Colorful Woodland Purse

Felted Purse by Francesca DeGrandis featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

We love this colorful and well named “Woodland” Purse, it has a great use of locks in the surface design.

“I’m glad I chose colors so carefully, even though that required using a lot of different ones. It was worth the effort because I’m really happy with the results. And I’m grateful Living Felt provides a wide selection, so I can get a lot of different colors all from one place. The button is my drawing laser-engraved on wood.”

Amazing Animal Sculptures

Needle Felted Horses by Kim Mahlbacher featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

Look at these amazing and lively sculptures!

“Dear LivingFelt, I love your products!

The animal’s basic forms were made from your CW-1 Core Wool. The details in their colored coats were made using your MC-1 Monochrome and MC-1 Earth tone studio packs, and MC-1 Soft Pink was used for their noses and inner ears.

Your wonderful Lincoln Natural Sheep Locks in Natural Chipmunk, Black, and Gray Smokey were used for the pony’s and donkey’s manes and tails, and the ram’s curls. They are lovely, full and tangle free. I haven’t found this level of quality from any other company. You are my sole resource for wool.

Needle Felted Ram and Donkey by Kim Mahlbacher featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog.

I hand sew groups of locks to make the pony’s and donkey’s manes and tails and needle felt core wool in matching colors over the stitches. The ram’s curls are needle felted in over a core base with white core wool. His horn is handmade ceramic with a wire base needle felted in with your core wool and covered with curls in the center. Eyes are glass.

LivingFelt’s MC-1 Wool was used for all the animal’s eyebrows in the coat color, and black core wool was added on the edge as eye lashes and also on their mouths for soft smiles.

The needles used were your 40, 42, and 36 Triangle and 40 Spiral.

I worked the wool using your Earth Harmony Series 10″ x 15″ Needle Felting Foam, which had held up very well, is easy to clean, and provides a roomy work space.

Thank you again for the quality of your products.

As an artist, using the best helps me to do my best work.
Blessings, Kim”

Beautiful Felted Whale Sculpture

Needle and Wet Felted Whale by Wendy Fifield featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog. She used merino silk blend Ocean and silk hankies.

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 Secret World of Gnomes

After seeing the “Secret World of Arrietty” Joyce Hazlerig wanted to make a few secret worlds of her own.

“I love the idea that there might be hidden tiny people just at the bottom of garden. It really got my imagination going.”

She created these little Gnome Homes with Core wool then covered the core with carded merino roving and then used various locks and yarns form the “shrubs” and “bushes’ making little doors, windows and toadstool chimneys.

“I think this would be a great project for specialty Good Pack like Emerald Forest or Fairy Hollow.”
