What a lovely gift and perfect for the season!
“Just finished making this bowl for the lovely lady who has been selling my silly pumpkins in her wonderful gallery the last 4 weeks. I have made 18 and sold 12, and she is not taking one penny for herself. She deserves so much more for her generosity, but I hope she will be happy with this little token of my gratitude.”
Becky Sullivan-Ollinger, Washington
What a perfect seasonal accent!
“My Autumn sky bowl. I used my mc-1 Orange, foliage and yellow and majestic blue. Wet felted with dry felted purple spiral needle detail, leaf and acorn.”

Wet Felting Over a Resist!
In this free video tutorial, Marie shows her methods for wet felting over a resist … step by step.
This two part video will serve as a great primer or starter project for wet felting a pair of slippers, a hat, or even a cat cave!
Start small and learn with simple projects :O)
For this little project we used Living Felt MC-1 Felting Batts, Olive Oil Soap, Bamboo Mat, Felting Mesh, and a Rigid Mat.

What an awesome sculpture!
“Winnie the warty witch, needlefelted with wetfelted clothes, stripy sock reused for her jumper and stockings. Casting spells by rubbing her whiskers and has a very unwitchy plum lock, in her hair.”
Kathleen Anne James, United Kingdom
A gorgeous work of art, function and fiber!
“I have always loved rocks so when I found out how easy it was to wet felt rocks from wool I decided to use them to make a pillow. The moss is embroidered on.
I used the wet felting batt to make a core for the rocks and various merino colors for the outside of the rocks.
Thank you for the inspiring, encouraging messages you send with each of your orders!”
Liz DeVree, Michigan
These are so original and oh so cute!
“I thought I’d try something a little different for Halloween this year. These were so much fun to make! I used floral wire for the infrastructure and Living Felt’s Merino [Cross] wool for the sculpting with some polymer clay for teeth and bone. I bend the wire legs at the bottom so I can staple them down to the birch base, and then felt over them so the staples don’t show.”
– Kimberly Czar, Massachusetts
What a sweet energy these two have🙂
“I just wanted to share this little Tricker Treater made with LF Onyx batt wool and vintage button.

The Mummy lives!!
“Wire frame, covered in core wool, 32 gauge armature wire for hands, one craft bobble eye and one glass eye. Meet my mummy.”
– Patti Bronecky, California
This sculpture has exceptional detail AND personality! The use of clay on the guitar was spot on, and read how she made the glasses!
“Here is my first sculpture of a person..Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead!
It was inspired by my brother, who is a huge Greatful Dead fan, and he urged me to create this for his fan club. I used 12G Armature Wire, CW-1 Core Wool, MC-1 batts in the colors ‘Fleshtone’ [ Now Sand], ‘Linen‘, ‘Bonsai‘, ‘Black Onyx‘, and ‘Willow‘, Lincoln Natural Locks in Lamb Gray, 4mm brown glass eyes, 20G Gun Metal Gray craft wire for glasses, and Premo clay in brown, black, ecru and silver for the guitar. I also used some brown ribbon for the guitar strap.
I taught myself a great way to make eye glasses. I used a dowel to wrap the wire around and then just bent the sides to form the arms. They turned out just right and I only used a small, single piece of craft wire. This was sooooooo much fun to make!!!
My plan is to make Frankenstein next, and I just ordered more supplies for him!
Thanks for your fantastic store and products!”

Last week our theme was “blue and orange”, and our friends STUFFED our fb group wall with photo after photo….Tipsy is not only a fabulous little sculpture, but a cute story too!
“Here is my favorite BLUE piece that I’ve made so far! This was a gift for my cousin who lives in Ireland; it’s a model of her Volkswagen bus named Tipsy. I wanted to surprise her with it when I went to visit her for two weeks. It flew with me from Atlanta, to Boston, to Dublin, and then continued with me on the 3-hour bus ride all the way to Co. Donegal. I got to travel all over Ireland in the real Tipsy and it’s a trip I’ll never forget!”
