Felted Flower Wallhanging Resembles a Painting

Living Felt:

Felted Flowers…not to be missed!!

Originally posted on LIVING FELT Blog!:

felted flowers wall hanging

Lisa Shanor of Wyoming celebrates spring with this gorgeous wet and needle felted wall hanging, depcting fresh cut flowers in a glass vase. She wet felted the base and finished the design with needle felting.

We love the technique she used for the vase that undoubtedly shows it to be see-through glass, and technique background that makes it resemble a watercolor wash with heavy concentrations of color in some areas and fading to light in seemingly uncontrolled patterns.

This felted wool painting is a work of fiber art, indeed.

Stunning Felted Sunflower

Living Felt:

Had to showcase this felted sunflower for this week’s theme!

Felted Sunflower made with colors of Merino Top. Wet Felted and Needle Felted by Living Felt Customer Vera Runova.

These gorgeous felted sunflowers come to us from Vera Runova of Minnesota. We have shared some beautifully felted flowers from her in the past and these are just as impressive. Vera shares,

This is a flower that is most commonly recognized. I decided to decorate my purse with this beautiful sunflower. I used Merino Top yellow [marigold], green [lima, garden ivy], and brown tones, and yellow colored silk. White silk is really easy to dye with different fabric dyes, so after all of this, wonderful creation was made! Hope you all have a great summer!”

Adorable Needle Felted Pie Pin Cushions!

Needle Felted Pies are Pin Cushions by Tessa Bold on www.livingfelt.com/blog

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.
 

Needle Felted Mushroom Pin Cushion by Tessa Bold on www.livingfelt.com/blog

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!

Rich and Beautiful Greeting Cards from Hand Made Felt

Hand Made Felt by Lizzie Tucker on www.livingfelt.com/blog

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.

Hand Made Felt by Lizzie Tucker on www.livingfelt.com/blog

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.
