Awesome Felt Wall Hanging

Felted Piece by Tanya Cisneros-Conreaux featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog
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.”

– Tanya Cisneros-Conreaux, Texas

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.”

Wet & Needle Felted Picture by Marie Spaulding featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog.

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!

Amazing Animal Sculptures

Needle Felted Horses by Kim Mahlbacher featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

Look at these amazing and lively sculptures!

“Dear LivingFelt, I love your products!

The animal’s basic forms were made from your CW-1 Core Wool. The details in their colored coats were made using your MC-1 Monochrome and MC-1 Earth tone studio packs, and MC-1 Soft Pink was used for their noses and inner ears.

Your wonderful Lincoln Natural Sheep Locks in Natural Chipmunk, Black, and Gray Smokey were used for the pony’s and donkey’s manes and tails, and the ram’s curls. They are lovely, full and tangle free. I haven’t found this level of quality from any other company. You are my sole resource for wool.

Needle Felted Ram and Donkey by Kim Mahlbacher featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog.

I hand sew groups of locks to make the pony’s and donkey’s manes and tails and needle felt core wool in matching colors over the stitches. The ram’s curls are needle felted in over a core base with white core wool. His horn is handmade ceramic with a wire base needle felted in with your core wool and covered with curls in the center. Eyes are glass.

LivingFelt’s MC-1 Wool was used for all the animal’s eyebrows in the coat color, and black core wool was added on the edge as eye lashes and also on their mouths for soft smiles.

The needles used were your 40, 42, and 36 Triangle and 40 Spiral.

I worked the wool using your Earth Harmony Series 10″ x 15″ Needle Felting Foam, which had held up very well, is easy to clean, and provides a roomy work space.

Thank you again for the quality of your products.

As an artist, using the best helps me to do my best work.
Blessings, Kim”
