Galahad Fan Art Sculpture

Felt Galahad Sculpture by Sasha Blaschka featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

Fan Art in Felt…You just gotta love it! Sasha really did this character justice!

“Galahad is an enchanted suit of armor and main character of the “Galahad & The Far Off Horizon” comic anthology, created by Hansel Moreno & Julian Adkins. This sculpture is made of wire, wool (mostly Living Felt’s MC-1 Batt in Carnival!), and polymer clay (with a pinch o’ magic, shh)! Capturing the proportions of this character was a fun challenge; I learned a lot from this project!”

Fun Felted Giraffe

Felted Giraffe by Wendy Fifield featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

It seems Wendy is willing to go anywhere with her art to achieve truly unique and interesting pieces! We love this giraffe!

“A giraffe done in my series of animals. Love how the sari threads worked for the mane. Used living felt merino blend for the body [amethyst] and some gastly rough pink roving someone gave me for the spots but it worked on this.”

Brilliant Nuno Felted Mad Hatter Jacket and Hat

Nuno Felt Mad Hatter Jacket by Sonja Weeks-Oswalt featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

Astounding, Remarkable, Brilliant! Sonja shared in our fb group how she made this INCREDIBLE hat!!! It took a lot of finagling, but she really pulled it off!

“So i made a hatter jacket to go with the hatter hat. Nuno felt and i have a love hate relationship.

I love the potential but never seem to have enough control (or space). This uses silk chiffon dyed with coffee, asparagus merino, merino luxury batt in forest, and the Autumn leaves artist pack. I adapted the pattern from a Russian dress pattern. Please excuse my sad hatter makeup and selfie timer portrait session.”

Cute Wool Coat with Needle Felted Animals

Needle Felted Wool Coat with Bunnies by Susan Nelson featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

What a story … wait til you read how she needle felted her first items…can you say Pioneer Woman?!

“I saw some felting on Facebook a few months ago. I live on Vancouver island way out in the boonies on the west coast. I watched a video to see that I needed a needle with some barbs on it. so I found a hat pin and snagged it with some wire cutters. I made a hare and was quite proud of myself. I found a store that I drove two hours to get to. I went in and there sat six people with spinning wheels. I thought I had gone back in time.

Purchased a couple needles. He had a tough one and regular. It didn’t take me very long to see how restricted I was with the needles. I sew and I understand needles so I looked again on the Internet and found Living felt. I ordered lots of needles.

Now I can control and sculpt fine details. the needles make all the difference. I had a piece of wool fabric . I placed some little pictures of critters that I had traced on to wash away interfacing. It is very fine, not good enough for embroidery work. It felted right into the fabric mostly or just pulled off as I worked up the the edges of the bunny. I was surprised how quickly each animal worked up. Important to plan colours that will show up. Looking forward to my next project.”
