“In 2012, my mom and stepfather married in Hawaii … there was one moment where we were sitting outside at a restaurant, and one of these little goofballs bounced up to us, cocked its head, and just gave us the most endearing little look. We had a good laugh from that character, considering we were also watching roosters chase each other up and down the adjacent golf course. Little dinosaurs, they are … It’s a sort of ‘stylized realism,’ a combo of realistic design and cartoon-ish simplicity”

“One of my favorite things as a graduate student in Wildlife and Fisheries science was to go spotlighting owls at night. I got to see many of these little guys, and learned to hear and mimic their song. I don’t get in the field much now, but I love these adorable native birds.”

“When we moved to our new house in SC we discovered that the builder put a big ugly electrical box in our hallway. I had been needle felting 3D figures for about 18 months and decided to try a 2D wall hanging to cover the box.
Since we live on the marsh, a heron was the natural choice for my subject. The electrical box was fairly large and at the time I didn’t have a large foam mat so I had to do the piece in sections.”

Marjolein made her base shapes out of core wool, and then wrapped then in 19.5 micron prefelt, they look wonderful!
“My mom’s present is well on its way! Thank you LF for Lilly white prefelt! It’s that wonderful, I don’t want to use it!”
– Marjolein Wolverson, UK
What fabulous little night lights these would make!
“Wet felting projects done this past weekend thanks to a prompt order of lily white merino top and some white tussah silk from Living Felt–thanks guys!!”

You can make your own felted snowman using our Needle Felting Snowman and Ornaments Kit. This kit is packed so full of FUN that we can barely get it closed!! It includes enough wool and other supplies for 1 snowman and two ornaments, or 2 snowmen or more ornaments!
Such delightful fall creations and so wonderfully felted!
“Here’s my first attempt at needle felting…even though it’s still warm here, fall is in the air! Made from LF core wool, MC-1batts (including fairytale pumpkin) and LF corriedale :)”
-Susan VanLith, California
This irresistible Alpaca was needle felted by Sandi Atkins in South Carolina. She sent it to us as a surprise gift from the Alpaca fibers she won during one of our recent Wooly Wednesday broadcasts, and MC-1 plus CW-1 Core Wool. We love him!

Wow — He looks so real! 🙂
“A life-size squirrel made from Living Felt wools. Core wool over a wire armature and then three different colors of Corriedale for his coat. And of course my favorite horse hair whiskers! I gave him a little wire chest loop so he can hang on a nail like this or hang on a wall like he’s climbing. A great way to display him to keep him away from the cats and dogs who are already freaking out over” there’s a squirrel in the house!”
