We love this needle felted bear by Kiersten Marie…this is her very first bear and was made with the Living Felt Needle Felting a Bear Kit. Now that she has some basic skills learned….we can only wait to see what she will felt up next!

 

“Hi!  I wanted to send in my photo of the bear I made with the “Needle Felting Bear with String Joints” kit. I was very pleased with him as my first attempt at needle felting. I have since made a few more of my own creations.

Thanks so much for helping me to begin my needle felting hobby!”

Sincerely, Kiersten Marie

This winged cutie-pie was needle felted by Tara Colna of Glassboro, NJ. I love the addition of the wings and heart! What a sweet idea.  Keep on felting! Can’t wait to see what you’ll make next!

“I just wanted to share my 1st creation ever needle felt creation, I made using your bear kit. It was so very easy to work with and I had a lot of fun making him.  Thanks so much”

This little cutie pie was needle felted by Dana Kwak in Calgary for her new born baby boy. I am sure they are an adorable pair! I know you’ll be busy, Dana, but we do hope to see more of your creations soon!

“I have just finished my first needle felting creation!! :) I bought one of your bear kits and really enjoyed making this little guy (I named him Ralph). Your instructions are great – so easy to follow. It’s so addictive! (although it took me a while to finish him as I had to juggle needle felting time with my new baby… Ralph is for him) :) I’m so excited about starting another needle felting project… I am already creating characters in my mind and can’t wait to make them! Thanks so much for making it so easy to get into this fun and very satisfying craft. Thanks again! :)

This adorable little fellow was needle felted by Sandra Leigh Bierier of Waukesha, WI.  What a great look you achieved! Thanks for sharing your technique with us, Sandra! Sure looks like the type of cuddly friend you’d want on a cold winter night :)
“Hi, This little guy (9 ins) is a happy little bear. He is fully jointed and made with merino wool.  His fur  technique is done by looping the roving and then cut(ing) the loop, makes it look like lambs wool…I enjoy doing this, I have like 4 others in progress..It at least helps the winter go faster by being busy…and I am that…”

This fuzzy little fellow was made by Michelle Carr, of Riverton, WY, by first needle felting his individual parts and then sewing his arms and legs into place with string. This technique makes your project posable – allowing him to sit or stand! Great job Michelle! What a cutie! And what a great idea for a toy to have on hand.

“Bear made with Living Felt kit.  Above, he is standing and (below) sitting.  The kit was great and this was a wonderful first project to learn jointing with thread. Each item I felt teaches me more and I enjoy it so much!  I plan to make several smaller bears to keep on hand to give away randomly to children when I sub-teach and at church for a parent who has a squirmy child in need of a soft, quiet toy.  Thanks”

“This was such a fun project! I did ornaments for friends this year. This is the snowmen trio! Actually 2 are ladies, but that’s ok. I used the white wool batting that I just ordered for the bodies, along with some of the roving I purchased last year and some that was gifted to me from a friend who purchases from Living Felt. I did a bit of hand mixing to get the colors I wanted and attached small silver chains to the top by using jump rings and felting through them. the one on the left has a piece of lace with a small felted flower at the collar. I started last year, felting on flat fabric, but I like the dimensional felting better! Thank You Living Felt!”  ~ Jodie Davis

Susan Sizemore of Vancouver, WA has started felting her own little animal sanctuary! Each one has such personality! Try making your own friendly pet with one of the one-of-a-kind animal kits!
“These are my latest little felted animals. I use living felt needles, felting flat grey foam pad, their round black beads for eyes on most of my animals, and wool.  I have bought lots of different types from them over the last few years , my favorites are the earth tone batts, and the grey black and white batts. I have used several different types of wool on these in the photo. Each one is approx 2 – 3 1/2″ .”

“This little guy is ready for those cold months ahead. He is made from merino wool and is jointed and also has an armature. He was so much fun to make, planing on making a gal pal to match. This is so much fun, anything your imagination can take you it can be made felting.”

This adorable bear and bunny come from Sandra Leigh Bierer, daughter of Patricia Bierer who has been sharing her creations with us for some time now.  What a wonderful hobby to share! And we agree Sandra Leigh, you can do almost anything with wool! Its a wonderful medium to share with your family, friends, and community!

“Hi,  My name is Sandra Leigh Bierer, of Waukesha WI, these are a few of my creations.  Love felting, my Bellie Button babee Bunnie is 5ins and has wire armature and is done with merino felt.
My little bulldog faced bear is also done with merino felt and is also has an armature. This is so much fun. My mother and I have always loved art but this has given us so many opportunities to do so much. There is almost no limit and believe me, we  are taking this as far as our imagination can take us. Thank You for  giving everyone an outlet to show  our  talents.”
