These bears are so wonderfully vintage in style and beautifully handcrafted! The LF crew is touched and humbled by Kevin’s kind comments, and swooning over these bears 🙂
“It’s been a beary good weekend! Two needled felted teddies and one German mohair. Good therapy for a busy week…
I’ve been making mohair bears for about 20 years but just picked up needle felting about 6 months ago and I Love it. I also love having Living Felt and Marie and crew in my hometown.
Love the store, products and Marie’s inspiration.”
– Kevin Scott Nobles, Texas
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”
– Camelia Wogu, California

Tessa Bold is back in action, check out this wonderful Cardinal!
“Made a life-size cardinal. The cats were not impressed. All Living Felt wool over wire. Glass bead eyes.”
– Tessa Bold, Texas
Fan Art in Felt…You just gotta love it! Sasha really did this character justice!
“Galahad is an enchanted suit of armor and main character of the “Galahad & The Far Off Horizon” comic anthology, created by Hansel Moreno & Julian Adkins. This sculpture is made of wire, wool (mostly Living Felt’s MC-1 Batt in Carnival!), and polymer clay (with a pinch o’ magic, shh)! Capturing the proportions of this character was a fun challenge; I learned a lot from this project!”
– Sasha Blaschka, Texas
We love seeing the before and after photos! Isn’t this a lovely composition?
“I made this scarf using Living Felt’s green silk and I’m going to try cutting it up like Marie showed to make it longer. I love the colours.”
