This little felted runner would brighten up any room!
“Spring is in the air here in PA (still snow on the ground from the Nor’easter though). I made this table runner with the beautiful Merino Top… from Living Felt.”

Felting With a Point
This was a great inspiration piece with HOT TIPS shared in our facebook group, THANK YOU, Christine!
“I finally finished this one! I lost my mojo for a couple of weeks, but this piece sat, half done, and waited it out, and now my mojo is back! It’s all Living Felt wool, and the flowers are cut up LF lavender silk hankies!
I did something a little different this time – I wanted to transfer the butterfly onto this piece after the background was done so I dry ironed the entire background, and then ironed on the transfer. It worked great!
The fuzzies were tamed, the needle marks virtually disappeared, and I was left with a nice, flat surface for the transfer! It would be worth trying on your next pet portrait if you want to put in a little background.”

It is so fun to explore what you can make with a bit of MC-1 Batting, Wool Felt and a Transfer Pen!
After transferring the wing pattern from printer paper to the felt with the Transfer Pen, the wings were needle felted onto the Wool Felt and then cut out.
The body was needle felted and slits cut into the sides. I used pins to plan the wing placement and overlap, then wings inserted into the slits. Hide the insertion points and join to the body more securely by needle felting wool between the wings and the body.
For this Elephant Hawk Moth, I first wet felted Fuchsia Merino Top and cut out the wing shape. then the accent colors were needle felted on top.
