Julia Maudlin felted this gorgeous piece entitled Open Hearts Window using Living Felt MC-1 Felting Batts in True Red, with other colors of merino top then added wire and bead work and mounted it on a wood base and dowel. It measures 18″ tall and is currently on display at the Dallas Craft Guild Valentine exhibit “Tea for Two” which runs through 02-14-2015.
Julia can be reached through her website, but says she does not keep her felt works up to date on the site as she prefers to show them in person.

Picture Perfect Valentine Garland – but this photo looks like a postcard!
“This is a piece that I have done for Valentines Day! It is a felted heart garland made out of merino wool.
I used the technique of using a cookie cutter to make these hearts. I’ve made many ball garlands
but I thought for Valentines Day it would be really fun to make one
out of hearts. Hope you enjoy!”

“I don’t really have a purpose to my creations, I just enjoy watching the different creations and personalities emerge as I add or remove different parts. I have learned that sometimes you just have to walk away from a project and return later in order to get a new perspective. If you think the project is not turning out the way you wish, take a break and come back later to see it from a different view.”
