We remember one of Gail’s first needle felts from 2010, it was a darling baby mobile. We love seeing her felting now 5years later! She used CW-1 Core Wool and MC-1 Felting Batts + Sculpey!
“I was inspired because my daughter has a anime convention coming up where she sells her crochet crafts. I make felted creatures to sell there with her…It keeps me busy wile she is off having fun.this is the first one like this I’ve tried. Normally I only use felt, but I thought it would be fun to combine sculpey with it.”

Silke Sordyl is a brilliant artist! For Felted Fairy- Fantasy week she shared a very special character on our facebook page!
“Sencha is the chronicler of the Gieblings people . Sindri and Vila are two brave Gnomes
who set off into the Berberette land to assist the dragon Eldritch on a big adventure.
Sencha is writing down everything he is being told about the adventures.
The Gieblings want to record their adventures for their posterity.”

Jessie Dockins needle felts wonderful animals and pet portraits…and uber sweet gnomes and little fairy like things!
We love “felt gnome” who is also a finger puppet..what a clever design and use of upcycled fabric.
“This mischievous felt gnome wants to bring a smile to your face! This needle felted gnome puppet stands approximately six inches tall. I used repurposed fabric to sew the gnome’s body and needle felted his face. Needle felting is a technique in which a barbed needle is used to sculpt loose wool into shapes. As you can see in the photos, the felt gnome is an unique finger puppet- you can make him walk and dance by putting your fingers in the holes in his legs.”
Jessie uses Living Felt MC-1 Batts on her felted creations and she has an etsy shop where you get a felted gift for you or a loved one. WE DID! We own some of her Love Gnomes…they are pure magic! xoxo

Shelly Schwartz makes some pretty darn sweet sculptures out of polymer clay and more recently has been applying her skills and creativity to needle felting. We love this needle felted dragon made with Living Felt MC-1 Felting batts!
“I was so impressed by my daughter’s computer drawing of a red dragon, that I felt I must make him into a sculpture.
He was sculpted from true red and mahogany MC 1 batt wool. He has a wire armature throughout his body and wings to help him stand and pose. His teeth were made from polymer clay and he has black glass eyes.
Thank you for the inspiring emails every Saturday. I look forward to seeing what others are creating every week.”
