Felted Bowl by Becky Sullivan-Ollinger featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

What a lovely gift and perfect for the season!

“Just finished making this bowl for the lovely lady who has been selling my silly pumpkins in her wonderful gallery the last 4 weeks. I have made 18 and sold 12, and she is not taking one penny for herself. She deserves so much more for her generosity, but I hope she will be happy with this little token of my gratitude.”

Artful Wet Felted Rock Pillow

Wet Felted Rock Pillow by Liz DeVree featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

A gorgeous work of art, function and fiber!

“I have always loved rocks so when I found out how easy it was to wet felt rocks from wool I decided to use them to make a pillow. The moss is embroidered on.

I used the wet felting batt to make a core for the rocks and various merino colors for the outside of the rocks.

Thank you for the inspiring, encouraging messages you send with each of your orders!”

Scary-Cute Needle Felted Ghouls and Mummies

Needle Felted Gargoyle by Kimberly Czar featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

These are so original and oh so cute!

“I thought I’d try something a little different for Halloween this year. These were so much fun to make! I used floral wire for the infrastructure and Living Felt’s Merino [Cross] wool for the sculpting with some polymer clay for teeth and bone. I bend the wire legs at the bottom so I can staple them down to the birch base, and then felt over them so the staples don’t show.”

Needle Felt Rendition of Frankenstein

Felted Frankenstein by Cherie Davidson featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

We love this wooly rendition of Frankenstein! Created by the talented Cherie Davidson! She has really found her niche in felting custom art dolls.

“I’d like to share my latest little guy with you all… meet “The Monster.” He stands 15-3/4″ tall, and is solid wool (no armature). His hair is suri alpaca. I used size 38 needles mostly, but finished and detailed with 42. Everything except his green jacket and the touches of raw wounds/scars are made with Living Felt Monochrome Studio Pack.

The light gray gave him a great pallor, and the heathered gray blend made terrific “metal” staples and neck bolts. The light blue-gray was perfect for a not quite right/sickly shading of his skin. His jacket is a blend I hand carded to get a deep, dirty green. I used some of the black from the studio pack to get the deep tones. He was a joy to create!”

Fun Needle Felted Fall Projects

Felted Pumpkin by Kimberly Czar featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

What a perfect Jack-O-Lantern!!

“I have fallen behind on my Fall felting this year, but I finally finished my first Jack-O’Lantern. He’s made from Living Felt’s Merino wool [MC-1]. Pumpkin Spice, Manderine and Black Onyx. The stem is a cutting from a twisty vine. I collect them just for this reason. I tried to step up my technique from last year by doing this in layers to get a more 3 dimensional effect, instead of just applying the face on top of the finished pumpkin.”

Needle Felted Pumpkins and Scarecrow by Barb Hoffman featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

We love this little scarecrow and his harvest, and we LOVE hearing of friends felting together!! 🙂

“A few months ago, a dear friend introduced me to needle felting and I’ve been felting ever since. I enjoy getting together on a regular basis with my felting friends so we can help each other with our felting techniques, talk about our Living Felt supplies, and even have a “show and tell” where we share our latest felting creations. Since each of my needle felted sculptures is crafted with love, I include a felted heart on the bottom of each one so the person who receives it knows that it comes with heartFELT appreciation.”
