This magical little needle felted elf would brighten anyone’s day! We see lots of MC-1 in this little sculpture…well done!
“After the week I’ve had, I think it’s time for a little music and dancing! (with a little help from Living Felt and their awesome wool!)”
– Kristin Johnson-Ray
In a brief “pre-show” video, Marie showed how to set up your wet felting station, and how to lay out the “base” layer with two thin layers of Merino Top.
For the felt-a-long, we demonstrated felting with the canes and beads made during earlier episodes, we worked with pre-felts, silk fabrics, sari silk waste, and resist materials for interesting effects.
Making small test pieces like this is a great way to learn and explore!

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!!”

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
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!”
– Irene Clark, Wisconsin
These artful flowers have such life and feeling! It is wonderful how much support our community LIVING FELT FRIENDS provides for each other!

PS: this was so challenging and I am so happy with the result. I hope you like it too.”
