We find them especially suitable for beads, jewelry, sculptural elements, vessels and even hats. If they are to be used on items that will be handled a great deal, we suggest it be something you can hard felt, otherwise softly felted items from these short fibers would have a higher tendency to pill.

Ingridi Kasitooblogi Felt Aquarium Mixed Media

This beautiful work by Ingridi Käsitööblogi was an exploration and adventure.

She was working on an art challenge and chose the theme “Aqua” when the inspiration came
to create coral reefs. She began with crocheting, and later decided on an oval shaped felted bag.
We love the incorporation of hand-stitching and beading as well.

These little brooches are each a work of art in themselves. We love how
the variations in the color of the felt coincide with the stitching and beadwork.
BTW – this pic actually came from the Bead Lust Blog, she purchased these from Chad
~ we recommend any of Chad’s books!

Felted Necklace — A Perfect Gift!

A lovely woodland felt necklace by Helen Wilby, Carmel Valley, CA

My peace felt partner is from Michigan so I made her this necklace. I made it of merino wool in woodland colors since I think of woods when I think of Michigan, and I love the peacefulness of all the trees growing when you walk through the woods.

In between the felt beads are little stones of Kambaba jasper which is supposed to soothe nerves and ease the wearer’s mental state. It is believed to bring balance and relaxation, and like all jaspers, it is a stone of protection and grounding.
It was made with love – so when it is worn it should feel like a hug from the universe.


This is a wonderful and elegant felt necklace by Tatiana of Latvia.

 “I’ve been needle felting for about two years and the more I do the more I like it :). I love receiving positive feedback from my Etsy customers, it is very motivational and inspiring to see that my creations can be found all over the world. I hope that someday, I will have time for larger and more demanding projects and will be able to hold my own exhibition.
