Jan shared a few of her “first attempts” at wet felting, this one made us feel like we had sand between our toes! Check out the detail — down to the shading on the palm trees.

Hi Marie, Home from Big Sable Point Lighthouse in Ludington, Michigan.

Michigan Lighthouse by Pam Ruiter featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

I now have internet so I can send the picture of the one felted sheep that I made while at the lighthouse. Getting a jump on fall craft shows and this sheep are big sellers for the holidays.

I can not wait to start on my Little Pokey Hedgehog.

Truly,

What a fantastic use of color and texture! This vessel is truly a work of art! You can see her use of luxury fibers including Tussah Silk, Cocoons and Silk Hankies.

“I was off from work for a total of 5 days. So of course I felted every breathing moment. Experimenting and just having creative fun”

Felted Mermaid by Sonja Weeks Oswalt featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

Sonja shared hers as well! We think she is a fairy mermaid!

“I just finished this mermaid doll. She is about 12” tall and is fully poseable, including her fingers. She is core wool covered with flesh tone Mc batt, and materials from the fairy artist pack. Her hair features your amazing Teasdale locks. She is hand beaded with hundreds of mixed glass beads, swarovski crystals, and natural stones on her bra, tail, and wired into her hair.”

Susan Beal in Vermont needle felts incredibly lifelike bird sculptures. She shared that she combines her wool with our CW-1 Core Wool and colors of our MC-1 Batts.

Some of those colors include: Black, Storm, Birch, Driftwood and Clay, Blueberry,
Winter Blue and Chicory.

“I’ve tried other company’s wool and keep returning to yours
for my birds because it felts so well and is so clean and uniform,
and there is a terrific range of colors. I also use your needles
a single #36 triangle is my workhorse (I go through a lot of these!),
along with the #38 star needles in the 10 needle felting tool
and the Clover tool.”

and for sale in her etsy shop.

“They’re all life sized, and because I strive make them as lifelike
and realistic as possible, I’ve had to keep developing new techniques
along the way. It’s immensely gratifying.

Thanks for all your passion, love and good vibes!”

Best wishes,
Susan, Vermont
