Erin Carlson of Pittsburgh, PA is the artist responsible for this wildly realistic needle felted beaver!
He stands 9″ tall from toes to the top of his head. Erin shares that she is grateful he was requested as a commission
because she never would have thought to make this on her own.
She felted him over armature using core wool, Living Felt MC-1 Batts in Dark Chocolate and fibers she dyed herself.
Erin felts a great variety of critters from birds to butterflies, foxes, dogs and more! You might recall that we shared her
beautiful barn owl a while back also see that gorgeous creature on our blog.
If you are in Pennsylvania, you may get to shop her at one of many events or even take a workshop.
and see even more, more, more from her on her website, including some great “work in progress” pics! 🙂
