What a handsome little bunny, don’t you want to hug him?

These fun cat faces really made our day!!
“Attached is a photo of cat face brooches I needle felted with Living Felt products. They are made from your MC-1 Merino cross batt packs: the beach party studio pack, goody pack, purples/berries pack and the fall fun pack.
Your Merino cross batts are so easy and fast to sculpt with. I had a great time figuring out what color and facial features each cat should have. Determining what expressions to give them was fun too!
Thank you Living Felt!”

Meet Smoky — a precious felted PUP.
Would you believe that at first Sonja was a bit timid about giving a realistic dog portrait a try? Wow … absolutely beautiful!

Check out this animated and gorgeous giraffe!
“Just finished my giraffe. I used to many many colors and I finger blended many of them for the texture. I also worked upside down from the reference pictures on some of tough spots. Used three different reference pictures. This was so much fun.”

“Dear LivingFelt, I love your products!
The animal’s basic forms were made from your CW-1 Core Wool. The details in their colored coats were made using your MC-1 Monochrome and MC-1 Earth tone studio packs, and MC-1 Soft Pink was used for their noses and inner ears.
Your wonderful Lincoln Natural Sheep Locks in Natural Chipmunk, Black, and Gray Smokey were used for the pony’s and donkey’s manes and tails, and the ram’s curls. They are lovely, full and tangle free. I haven’t found this level of quality from any other company. You are my sole resource for wool.
I hand sew groups of locks to make the pony’s and donkey’s manes and tails and needle felt core wool in matching colors over the stitches. The ram’s curls are needle felted in over a core base with white core wool. His horn is handmade ceramic with a wire base needle felted in with your core wool and covered with curls in the center. Eyes are glass.
LivingFelt’s MC-1 Wool was used for all the animal’s eyebrows in the coat color, and black core wool was added on the edge as eye lashes and also on their mouths for soft smiles.
The needles used were your 40, 42, and 36 Triangle and 40 Spiral.
I worked the wool using your Earth Harmony Series 10″ x 15″ Needle Felting Foam, which had held up very well, is easy to clean, and provides a roomy work space.
Thank you again for the quality of your products.
As an artist, using the best helps me to do my best work.

“I am sooo excited as someone must know how much I LOVE creating foxes because one of the colours is my absolute fave…Pumpkin Spice!!! I am going to have so much fun with all of my new goodies and of course my designated 8 hours of creative time. Thank you so much Living Felt team.
Also…here’s a new fox! Titled “Mnidoo-waagosh” or… “spirit fox”. He’s mounted on a 8 inch flexi hoop and you’ll see that lovely Pumpkin Spice on his tail. I was inspired by Rachel’s lovely sunset raven for the sky in this piece and wanted to try making my own sunset. The trees in my fox are White Pine and they tend to grow all whispy here in these parts. The arrow in the water portion also signifies that what we do on this land also affects the life in the water.
Thank you so much everyone for all of your support and love on my last piece, making these has felt like coming home to me.”
This is truly an inspired piece, well executed and a great composition.
“Hi everyone! So I finally finished my second Woodland Style piece last night and it’s a big one at 10 inches across. I’ve titled it “Maang (loon) Chases Supper.” There are soooo many Living Felt colours in this one! A couple come from little sample bags I’ve had sent with orders…those are the greatest thing, they’ve got me using colours outside of my comfort zone which is always fun and adding certain colours on my next To Order list! :)”
