A HUGE Congratulations to Suzanne Cabrera Towry for her award and recognition of truly inspiring art work!
“Yippee. Proud to report I received an award of 3rd place for 2-dimensional art at the Spring Art Fest exhibit in my community. This was my first juried exhibit. Thank you Marie and all my friends at Living Felt… I created this with Living Felt’s amazing Merino Top and Tussah Silk colors. I couldn’t have done it without you. I learn so much from all of you!”

We love the perspective in this piece!
“Happy weekend everyone! My latest piece, “Conversations by the Campfire” 18″ x 24″. Inspired by John Muir and President Theodore Roosevelt’s historic camping trip under the stars, where John would persuade the president to save and protect more land for our national parks. :)”

This is sure to become a cherished family heirloom.
“Grandma and grandpa. These are my husband’s grandparents, both of whom have left us. We are having a memorial service for his grandmother this weekend, on their anniversary, so I felted this portrait for my in-laws.”

What a vibrant and inviting country scene!
“Waiting to be framed! This is my second, original felt painting. 12″x12”. 95% LF Merino Top and the other 5% is wool I bought from Amazon. I will never use that stuff again. Base is felt. I couldn’t wait to show you so forgive all the messy edges.”

Beth’s Animal Portraits in Felted Wool are So Stunning! You can definitely see some MC-1 Batting in this pic, background is wool felt.
“I think I’m calling this one finished. This is a rescued pig who passed away, and was the face of the sanctuary.. I did this for the owner and I hope I did her justice.”

This was a great inspiration piece with HOT TIPS shared in our facebook group, THANK YOU, Christine!
“I finally finished this one! I lost my mojo for a couple of weeks, but this piece sat, half done, and waited it out, and now my mojo is back! It’s all Living Felt wool, and the flowers are cut up LF lavender silk hankies!
I did something a little different this time – I wanted to transfer the butterfly onto this piece after the background was done so I dry ironed the entire background, and then ironed on the transfer. It worked great!
The fuzzies were tamed, the needle marks virtually disappeared, and I was left with a nice, flat surface for the transfer! It would be worth trying on your next pet portrait if you want to put in a little background.”

We had so much fun with our two “special guests” on Wooly Wednesday this last week. Isla, age 7 1/2, shared her needle felted emoji and her wet felted fabric that she will sew into a clutch purse. She used MC-1 Batts, curly locks, angelina and more!
Sammie, age 6, shared his needle felted pictures and a work in progress. Notice the outlines on the Mario Brothers pictures, he did these all by himself using the iron on transfer pen and his mom ironed it onto a wool felt sheet. He is in the process of needle felting it. The rainbow is a picture he made for his mom 🙂
Jace, age 11, needle felted this awesome Sponge Bob picture on wool felt. He was not feeling well during our show but his sister Isla brought his picture in and shared it with us for our broadcast 🙂
