Funny Little Felted Valentines – By Barbara Wilson
Barbara Wilson of Allen, Texas shared her fun and quirky needle felted Valentines. I especially love Birdie….no wings, but two great legs! We also appreciate Barbara’s wise words for the creative process….something to remember.
The first submission, the Griffin a red creature with green eyes. He stands 11″ (28 cm) tall. Griffin is made out of Living Felts Merino Top Silk Blends in Pomegranate. This Griffin is holding a valentine for a very special person.
The second submission, the birdy was also made out of Living Felts Merino Top Silk Blends in Pomegranate along with green and red Living Felt Merino Cross Felting Batts. She measures 1 3/4″ (4 cm) from the top of her head to her bottom.
“I don’t really have a purpose to my creations, I just enjoy watching the different creations and personalities emerge as I add or remove different parts. I have learned that sometimes you just have to walk away from a project and return later in order to get a new perspective. If you think the project is not turning out the way you wish, take a break and come back later to see it from a different view.”
