Carol Chmiko has added few more adorable needle felted animals to her growing menagerie! These two bears were made using llama wool.
If you would like to make your own bear, try the Living Felt Needle Felting a Bear Kit!
Carol’s daughter asked for a teddy bear hamster, and we think Carol accepted the needle felting challenge beautifully! It is really adorable :)
Carol’s puppies and kitties now have some wonderful new friends to play with!
“My sis & I won the “Best of Division” ribbon for the Felting division at the San Diego Fair this month. …Used mostly Living Felt wool!” Jackie uses a lot of Living Felt MC-1 Merino Cross Batts for her needle felted works.
All of us at LIVING FELT congratulate Jackie and her sister!!! Just think…10yrs ago, there probably was not even a Felting Division! It is so great to see the craft growing and artists being recognized and encouraged :)
We really love Carol Chmiko’s felted pets! You can’t tell that she has only been felting since January 2013!
Carol, who lives in Florida, likes to use colors from our New Zealand Corriedale Line, such as Natural White, Black, Natural Medium, Natural Dark, Natural Light, Butterscotch, Camel, Cupcake, Honey and Cherub.
She needle felted all of her little critters with Living Felt felting needles; including a Pomeranian, Chihuahua, Poodle, and several little kitties.
To get a great assortment of these colors in one pack, go for our New Zealand African Safari Pack.
Meet ‘Baby Trek’ a needle felted wool sculpture.

Jolene Klassen needle felted a likeness of the real Trek for his proud owners
‘Baby Trek is 12 inches in height.
“I worked on him for about 9 months. I used your fabulous core fiber and browns from your Studio Pack which were absolutely perfect for the job!“
“Receiving this second photo brought a huge smile to my face and to that of friends who saw the sculpture as it progressed – Baby Trek and the actual Trek taken by the sculpture’s new owner. We don’t know what the big guy is thinking in this pose, but possibly ‘well OKAY, IF I HAVE TO’!”

Something quick and fun for the weekend. Donna Brau sends us so many beautiful works of felted art, and this one is a colorful representation of three best friends.
Adds Corgis and a Mouse to her collection of needle felted animals
My little corgi Fiber Friends are all inspired by my love for Pocket, my Pembroke Welsh Corgi. She is the best muse! My pocket corgis are about the right size to ride along with my Breyer horse collection, as are the geese. My little mouse is quiet and sweet, with no poop or nibbling of bread! I love getting pictures of my clients dogs in the mail and marveling over the variety of the corgi breed. I felt all my pieces around Living Felt’s core wool and use locally sourced roving for the colors.
Needle Felted Dogs
Kathleen Schnelle of Pasadena, CA, felted this fun group of pups having a great time together. What a variety of looks, they all came out great! Love those little collars :)
“In honor of the dog parks everywhere and the friendships they have formed for both human and canine.”
