Sharon May does it again…you might remember her amazing felted cheshire cat that we shared recently, and now THIS!
He is approximately 18″ W x 7″ tall and weighs under 1lb. Needle felted over a wire armature and fully poseable.
“I love all things octopus so I thought it was about time I made a wooley one.
Here’s my effort made with Caramel and Linen MC1 wool.
He’s a candleholder but it looks kinda cute holding small plants too.”

What a gorgeous giraffe Tammy Saulnier needle felted for a gift!
“This piece was made for my sister for Christmas she loves her giraffes.
She cried when she opened it ….what a warm fuzzy feeling :)
When you don’t have a lot of money it is awesome to give a gift truly from the heart.
It is made over a wire armature and completely pose-able.
I used Living Felt core wool for the base
and used coffee to dye some of the “Merino Cross Fast Felting Batts“
for the brown I wanted ( as you can see the core wool dyed wonderfully for me.)”

Anne Franklin of North Carolina really stole our hearts with this little guy….
a precious needle felted red panda. Anne says she uses
Living Felt CW-1 Core Wool, and MC-1 Batts in Black Onyx,
Cinnamon Brown and Caramel. Adorable!!
Carol Rossi in Colorado never ceases to awe and inspire us with her
brilliant and lively needle felted animals. On our blog you will find
a number of her fantastic and realistic felts.
“The Thylacine was made with your wonderful core wool inside around a wire skeleton.
He was then finished with your New Zealand Corriedale Wool
in warm browns and butterscotches. He has glass eyes…
The Lion and the Unicorn were also made with your core wool
and wire skeletons and finished with your New Zealand Corriedale wool.
The Unicorn has hand sculpted horn and hooves made out of an epoxy putty.
His mane and tail are made from your Tussah Silk. They also have glass eyes.
I love your wool! It’s the best!”

We were so delighted to receive this submission by Sharon…this guy is a real character!!
“Imagine my surprise when I got my new order of MC-1 Purple/Berries
and this guy popped out. I love this wool. It is so easy to felt and the colors are wonderful.
I guess I’ll see what else is in that package. Thanks so much.”

Kathleen Dodge-DeHaven says, “I’m crazy about octopuses and the mythical kraken.
I’m planning a larger model, but that’s for the future. … I’ve taken to ordering your cross batts
for much of my work now because it felts down pretty smoothly.”
She calls this piece, Octopus vs. Starfish
Both the starfish and octopus have a wire armature. The octopus coloring
is New Zealand Corriedale in Cherry Red, the starfish is MC-1 Batting in Honeysuckle
with accent colors on top. Kathleen shared that she used our Olive Oil Soap for
wet felting and the Green Soy Pro Mat for needle felting.
Some people just take to felting right away and you would think
they have been doing it for years. Penny Allen of Alabama is one such lady.
This stunning Jersey Dairy Cow was her very first needle felted creation
made in October of last year.
“This is “Annabelle”. I’m new to needle felting (just in the past 4 days).
This is my very 1st project, and I LOVE felting so much! It’s so relaxing.”
Penny was searching the Internet for pictures of Jersey Dairy Cows and
discovered Living Felt. She started pretend shopping and saving things
from our store that she would like to try…so her husband surprised her
with a big box of goodies from Living Felt…this is what she made!
