Tessa Bold is an artist who recently discovered needle felting…and she makes such wonderful creations!
Recently she heard we were teaching a free class at our local guild for needle felting pin cushions, so
she gave us these needle felted pies / pin cushions to share as inspirational models :)
What a lovely thing to do, right? They are needle felted with Living Felt CW-1 Core Wool,
and MC-1 Batting, aka felting batts.
This needle felted mushroom pin cushion she gave to us as a gift also. (then she learned of
our glass and gifted us the pies…she has such a sweet spirit!) These pots inspired us to put our
felted fairy garden pin cushions in flower pots also. Its so great how that chain reaction happens!
Tessa does not have an online presence yet..but we’ll share it when she does!
Lizzie Tucker is a long time mosaic artist who discovered felting. She makes wonderful works of felted art and then
uses the images on her greeting cards.
We love how she accentuates and rather abstract cluster of flowers with machine stitching.
Hand embroidery works well on this type of project also.
A sweet fairy in the garden … a felted work of art becomes a card you can share many times over.
A wonderful use of ribbons, novelty yarns and beads accentuates this felted picture.

This week we are all about felted gifts and cards. We love these felted pot holder and cup warmers by Ters Al in Estonia.
“I love knitting, crocheting and my little passion is felting. I love to make jewelry also, especially earrings. I love cooking and my children love my cupcakes :)”

We went crazy over this felted cat by Kelly Corso!
“This is a Day of the Dead cat I made using LF’s core wool and MC1 colors.
She is about 12″ tall. I am a total cat lover! Thanks for always inspiring me!”

Bird In a Tree Creations
This really rocked our fb page! Perfect for OOAK-Whimsical Week!
“This was my most whimsical and creative project lately!
Meet Miss Jules Octavia. She is 100% steampunk and full of life!
with her tentacles spread – she is over 2 foot wide
Hand felted using Living Felt’s fine Merino top in Lilac. Her legs were created using
a wire armature twisted in the center and carefully felted to the underside of her head.
I used Merino top in Plum to create her hat – with a black rim
(both stiffened with commercial fabric stiffener).
Her tentacles had 3 sizes of metal snaps running along the underside to mimic suckers
(but keeping in her Steampunk theme)
Her eyes are acrylic full round doll eyes in Violet.
She is embellished with a variety of items ~ some vintage watch pieces,- paper and silk flowers, gears, a
nd keys (the majority of which are seen on her right side – which are not shown in this picture)
Thank you Living Felt for having just the fiber and needles I needed to let my imagination run wild!”
