“I am sooo excited as someone must know how much I LOVE creating foxes because one of the colours is my absolute fave…Pumpkin Spice!!! I am going to have so much fun with all of my new goodies and of course my designated 8 hours of creative time. Thank you so much Living Felt team.

Also…here’s a new fox! Titled “Mnidoo-waagosh” or… “spirit fox”. He’s mounted on a 8 inch flexi hoop and you’ll see that lovely Pumpkin Spice on his tail. I was inspired by Rachel’s lovely sunset raven for the sky in this piece and wanted to try making my own sunset. The trees in my fox are White Pine and they tend to grow all whispy here in these parts. The arrow in the water portion also signifies that what we do on this land also affects the life in the water.

Thank you so much everyone for all of your support and love on my last piece, making these has felt like coming home to me.”

This is truly an inspired piece, well executed and a great composition.

“Hi everyone! So I finally finished my second Woodland Style piece last night and it’s a big one at 10 inches across. I’ve titled it “Maang (loon) Chases Supper.” There are soooo many Living Felt colours in this one! A couple come from little sample bags I’ve had sent with orders…those are the greatest thing, they’ve got me using colours outside of my comfort zone which is always fun and adding certain colours on my next To Order list! :)”

4 Exceptional Felt Paintings

These are exceptional examples of painting with wool, and we are so thrilled to see what our friends are making with our MC-1 Felting Batts.

Needle Felt Painting by Christine Raak featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

What a beautiful work of art and an exciting day!!

“I’m so excited! I sold my first needle felted wool painting!! All of the wool I used came from Living Felt, and I used a little bit of embroidery floss, too. Plus, this was only the second painting I did! I’ve felted snowmen, fairies, acorns, pumpkins, etc. I even did an Olaf (from the film Frozen)! But I think I found my calling with the paintings. They’re rewarding, relaxing, and satisfying, and when I finish one, I can’t believe it came from my hand. Thank you Living Felt and all of you for the guidance, encouragement, and inspiration!!”

Needle Felt Lake Painting by Suzanne Cabrera Towry featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

The colors and the depth of detail just draw you in! We are ready to put our paddle in the water and head for the opposite shore.

“Made for my sister. It’s a felting painting of a lake we love to visit in the Eastern Sierra Nevada mountains in California.”

Loon Family Needle Felt Painting by Marjorie Talacko featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

A wonderfully captured moment and great color reflections in the water.

“After seeing a loon family while kayaking, I was inspired to needle-felt this loon family. I enjoyed working with the color of the sunset behind and the reflection of the birds in the water.”

Boston Terrier Needle Felt Painting by Pauline Crouse featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog.

A very artful work, you can feel the soul of this little pup!

“My most recent commission titled Lucy. I love doing dog portraits. This is my first Boston. Though not perfect I hope I captured her character. I used a backing of commercial felt with MC-1 and some New Zealand Corriedale.”

Sustainable AND Beautiful “Druid Stone” Wall Hanging ~by Jude Lally

needle felted wall hanging - Druid Stone

New to felting, Jude Lally of Asheville, NC needle felted this beautiful hanging and we can’t wait to see more! What gorgeous work and inspiring insight.

“I’m new to needle felting. A friend gave me some needles and with currently no room to do wet felting i’d thought i’d give it a try. I found I used just one needle in particular and when that snapped I went to our local craft supplies shop but they weren’t able to suggest what needle it might have been. After watching a really helpful video on Living Felt ‘felting needles how to’ Marie referred to the Felting Needles 38 Star as the workhorse – I knew that had to be the one I was looking for. So after ordering and prompt delivery I was off finishing off my Standing Stone Scottish landscape.

Originally from Scotland I’m just drawn to create these little needle felt landscapes – and in the case of the Druid Stone they offer small insights on how to start the day: 

‘The druid stone marks a quite sacred place where generations have sat and soaked in the sanctity of this landscape. Some have given thanks, others have left offerings and some asked for heart felt intentions. The white quartz echoes white druid robes with a hint of golden sickles used to cut down mistletoe from the sacred oak.  These felted hangings are sacred spaces – take a few moments just to clear your head and set your intention for the day!’

One reason I love felt so much is it’s sustainability and so the final stitching was made with my solar powered sewing machine.  Many thanks.”
