“My son is being ordained into the Lutheran church next month. Ministers often wear crosses when they preach, so I needle-felted one with Living Felt merino cross. The wet-felted rope has a needle-felted closure. I very much enjoy both processes, and usually do both in each of my projects. Thank you, Marie, for all the videos and all the information you so graciously share.”

What a handsome little bunny, don’t you want to hug him?
“Don’t let this guy in your carrot patch! LF core, the brown is alpaca with a thin layer of winter white, details and carrots MC-1 batts, and the carrot tops are locks.”

These fun cat faces really made our day!!
“Attached is a photo of cat face brooches I needle felted with Living Felt products. They are made from your MC-1 Merino cross batt packs: the beach party studio pack, goody pack, purples/berries pack and the fall fun pack.
Your Merino cross batts are so easy and fast to sculpt with. I had a great time figuring out what color and facial features each cat should have. Determining what expressions to give them was fun too!
Thank you Living Felt!”

We love the vibrant colors and all of the wonderful detail in this piece…right down to the shading of the birdhouse pole.
“Hello! I made this felt picture called “Kandi’s Garden” during the March snowstorm we received here in Pa. Even though we are surrounded by 18 inches of snow, this picture reminds me that spring is right around the corner! Your wonderful Merino [MC-1 Merino Cross] wool was used to make it.

We had so much fun with our two “special guests” on Wooly Wednesday this last week. Isla, age 7 1/2, shared her needle felted emoji and her wet felted fabric that she will sew into a clutch purse. She used MC-1 Batts, curly locks, angelina and more!
Sammie, age 6, shared his needle felted pictures and a work in progress. Notice the outlines on the Mario Brothers pictures, he did these all by himself using the iron on transfer pen and his mom ironed it onto a wool felt sheet. He is in the process of needle felting it. The rainbow is a picture he made for his mom 🙂
Jace, age 11, needle felted this awesome Sponge Bob picture on wool felt. He was not feeling well during our show but his sister Isla brought his picture in and shared it with us for our broadcast 🙂
It is so fun to explore what you can make with a bit of MC-1 Batting, Wool Felt and a Transfer Pen!
After transferring the wing pattern from printer paper to the felt with the Transfer Pen, the wings were needle felted onto the Wool Felt and then cut out.
The body was needle felted and slits cut into the sides. I used pins to plan the wing placement and overlap, then wings inserted into the slits. Hide the insertion points and join to the body more securely by needle felting wool between the wings and the body.
For this Elephant Hawk Moth, I first wet felted Fuchsia Merino Top and cut out the wing shape. then the accent colors were needle felted on top.
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.”

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.”
