Needle Felting Fun: Needle Felted Swans

 

What a gorgeous pair, momma and baby swan! We love how elegant and graceful they are.
Beautiful work by Jo Johnson of Stagecoach, NV!

“Hi Marie,  I’m sending two photos of the mother and baby swan I made for Easter this year. I needle-felted them from alpaca fiber (from our two white alpacas Nicolas and Buster) and from a friend’s fawn-colored alpaca, Earth Angel. I stole a couple of feathers off a kitty toy for the baby’s wings! 🙂 I’ll soon remove the egg from the baby and finish felting him so I can display them year ’round.

This was my first project–I actually have not yet used the dog kit I bought for this–but your other great kits and beautiful supplies have helped me a lot in learning techniques and I am now also making beautiful alpaca scarves!

Thanks!  Jo

PS Boy, a finger protector would be a great thing to have!! next order!”

Wow, this hat is truly amazing! I can almost feel the textures just by looking at it in a photo! You two definitely ARE artists!  Try and snag a few more photos before those next hats fly out the door!

“My husband, Terry Holtz and I, Dena Kotka-Holtz bought the Needle
felting foam
, 36 gauge felting needles and a felting needle attachment for our
sewing machine
so that we could make felted  “Rocky Mountain Paca Hats”. We

loved the felting foam that we could shape into sizes we need for those hard to
reach areas.
We have made several of these beautiful “Rocky Mountain Paca Hats”, and as
soon as we finish one, it gets sold. I was fortunate enough to have taken
photos before they sold.
The “Rocky Mountain Paca Hats” are made from the wool of our very own
alpacas. I really enjoy making them and coming up with new designs for each hat.
It feels like a work of art.”

Nancy Shelton needle felted this cute little guy using alpaca fibers courtesy of her own animals at ‘Alpaca on the Rocks’, in Weed, CA. Too cute Nancy! And I love the natural tone of that alpaca!

 

“I use Living Felt needles and biodegradable foam– love that.  I make creatures of my own design out of alpaca fiber. The eyes also are fiber. This one I call Elwood.”
