Felting Mixed Media – Felter’s Eye Candy!
Hand-made felt incorporated with knitting, crochet, beading, metal work and other art forms is wonderful to see & share! We hope you enjoy this sampling from a variety of talented artists.
In this stylish and elegant felt shawl, Angelina Pronina combines felting with crochet
for a one of a kind work of wearable art. This pic from her etsy shop: ProninA Designs
This beautiful work by Ingridi Käsitööblogi was an exploration and adventure.
She was working on an art challenge and chose the theme “Aqua” when the inspiration came
to create coral reefs. She began with crocheting, and later decided on an oval shaped felted bag.
We love the incorporation of hand-stitching and beading as well.
Ingridi is in Estonia and her blog requires translation, and we did not find much more felt work there, but she is a talented artist indeed. You can see more of her work here: http://ingridisetegija.blogspot.com/
Great inspiration from well-known feltmaker, teacher and author Chad Alice Hagen.
These little brooches are each a work of art in themselves. We love how
the variations in the color of the felt coincide with the stitching and beadwork.
BTW – this pic actually came from the Bead Lust Blog, she purchased these from Chad
~ we recommend any of Chad’s books!
This gorgeous felt with with stitching and embroidery is by Jacke Cardy…wow!

Sara Aires says she studied sculpture but does not practice it; instead she loves mixing up
different crafting techniques – like in these wonderful felt baubles with crochet and bead work.
