Needle Felting Realistic Cats, Lions, Tigers, etc! Needle felt a domestic cat, wild cat or other big cat.
Award winning artist Megan Nedds joins us from Ohio to share her techniques for needle felting incredibly realistic needle felted animals.
Megan has made hundreds of realistic needle felted animals and will share all she can fit into these 3-days to help you sculpt an amazing work of art.

During this 3-day class, we will be exploring feline characteristics while everyone makes their choice of cat.
Cats can be challenging to sculpt because they are uniquely shaped, but this class will help you achieve that signature feline contour.
We will also focus on cat faces and fine tune details such as coat and paws.

Megan says, “I love working with Living Felt’s MC-1 fast felting batts because they are the perfect consistency for felting. They are so soft and the colors are perfect. When I use them, I know my sculptures will turn out great!”

“This is my 3rd needle felted cat Lucy (Scottish fold) in Japanese Kimono. Actually this is a typical new years decoration (cat version, though) in Japan. I thought it would take more time and I started too early. I should have made a Christmas wreath first. My project is all cats!”

Fun Needle Felted Cat Brooches

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!”

Stunning Needle Felted Cat

Needle Felted Cat by Irene Clark featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

Yet another truly remarkable needle felted cat by Irene Clark. Her realism is just stunning!

“Here is my new polydactyl red tabby (mackerel) kitty. This is a surprise gift for the owner. The cat is facing some health challenges and my heart breaks for the family that has to go through it. The cat is made on a wire armature, all corriedale, reverse needle, glass eyes. I am terribly nervous about this cat because nobody asked me to make it.”

Incredible realism with a sense of humor! This incredible needle felted sculpture was shared in our fb group by Irene Clark.

“Hi all, here is my new creation — this kitty is frequently spotted under our bird feeders and he take joy in annoying my indoor cats. But outside of that, he is a very sweet fellow smile emoticon:) I called this “What bird?..”

This cat is made from MC-1 batt and gray merino [carbon] (21.5 microns), all from Living Felt. It is felted on wire armature, the feathers are those of real quail, the eyes are glass, hand-painted by me.”

What a beauty is this little kitty?! From the coat to the pose, she looks incredibly real! This was shared in our Living Felt Friends Group! Irene does not sell her work, but makes gifts and auction donations for various causes.

“I am fascinated with silver tortie cats, there are so many colors in their beautiful fur. And they have lots of personality. I have finally finished my silver tortie Maine Coon “Silvie”. I used all Living Felt supplies. The core is made with corriedale and the long fur is merino tops.”
