Pretty Needle Felted Butterfly Picture

Needle Felted Butterfly Picture by Christine Kancler featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

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.”

Felted Projects from Our Young Special Guests

Needle Felted Emoji and Wet Felted Fabric by Isla; Needle Felted Pictures by Sammie featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

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 🙂

This awesome piece showed up in our fb group and we all fell in love! I had to scroll back up to see who made it…turns out, it is our newest Living Felt Fairy – Tanya! She has been with us a few months and picked up needle felting…isn’t this beautiful?!

“My 1st finished piece! Felted on 8×12 100% wool felt. It may end up in a frame or a little clutch purse… not sure.”

Check out this animated and gorgeous giraffe!

“Just finished my giraffe. I used to many many colors and I finger blended many of them for the texture. I also worked upside down from the reference pictures on some of tough spots. Used three different reference pictures. This was so much fun.”

Details and texture were added with needle felting and top stitching on the sewing machine. Lower the feed dogs and raise the presser foot so you can stitch freely. Add embroidery also!
