Felting Birds Workshop with Jennifer Field

Felting Birds Workshop with Jennifer Field at Living Felt  http://feltingsupplies.livingfelt.com

We had so much fun in our 2 day felting workshop with Jennifer Field of Maine! We learned great tips and techniques that involved wet felting and needle felting. Jennifer brought wonderful copper feet and hand blown glass eyes that she made herself, and everyone left with a truly fabulous creation! The class was hosted at Living Felt in Austin, TX… and it was wonderful to meet everyone! Guests came from California, Ohio, Oklahoma and various parts of Texas. it was a great weekend…enjoy the pics, and if you get a chance to take this class with Jennifer…take it :)!

One of a Kind Needle Felted Christmas Angels

Needle Felted Angel Dolls

Johanna Koons has a unique and wonderful style for making needle felted dolls…like these to Angels just in time for Christmas. Johanna reports that these angels  “were so fun to make” and they are for sale on her sister’s etsy http://www.etsy.com/shop/OwlsDreams.

“It was such a joy visiting the Living Felt Studio over the summer and hopefully I can visit again soon (I loved Austin!).”

Felted Wall Hanging Land & Sea

Donna Brau is taking her felting passion in new and functional directions. Here’s a lovely example of home decor.

“I just finished this 2.5′ x 3′ land and sea wall hanging using all wool roving from Living Felt. Lately, I’ve moved away from making little critters and people to trying some more ‘unique for me’ items including wine bottle koozies, glass vase elaborations and wall decor. They seem more ‘functional’ and in some ways, more ‘artistic’ for me…but you know a photo never really seems to do these projects justice, because so much of the appeal is tactile – that wonderful textural experience while doing and then the overwhelming instinct to touch a piece when it’s done. I don’t think the photo really catches the depth of this particular piece either though I’m anxious to hang it in my home and enjoy it on a daily basis. Thanks again to Living Felt for providing such wonderful products and amazing customer service!”

Lorraine Rittmeyer, of Sarasota, FL, made lots of these lovely little pins to hand out as Valentine’s!  What a sweet idea –  and they are so beautifully decorated! Thank you for passing this on Lorraine.  And thank you for passing on your love through felt!

“I am an art teacher just starting to work with felt. I made these Valentine pins for my friends. Thought someone might like the idea as well. Living Felt photos give me lots of ideas and make me want to experiment. I want my students to get involved also. Enjoy!”
