Fan Art in Felt…You just gotta love it! Sasha really did this character justice!
“Galahad is an enchanted suit of armor and main character of the “Galahad & The Far Off Horizon” comic anthology, created by Hansel Moreno & Julian Adkins. This sculpture is made of wire, wool (mostly Living Felt’s MC-1 Batt in Carnival!), and polymer clay (with a pinch o’ magic, shh)! Capturing the proportions of this character was a fun challenge; I learned a lot from this project!”

What a bright little tribute to Alice in Wonderland!
“Here’s a little Cheshire Cat inspired by the illustration from the Peck Aubry Alice paper doll set. He’s 3 1/2″ long and 2 1/2″ high. He was mainly worked from core wool, then striped with roving. I used a reversible needle to gently, quickly pull bits along the stripes to smooth over for a more natural look.”

Doesn’t this bring back memories?

What a perfect Snoopy in every way!
“I just want to say how much I love Living Felt’s wonderful CX-2 BRIGHT White Felting Wool: WINTER WHITE! I’ve been yearning for a true white roving and they delivered not only a beautiful white color, but also a great texture that felts like a dream! I couldn’t have made Snoopy like this without it! Thank you Living Felt!”

RRRaaaaarrrrrr!!!! We love this so much!! 🙂 What a marvelous creation and brilliant, lively detail!
“My tribute to Where the Wild Things Are. I used Living Felt pre-felt batt for the base & added merino cross colors. The figures are core wool covered in merino cross. To give an idea of size, Max is the height of a Coke can. Hope you like it!!!”

What a fabulous felt rendition of this digital character!
“My daughter is graduating from medical school this weekend. She has wanted me to make her this alligator since her first year there. She loved this N64 game as a kid, and always thought the alligator was adorable. I finally worked up the nerve to start, I am very pleased with the results!
The alligator from the N64 video game
I used core wool for the interior, MC-1 batt for the backpack, and NZ Corriedale for the top colors, Living Felt needles and lots of sweat and anxiety!
Giving her this alligator as a gift seems a bit silly in light of her accomplishment, but I know he will be loved, and she will always have a little piece of me with her no matter where her path leads.”

“Someday we’ll find it
The rainbow connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me.”
“Kermit was made by the lovely Mom and Daughter team, Kimberly and Ashley at Best Day Ever Design on etsy.
A friend of mine used to sing me The Rainbow Connection in Kermit’s voice, and as a special present, he looked for a felted Kermit online and commissioned the balloon to be a rainbow. Imagine my delight & surprise when he showed up…made of our own MC-1 wool!”

“This is the minion I felted when I was lacking inspiration to do something original! He’s about 3” tall. Because I usually do wildlife and dogs all my wool is natural colors so I borrowed the blue and yellow from my friend Michele Kelly who had bought the Living Felt studio pack of primary colors ( or the Holiday pack?) and I started with core wool so I didn’t use too much of her colors.
I also want to tell you how much the birds appreciate your lovely core wool! This spring when I noticed the wild birds collecting twigs for their nest building I put some big tufts of the core wool out for them, I attached it to the branches of my jasmine vine using clothes pins. It took a while for them to discover it but once they did it was a big hit. They took it all and I’ve since put out a few more handfuls of it for them. They pull on the fibers until they get as much as they can hold and fly off with it. Their babies will have very cozy nests!
My best to everyone at Living Felt!”
