Needle Felted Fairy and her Quirky House
Lynn Sponagle of Canada thrilled us with this lovely needle felted fairy sculpture!
“I call this “Just Another Day in Fairyland” . It is mounted on a wooden base,
scroll cut from pine board. The house is simple boxboard covered with acrylic paints
and craft foam. The smaller flowers are commercial craft felt with crystal beads in the centers.
The leaves and everything else are needle felted with various wools from my stash.
The fairy herself and the mushroom are made from Living Felt Core Wool.
The rather complicated wings on the Fairy are Angelina fibers and beading
wire with a small amount of carpenter’s glue. This piece was inspired by the house made from boxboard.
I had recently worked in the costume department for a stage musical with a Dr. Seuss theme.
I suppose the wonky and out of proportion structure came from there.
It was purely an experiment but once it was completed I liked it enough to embellish it,
and this is where that journey took me. I have been needle felting about four years now,
when time allows. It’s a relaxing and creative way to pass the time during
our rather awful and lengthy winters.”
