Fun Felted Giraffe

Felted Giraffe by Wendy Fifield featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

It seems Wendy is willing to go anywhere with her art to achieve truly unique and interesting pieces! We love this giraffe!

“A giraffe done in my series of animals. Love how the sari threads worked for the mane. Used living felt merino blend for the body [amethyst] and some gastly rough pink roving someone gave me for the spots but it worked on this.”

Realistic Life-Size Squirrel

Felted Squirrel by Tessa Bold featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

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!”

“Cece the White-Fronted Capuchin is finally finished! She is life-sized, with a head and body length of 13 inches, and a height of 13 inches from her hands to the top of her head. She has hand painted glass eyes, and polymer clay fingernails. She took approximately 100 hours to complete. I used many Living Felt merino top colors, Sand Dollar, Mushroom, Mocha, Oak, Milk Chocolate and Bitter Chocolate.”

Beautiful Felted Whale Sculpture

Needle and Wet Felted Whale by Wendy Fifield featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog. She used merino silk blend Ocean and silk hankies.

What a beautiful sculpture and fabulous blend of fiber and found objects!

“Here is my latest project “Whale of a Good Time.” Sometimes you find a perfect piece of wood and this one called out for a tail. I needle felted core wool for the tail over wire so it could be flexible. I then wet felted with merino silk blend Ocean and a variety of green roving adding in locks, wool bits and silk hankies for texture. The tail was then wired onto the driftwood head and glued into place. (I use a fabric glue called E6000) Love all my products from Living Felt!”

Creative Felted Moose Mantle Clock

Felted Moose by Sharon May featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog.

“The most fun I have felting is when I make something silly but functional. If it’s something no one has made before that just makes it is even more fun. So here he is, a mantle clock that is also a moose. He stands by himself but I am thinking of securing him to a base. His antlers are Latte and the body is Espresso Bean.”
