Needle Felted Hats and Holiday Friends from Jeanne Norris! February 16, 2011
Here are several projects from fantastic felter Jeanne Norris of Constable, NY! Thanks for sharing them with us Jeanne – we love your sense of humor as much as your art!
“The top merino wool is so soft it’s just right for a hat for someone who has no hair. Lilac Haze is just the perfect color to go with Carol’s (that hat’s recipient’s) coat…and greatest news, she may be able to go home next week!”
Incredible Needle Felted Scene with Dog and Bird! ~by Sheryl Smith September 14, 2010
This amazing scene was created by Sheryl Smith of Van Nuys, CA. What great details and textures! You have a gift for capturing movement Sheryl! And so resourceful, using the red from the Teak! :)
“Here is my newest needle felted project, a field springer spaniel flushing a pheasant. The dog is made from your white Merino Cross Batt, with black New Zealand Corriedale for the markings and white feathering on the dog. The pheasant is made mostly from tones from your Flesh Tones pack. I didn’t have any red wool for the eyes but I was able to pick out some red slubs of fiber from the color “Teak” in the flesh tones pack!”

Man’s Best Felted Friend ~ By Sheryl Smith June 28, 2010
With some help from her own canine companion Molly, Sheryl Smith of Van Nuys, CA needle felted this wonderful scene. What a great moment you’ve captured, Sheryl! I love the dog’s little collar!
“Hi! Here is my newest needle felted project, finished last week. It’s a Bluetick Coonhound doing what coonhounds do. The dog was made using the darkest gray [charcoal] in the Monochrome Goody Pack, with black patches, and the dog’s tan markings and the racoon were made with colors from the flesh tones goody pack. My springer spaniel Molly helped me find the stick for the tree, on our walk in the woods.”

Sharry Johnson of Rutledge, TN needle felted this adorable “Tigger” to serve both as a pin cushion and measuring tape! What a great idea! Visit her web store to see more of these wonderful creations!
“I have just begun to needle felt and love it and have gotten the mouse kit from you plus many colors of roving etc. So as you can see I’m on my way to adding this to my wealth of craft interests! I have been creating pin cushion animals with tape measures in them for about a year now and my method was sewing and stuffing with fiber fill. My friends convinced me to set up a shop as my shelves were overloaded with critters and crafts and I needed a way to get rid of them. My shop is http://www.etsy.com/shop/sharryjo but most of my critters have been sold now and are under pictured under ”Sales” on the right side of my shops home page if you are so inclined to see what started this all.
I decided now to create with felting since it is my new favorite medium and it lends so well to this application. This is a wonderful exciting learning process for me at the young age of 70. Thanks for all your help and encouragement.”

Darling Bird Mobile! ~ by Beth Ford June 2, 2010
Beth Ford of Ten Mile, TN created this adorable bird mobile as her very first felting project! Great job Beth!!
“I am new to felting and wanted to share my very first project that I made mostly out of Living Felt supplies. It is mostly NZ Corriedale and Merino Top wool with some cotton string and wooden dowels. It is a bird mobile that I gave as a gift for a new baby boy in our family.
Once I receieved my supplies from you about a week ago, I couldn’t put them down. I am now truly addicted… not only to felting but to your company and your cutomer service. I will definitely be ordering again in the future You can read more details on my blog: Produced Locally. Thank you so much.”

“Campbell” the Wheaten Scottie ~ by Karen Draak May 24, 2010
Karen Donnelly Draak of Stafford, VA included some of her own dog’s hair in this adorbale needle felted pup. What a beautiful keepsake to continually treasure!
“I first saw an article on felting in the “Bark” dog magazine. In the article they used dog hair. I thought it would be fun to make my own miniature dogs from their own hair and then I would always have them with me. I found your web site on line and purchased the Happy Dog felting kit to learn how. From that I tried my first Scottie. I used some of Campbell’s hair (my Wheaten Scottie) for the furnishings and the black hair from Baby Ruth, another of my Scotties. I am next going to try a black Scottie. ”
