“I just finished my latest 2 Halloween kitties. The black & white one is a commission of a real kitty named Eddie. Both are solid Living Felt wool mounted on a slice of cedar cut on our property. Eddie has real whiskers.”

What a lovely gift and perfect for the season!
“Just finished making this bowl for the lovely lady who has been selling my silly pumpkins in her wonderful gallery the last 4 weeks. I have made 18 and sold 12, and she is not taking one penny for herself. She deserves so much more for her generosity, but I hope she will be happy with this little token of my gratitude.”
Becky Sullivan-Ollinger, Washington
What a perfect seasonal accent!
“My Autumn sky bowl. I used my mc-1 Orange, foliage and yellow and majestic blue. Wet felted with dry felted purple spiral needle detail, leaf and acorn.”

Wet Felting Over a Resist!
In this free video tutorial, Marie shows her methods for wet felting over a resist … step by step.
This two part video will serve as a great primer or starter project for wet felting a pair of slippers, a hat, or even a cat cave!
Start small and learn with simple projects :O)
For this little project we used Living Felt MC-1 Felting Batts, Olive Oil Soap, Bamboo Mat, Felting Mesh, and a Rigid Mat.
Needle Felting Fairy Tale Pumpkins Kit
Yes, that is right! You can make TWO of these fabulous fairy tale pumpkins with our kit. OR you can make more tiny ones, OR you can make one GIANT one 🙂 you get to decide!!
The truly lovely Virginia Flowers and her absolutely fabulous felted pumpkins – she started with our kit!
What an awesome sculpture!
“Winnie the warty witch, needlefelted with wetfelted clothes, stripy sock reused for her jumper and stockings. Casting spells by rubbing her whiskers and has a very unwitchy plum lock, in her hair.”
Kathleen Anne James, United Kingdom
This wet felted necklace is simply a very long felted cord, the ends were felted together to make it into an continuous loop, and hand-spun art yarn was worked into the felting process.
Both the yarn and felt cord were made by Marie using our Autumn Leaves Specialty Designer Pack.
We have 12 Specialty Designer packs to choose from. Maybe you will find one that you would like to felt with!
