What a beautiful sculpture, Erin is onto a truly original idea! This is the 2nd such work we have seen of hers, just lovely!
“The great bear Ursa Major with the Big Dipper .. love the bright white for projects like this.”
– Erin Carlson, Ohio

Tessa Bold is back in action, check out this wonderful Cardinal!
“Made a life-size cardinal. The cats were not impressed. All Living Felt wool over wire. Glass bead eyes.”
– Tessa Bold, Texas
Fan Art in Felt…You just gotta love it! Sasha really did this character justice!
“Galahad is an enchanted suit of armor and main character of the “Galahad & The Far Off Horizon” comic anthology, created by Hansel Moreno & Julian Adkins. This sculpture is made of wire, wool (mostly Living Felt’s MC-1 Batt in Carnival!), and polymer clay (with a pinch o’ magic, shh)! Capturing the proportions of this character was a fun challenge; I learned a lot from this project!”
– Sasha Blaschka, Texas
We love seeing the before and after photos! Isn’t this a lovely composition?
“I made this scarf using Living Felt’s green silk and I’m going to try cutting it up like Marie showed to make it longer. I love the colours.”
– Kelly Dal Busco, NSW Australia
It seems Wendy is willing to go anywhere with her art to achieve truly unique and interesting pieces! We love this giraffe!
“A giraffe done in my series of animals. Love how the sari threads worked for the mane. Used living felt merino blend for the body [amethyst] and some gastly rough pink roving someone gave me for the spots but it worked on this.”
– Wendy Fifield, Canada
Astounding, Remarkable, Brilliant! Sonja shared in our fb group how she made this INCREDIBLE hat!!! It took a lot of finagling, but she really pulled it off!
“So i made a hatter jacket to go with the hatter hat. Nuno felt and i have a love hate relationship.
I love the potential but never seem to have enough control (or space). This uses silk chiffon dyed with coffee, asparagus merino, merino luxury batt in forest, and the Autumn leaves artist pack. I adapted the pattern from a Russian dress pattern. Please excuse my sad hatter makeup and selfie timer portrait session.”
– Sonja Weeks-Oswalt, Tennessee
