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
Aren’t these lovely?! How about the bright white one?! Wow!
“These little ones are off to find a new home. Decided to take the plunge and try selling some of my creations in a local museum gift shop. All of the felting is done with Living Felt wool!”
– Becky Lynn, Pennsylvania

Needle Felting Fairy Tale Pumpkins Kit
Yes, that is right! You can make TWO of these fabulous fairy tale pumpkins with our kit. OR you can make more tiny ones, OR you can make one GIANT one 🙂 you get to decide!!
The truly lovely Virginia Flowers and her absolutely fabulous felted pumpkins – she started with our kit!
What an awesome sculpture!
“Winnie the warty witch, needlefelted with wetfelted clothes, stripy sock reused for her jumper and stockings. Casting spells by rubbing her whiskers and has a very unwitchy plum lock, in her hair.”
Kathleen Anne James, United Kingdom
These are so original and oh so cute!
“I thought I’d try something a little different for Halloween this year. These were so much fun to make! I used floral wire for the infrastructure and Living Felt’s Merino [Cross] wool for the sculpting with some polymer clay for teeth and bone. I bend the wire legs at the bottom so I can staple them down to the birch base, and then felt over them so the staples don’t show.”
– Kimberly Czar, Massachusetts
What a sweet energy these two have 🙂
“I just wanted to share this little Tricker Treater made with LF Onyx batt wool and vintage button.
The mummy boy is felted core wool with bleached recycled sari ribbon wrappings.”
– Joyce Hazlerig, Texas

The Mummy lives!!
“Wire frame, covered in core wool, 32 gauge armature wire for hands, one craft bobble eye and one glass eye. Meet my mummy.”
– Patti Bronecky, California
Sharen Johnson of Rutledge, TN felted these amazing Jack-O-Lanterns!
She needle felted them out of CW-1 core wool and topped them
with dyed Merino top wool.
“I have been listing my specialty pincushion/tape measure novelties on www.sharryJo.etsy.com in the past
and they have been well received so I am excited to be back to felting once again.
I am so grateful for Living Felt’s quality products. They bring out the creative gene in me.
Next is a stackable pumpkin pincushion and tape measure. Meet Meanie, Miney and Mo.
Meanie is on the bottom and is perplexed with the heavy weights above.
Miney is holding up well and a little better natured,
but Mo is oblivious to all below and enjoying the view from the heights.
They are a pin cushion also and entirely out of Living Felt Merino wool.
The tape is hidden under the leaves on Miney and is retracted by squeezing his sides.
He really enjoys that as he considers it a hug.
I am limited to dial-up internet so I cannot enjoy the video workshops to give me ideas for other felting.
I have mainly just gotten an idea in my head and grab my 3 types of needles
and poke away until my idea becomes a reality.
What a fun way to vent anxieties! These 3 projects were mainly done
with the #36Triangle needle, starting with the #38Star on the core wool.
I didn’t add armature in any of these 3. They really didn’t need it and can stand alone on the felt base.
I make sure the core wool is felted pretty solidly. I sometimes add
marbles for stability embedded in the base.”
