Felted Picture – Forest with Tiny Faeries

Needle Felted Picture Forest by Tracey Palmer featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

Tracey Palmer Wins a $25 Gift Certificate to Living Felt!

Tracey says, “I was working on this forest scene, and the wee faeries just moved into the trees !!”
This piece is entitled: “Enchantment”, and she used a variety of fibers including:
Living Felt MC-1 Batts, Merino Top, New Zealand Corriedale and Mohair Locks.

Tracey wet felted the background to establish the basic colors and concept,
and then added detail with needle felting. We love how “alive” this felted picture feels!

Mary began her felting journey when her daughter was very little and in a Waldorf school.

 “Wanting to create special toys for her, I began teaching myself how to felt with wool. I fell in love instantly. I knew that I wanted to share what I made with others and so my business “Ginger Little” was born.”

Mary loves color and incorporates that into her art, along with natural treasures that she finds along her walks.

“I hope to create things that spark a feeling of enchantment when you look at them – things that make you smile and wish you were a part of the magical worlds these little creations are part of. I hope that what I make will brighten someone’s day and that they will enjoy them for years to come.”

WALDORF FELTED MOBILE by Marcela at Magic Wool on etsy. Featured on the Living Felt Blog. http://livingfelt.wordpress.com

Marcela of Montreal, Quebec Canada creates a delightful array
of unique and creative toys and mobiles in the Waldorf Style.

She shares that most of her work comes from the fairy tale world and she,
“… discovered the magic of wool in 2005, when my oldest daughter joined the Waldorf kindergarten
at Cuernavaca city, in Mexico. I have incorporated this material to my creative work,
inspired by a Waldorf approach to childhood.”

Marcela’s delightful style has a sweet sense of “play” and “wonder” that you can feel
in every piece. She has done a wonderful job in capturing angles with her felted mobiles
that make the scene feel very alive and gently active.

“STASH” a Needle Felted Elf doll by Living Felt founder, Marie Spaulding.

“I think he will continue to be a work in progress, probably because he has touched my heart so much in working on him. I feel a bit like Gepetto, hoping one day he will come to life as a real elf.”

Needle felted elf doll by Marie Spaulding

He is needle felted over wire armature starting with CW-1 Core Wool using MC-1 Felting batts (felt batting).  For his skin, MC-1 Fleshtone, his acorn hat  and felted boots use MC-1 Willow, his tights are MC-1 Linen.  His tunic is nuno felted over silk using merino top, silk hankies, and mohair locks.  He is crouching and stands 27″ tall as posed.

His name is “Stash” because he has a little hoard of treasures that he finds on his travels.  He scoops up each one and cherishes it, thinking they belong to no one and he can have them for his very own.

Stash currently hangs out at the Living Felt shop :O)
Marie offers needle felting doll kits and instructions through Living Felt.

Melinda Cunningham of Lexington, SC,  needle felted these sweet and beautiful Mother Earth Dolls with such tenderness and detail. Thank you Melinda! She is truly a vision!

[This is] a Mother Earth Doll I created using Living Felt Wool and Armatures (I have created an 8″ one and a 4″ one).
After twisting armatures into a sitting figure shape, I needle felted the wool around it.”

OOAK Original Felts! Meet SNOUT MONSTER!

Kasey-Sorsby-SnoutMonster

You probably recognize the work of Kasey Sorsby, artist at Tanglewood Thicket.
This wonderful guy is pure wool, and is jointed at the arms and legs. From toe to horn he stands a towering 54″ tall!!
He was felted from 100% hand dyed wool using Kool-Aid, icing dyes made by Kasey;
the wool was dyed prior to felting.
Over the course of several weeks, she used a single 38 gauge felting needle to felt him. Incredible.
