by Kathleen Dodge-DeHaven

Kathleen always puts thought and energy into the
tiny details of her work; her care radiates in the grace of
this lovely piece. Visit the blog for more pics (including back)

“Angela” is 14” tall, and is made of wool from our local area
along with wool from Living Felt. Notice her beautiful hair!
That’s Sun Dyed Premium Mohair Locks in Sun Blossom.
And I love the Merino-Cross Fast Felting Batts for achieving
a smooth (and effortless) effect on the wings and the front of the skirt. For the larger areas,
I started with the Clover felting tools; the skirt was then wet felted with the assistance
of LF’s mesh netting and olive oil soap (nice on the hands!).

“Angela” is made over a wire armature, and is finished with hand beading, a vintage rosary,
and a vintage button at the back waist of the skirt. To keep her upright on the treetop,
I made a cone from a flexible cutting board, and covered it with recycled wool felt
in purple to match her overskirt. Notice the crinoline peeking out from under her skirt!

… I love looking at all the work of fellow felters.”

Enchanting Needle Felted Winter Scene

Julie King Felted Reindeer on www.livingfelt.com/blog

Julie King of Montana needle felted this delightful and enchanting winter scene.
The characters interact wonderfully with each other in a variety of ways :)

“The Sami people are nomadic reindeer herders in Finland and Lapland.
The little girl has a traditional costume and hat and even reindeer boots with the curled toes.
She can also ride the reindeer.”

We needle felted a basic cone shape for body and hat out of core wool and covered them
with MC-1 True Red. Needle felt a small ball for the head, cover in Flesh Tone and needle felt
to the body. Wrap pipe cleaners in Flesh tone, attach to body and wrap with red.
Add facial details, beard and decorate his coat!

We used: CW-1 Core Wool, MC-1 True Red, Cotton White, Fleshtone

Needle Felted Nativity by Katie Frisbie, Featured on www.livingfelt.co/blog

Katie Frisbie WINS a Felting Goody Box from LivingFelt.com!

This wonderful submission came to us from Katie’s sister-in-law, Megan.

“I purchased a nativity creche a few years back and asked her if she would be willing to make the figures for it.
She decided to felt them and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the results!
The first year I received the Holy Family, a donkey and a sheep. [Last] Christmas she surprised me
with a camel and a wiseman. I am not sure about her techniques
but I do know that for the camel’s eyelashes she used her dog Hugo’s hair!”

At the time of this posting, Katie does not have an etsy shop or facebook page for her work. If that changes, we will update!! :)
Until then, ENJOY this wonderful needle felted Christmas Nativity Scene!
