Jan shared a few of her “first attempts” at wet felting, this one made us feel like we had sand between our toes! Check out the detail — down to the shading on the palm trees.
“I’ve fallen in love with felting. … Needle felted, then wet felted, then some additional needle felting finer details”

You would never know that Rachel just picked up needle felting last fall! Check out the realism in this image!
“My first car was a ’74 Gold Super Beatle and I’ve missed it everyday since I sold it. I thought I’d pay a little homage to this fabulous car by doing a wool painting of a ’69 bug. Used lots of different LF MC-1. And had a lot of fun taking a trip down memory lane while working on this cutie.”

This moving felted wall hanging was created by Kristine Callahan of Washington State.
Kristine shares that all of the wool for these works are from Living Felt,
she uses our Merino Tops, mohair locks, Cotswold (aka Santa) locks
The base is wet felted from the Wet Felting Project Batt and the design is wet felted and then applied with needle felting,
or directly needle felted on to “paint” the clothes on the women.
Kristine will wet felt small pieces and then needle felt them on to add dimension and texture.
Kristine also felts small “ropes” to create textures in the baskets and weaving in her felted paintings.
We love her selection of bold and vibrant colors, and her emphasis on the feeling and movement in the scenes.
Kristine did not have an online site or shop to share at this time, but we will update the post at a later time if she sends us one! 🙂
In the meantime, feel free to share and PIN this lovely felted art!
