“I am sooo excited as someone must know how much I LOVE creating foxes because one of the colours is my absolute fave…Pumpkin Spice!!! I am going to have so much fun with all of my new goodies and of course my designated 8 hours of creative time. Thank you so much Living Felt team.

Also…here’s a new fox! Titled “Mnidoo-waagosh” or… “spirit fox”. He’s mounted on a 8 inch flexi hoop and you’ll see that lovely Pumpkin Spice on his tail. I was inspired by Rachel’s lovely sunset raven for the sky in this piece and wanted to try making my own sunset. The trees in my fox are White Pine and they tend to grow all whispy here in these parts. The arrow in the water portion also signifies that what we do on this land also affects the life in the water.

Thank you so much everyone for all of your support and love on my last piece, making these has felt like coming home to me.”

This is truly an inspired piece, well executed and a great composition.

“Hi everyone! So I finally finished my second Woodland Style piece last night and it’s a big one at 10 inches across. I’ve titled it “Maang (loon) Chases Supper.” There are soooo many Living Felt colours in this one! A couple come from little sample bags I’ve had sent with orders…those are the greatest thing, they’ve got me using colours outside of my comfort zone which is always fun and adding certain colours on my next To Order list! :)”

4 Exceptional Felt Paintings

These are exceptional examples of painting with wool, and we are so thrilled to see what our friends are making with our MC-1 Felting Batts.

Needle Felt Painting by Christine Raak featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

What a beautiful work of art and an exciting day!!

“I’m so excited! I sold my first needle felted wool painting!! All of the wool I used came from Living Felt, and I used a little bit of embroidery floss, too. Plus, this was only the second painting I did! I’ve felted snowmen, fairies, acorns, pumpkins, etc. I even did an Olaf (from the film Frozen)! But I think I found my calling with the paintings. They’re rewarding, relaxing, and satisfying, and when I finish one, I can’t believe it came from my hand. Thank you Living Felt and all of you for the guidance, encouragement, and inspiration!!”

The colors and the depth of detail just draw you in! We are ready to put our paddle in the water and head for the opposite shore.

“Made for my sister. It’s a felting painting of a lake we love to visit in the Eastern Sierra Nevada mountains in California.”

Loon Family Needle Felt Painting by Marjorie Talacko featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

A wonderfully captured moment and great color reflections in the water.

“After seeing a loon family while kayaking, I was inspired to needle-felt this loon family. I enjoyed working with the color of the sunset behind and the reflection of the birds in the water.”

Boston Terrier Needle Felt Painting by Pauline Crouse featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog.

A very artful work, you can feel the soul of this little pup!

“My most recent commission titled Lucy. I love doing dog portraits. This is my first Boston. Though not perfect I hope I captured her character. I used a backing of commercial felt with MC-1 and some New Zealand Corriedale.”

Needle Felted Blue Heron Felt Painting

Needle Felted Blue Heron Painting by Sandi Atkins featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

This is an incredible piece! The detail and artful presentation is so very captivating.

“I needed a 2′ by 3′ wall hanging and decided to do a great blue heron, since we live along the marsh in South Carolina. Because it is so large, I didn’t wet felt the background but needle felted the entire piece on prefelt. I used many colors of merino top and loved your silk blend that allowed me to make the ‘feathers’ along the neck and wing.”

– Sandi Atkins, South Carolina

Needle Felted Alligator Inspired by a Video Game

Needle Felted Alligator by Laura Davenport featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

What a fabulous felt rendition of this digital character!

“My daughter is graduating from medical school this weekend. She has wanted me to make her this alligator since her first year there. She loved this N64 game as a kid, and always thought the alligator was adorable. I finally worked up the nerve to start, I am very pleased with the results!

The alligator from the N64 video game

I used core wool for the interior, MC-1 batt for the backpack, and NZ Corriedale for the top colors, Living Felt needles and lots of sweat and anxiety!

Giving her this alligator as a gift seems a bit silly in light of her accomplishment, but I know he will be loved, and she will always have a little piece of me with her no matter where her path leads.”

Thank you!!

Beautiful and Alive Needle Felted Horse Portrait

Horse Portrait by Inna Carlson featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

Inna’s work is beautiful and alive!

“I’ve dabbled with needle felting before, but I used what I could find in local craft stores and wasn’t too impressed with the results.

My main focus was embroidery until I saw the incredible works of Dani Ives on Instagram. That propelled me to give needle felting another chance. I’ve started looking for online suppliers and, when I came across Living Felt website, it was like a dream come true.

I love how easy it is to navigate within the site, the variety and quality of products you offer, your YouTube tutorials and even the business cards you enclose with each order with a motivational quote on the back.

For this horse portrait I used your MC-1 batts from studio packs, which is incredibly easy to use and for horse’s mane I used some of your natural New Zealand Corriedale roving – it has such a beautiful texture! Also, I love the needles, especially green and yellow. It makes such a huge difference when adding some small details to use them.”
