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!”

It has been a felty-full week at LF!
Last Saturday, we had full workshop for needle felting simple animals. We had 11 bunnies and a fox … missed a few pics, but here is a glimpse at our fun bunch of humans and furry felties!
On Friday, we had a fabulous time Needle Felting Gnomes! What a great job these gals did!!
Did you catch our WOOLY WEDNESDAY BROADCAST?
We had so much FUN visiting with you all! If you missed it…you can still see it in our fb group…AND You can pause it and comment. Your comments will be in line with other comments that came in at the same time!
We answered questions, and gave demonstrations, we gave away fun prizes and did show-n-tells of things made by our community members…it was a blast.
Our plan was to do this once a month…but after this week, we are going to “shoot for” 2x a month. 🙂
Next Wooly Wed. is scheduled for WED, FEB 1st at 2pm CST
Broadcast is in our fb group: LIVING FELT FRIENDS
Megan Nedds shared her most recent and quite spectacular sculpture in our facebook group. It is so fun for us to have seen the inspiration images, help select colors and now see the finished work!
“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.”

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!”

“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.”

Meet “Earth,” Kaylene Slade’s newest creation! She needle felted him using Living Felt Merino Cross Batting Core Wool, Blues Pack and Spanish Fiesta.
We love this sweet little guy! You may recognize her creation from her previous work on our blog.
Keep up the fantastic work, Kaylene!
This marvelous needle felted sloth was made by Clarissa Hernandez of Austin, Texas!
She made him for her boyfriend because his favorite animal is the three toed sloth.
This was quite an ambitious project considering she is a brand new needle felter, but she did such a great job!
Clarissa had everything she needed thanks to her Living Felt Studio Builder Pack 2.
Thank you for sharing your wonderful creation with us, Clarissa! Your boyfriend looks like he LOVED it! We hope to see more!
