What shenanigans are these two up to??!
“I just finished my latest 2 Halloween kitties. The black & white one is a commission of a real kitty named Eddie. Both are solid Living Felt wool mounted on a slice of cedar cut on our property. Eddie has real whiskers.”
-Linda Maurer-Wonser, Michigan
What a bright little tribute to Alice in Wonderland!
“Here’s a little Cheshire Cat inspired by the illustration from the Peck Aubry Alice paper doll set. He’s 3 1/2″ long and 2 1/2″ high. He was mainly worked from core wool, then striped with roving. I used a reversible needle to gently, quickly pull bits along the stripes to smooth over for a more natural look.”
Melissa Hoover, California
Doesn’t this bring back memories?
Tracie Zody shared her wonderful little felted picture of Snoopy in our group and pronounced it “done” 🙂

Falkor looks so dazzling with all those beads!
“For character/ fan art, here is Falkor the luck dragon from The Neverending Story. I made this a year ago using bright white merino cross batts and a lot of beads and pearls.”

Yet another truly remarkable needle felted cat by Irene Clark. Her realism is just stunning!
“Here is my new polydactyl red tabby (mackerel) kitty. This is a surprise gift for the owner. The cat is facing some health challenges and my heart breaks for the family that has to go through it. The cat is made on a wire armature, all corriedale, reverse needle, glass eyes. I am terribly nervous about this cat because nobody asked me to make it.”
– Irene Clark, Wisconsin
Incredible realism with a sense of humor! This incredible needle felted sculpture was shared in our fb group by Irene Clark.
“Hi all, here is my new creation — this kitty is frequently spotted under our bird feeders and he take joy in annoying my indoor cats. But outside of that, he is a very sweet fellow smile emoticon:) I called this “What bird?..”
This cat is made from MC-1 batt and gray merino [carbon] (21.5 microns), all from Living Felt. It is felted on wire armature, the feathers are those of real quail, the eyes are glass, hand-painted by me.”
– Irene Clark, Wisconsin
This quirky kitty was needle felted by Susan Ranta of Nebraska!
She felted it using Living Felt Merino Cross Batt Core Wool, Willow, New Zealand Corriedale Black, Red, Mint, and White.
Thank you for sharing your whimsical creation with us, Susan!
It won’t be long, and Halloween will be here. It’s not too early for a little spooky inspiration from Ronda Loyer.
A lone Witch rides across a a full Moon. She leaves her Cauldron brewing to go get that last ingredient for her potion. Wonder what she needs? Fillet of a Fenny snake,
In the caldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder’s fork, and blind-worm’s sting,
Lizard’s leg, and owlet’s wing,—
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.
Double, double toil and trouble;
Picture is Needle Felted of wool on a felt background and comes in a black shadowbox frame. Measures 8 1/2″x 11″
