It is so fun to explore what you can make with a bit of MC-1 Batting, Wool Felt and a Transfer Pen!

After transferring the wing pattern from printer paper to the felt with the Transfer Pen, the wings were needle felted onto the Wool Felt and then cut out.

The body was needle felted and slits cut into the sides. I used pins to plan the wing placement and overlap, then wings inserted into the slits. Hide the insertion points and join to the body more securely by needle felting wool between the wings and the body.

“I needle felted and wet felted this water lily and lily pad one petal at a time and then sewed it together as they were very felted. I felted each stamen and then waxed them for smoothness. During the wet felting I rinsed with lavender oil! “

3 Fun Famous Felted Characters

Felted Chesire Cat by Melissa Hoover featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

What a bright little tribute to Alice in Wonderland!

“Here’s a little Cheshire Cat inspired by the illustration from the Peck Aubry Alice paper doll set. He’s 3 1/2″ long and 2 1/2″ high. He was mainly worked from core wool, then striped with roving. I used a reversible needle to gently, quickly pull bits along the stripes to smooth over for a more natural look.”

What a perfect Snoopy in every way!

“I just want to say how much I love Living Felt’s wonderful CX-2 BRIGHT White Felting Wool: WINTER WHITE! I’ve been yearning for a true white roving and they delivered not only a beautiful white color, but also a great texture that felts like a dream! I couldn’t have made Snoopy like this without it! Thank you Living Felt!”
