Wow! What a gorgeous scene Judy has created! This is stunning! A merino prefelt background, picture felted with Merino Tops and other fibers.

“Wooohooo it’s done! This is my first, original, felt painting! This is “Lick Creek.” 12″x12″. Not too shabby for first time stabbing, lol! Thank you Living Felt for the wonderful material to work with. I’m hooked!”

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.”

This little picture entitled “Happy Camper” was created as a gift for a friend. Felting a small picture with simple detail and design can be quite fun!

All the fibers were laid out on the base layer, and then the picture was wet felted.

Base layer = Living Felt PF-X Prefelt batt cut to size, MC-1 Batts, Dyed Tussah Silk, Merino Top, Dyed Sheep’s Locks.

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!

She shares that it is 16×20 and is 100% Wool, “almost exclusively” made with Living Felt MC-1 batts. It took 3 weeks to a month working on it during the evenings. This piece was a commission.

“I hand-blend alot, and many of the colors in the picture, here are hand-blended —especially shading. some of it is also layering of 4 or 5 different colors in the same place, just very very thin layers of each so that some colors peek through. I’m not sure there’s much of anywhere on the whole picture that is just one color without extra blending or layering”
