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.”

Felted Cat Cave is Gorgeous!

Felted Cat Cave by Giovanna-Montalbetti on www.livingfelt.com/blog

Giovanna is felting with us all the way from Spain! She felted over a resist from the wet felting a slipper kit and also over a ball. In late December of last year she wet felted this Cat Cave for her beloved Oni.

“He always loved water and flowers, so I tried to evoke a kind of Monet water lilies sort of look. This was the last thing I was able to do for my cat as he passed away on February. He meant the world to me. In this project I first used the Ball Brause Sprinkler Tool. I also used the Emerald forest pack for the leaf border decoration and for the pale green highlights in the water.”

Cozy Felted Cat Cave!

Felted Cat Cave by Terri Brigham Featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

TERRI BRIGHAM shared her very first wet felting adventure…resulting in this awesome felted cat cave! 
It weighs 6.5 ounces and measures 16″ across. She started with a 20″ cardboard resist. Terri used Baltic Merino Top as the outer layer and needle felted the details of the mice and cheese, with blanket stitching around the opening. Great Work!

This was my first attempt at wet felting and I didn’t know which wools to use so I just picked colors that I liked.  The first layers ( the inside color)  were done in Felting & Needle Felting Wool: New Zealand Corriedale Wool – Ice, then I used Merino Top Baltic Multi Colored for the top layers. the mice were needle felted on after it was all done using  MC-1™ Merino Cross Batt –- Blue Frost  and small scraps of black and pink( inside ear) and the cheese was made from some orange wool that I had.  the cardboard that I used was 20 inches across. After felting the project was approx 16.5 across. I would start with a bigger circle next time or use wool that doesn’t shrink quite as much as it was a tight fit for a larger cat.

Great Job … especially for her first wet felted piece!
If you are wanting to wet felting a cat cave, consider using CW-1 Core Wool for the base layer
or MC-1 Merino Cross Batts. The batts will lay out easily, evenly, and quickly!
Plus, they will felt up nicely for a firm base to your cat cave 🙂
