WOW! We think Kate nailed this…don’t you?

“Playing with light and dark – first attempt at Northern Lights (merino and tussah silk from LF, first needle felted then lightly wet felted). It’s much more sparkly than in the photo! ;-)”

Fabulous Felted Horse

Felted Horse Painting by Heather Yerkey featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog.

This pieces is just fabulous! We love the use of color in the shading.

“This is a commission I recently completed. It was a challenge. The client wanted a white horse with a sky and cloud background. The difficulty came in while trying to make sure it was obvious the horse was white while not blending into the clouds! Also it’s not a huge piece so those tiny details and curves , especially of the legs were really hard to get!!”

Happy Little Felted Sunflower Fairy

Felted Sunflower Fairy by Carol Krajnick featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

A very happy little fellow, he would brighten anyone’s day!

“I just finished up this Sunflower Fairy. It was difficult to photograph. There is more depth of color than is showing up here. I loved the MC-1 Chestnut for the face, perfect shade of brown!”

– Carol Krajnick, Wisconsin

Beautiful Nuno Felt Flower Scarf

Nuno Felted Flowers Scarf by Irene Clark featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

We love how beautifully this scarf and the flowers came out!

“Attempted nunofelting a large flower onto a silk gauze. I am happy with it as a first attempt. I only did one end of the scarf so I can learn something before I start the other end.

I followed Marie Spaulding’s instructions [to avoid puckering] – cold water, rub and roll, no wad or throw, no cold/hot rinse.

I only added one improvisation, which is ironing while still wet from the reverse.

….

Update: my pansies scarf is now officially finished on both sides, I am adding more progress and finished photos. Thank you for your lovely feedback!”
