Wow! What a gorgeous scene Judy has created! This is stunning! A merino prefelt background, picture felted with Merino Tops and other fibers.

“Wooohooo it’s done! This is my first, original, felt painting! This is “Lick Creek.” 12″x12″. Not too shabby for first time stabbing, lol! Thank you Living Felt for the wonderful material to work with. I’m hooked!”

Erin says they will make great gifts while also serving as explorations in design. Each weighs approximately 2oz, starting size is approximately 17.5″ x 15.5″ and they are wet felted over a resist. Erin shares that the resist is shaped to help hold the fibers in place and prevent the from slipping off

We SO fell in love with the gorgeous heron Sandra Atkins needle felted from our fibers, and this one was made just for us. It is a bit of a “relief” with the heron having dimension off the background.

“Cece the White-Fronted Capuchin is finally finished! She is life-sized, with a head and body length of 13 inches, and a height of 13 inches from her hands to the top of her head. She has hand painted glass eyes, and polymer clay fingernails. She took approximately 100 hours to complete. I used many Living Felt merino top colors, Sand Dollar, Mushroom, Mocha, Oak, Milk Chocolate and Bitter Chocolate.”

Gorgeous Felted Hat and Scarf Ensemble

Felted Whalen Hat by Erin and Steve Whalen featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog. They used Merino Top in Bitter Chocolate, Tide pool, Mushroom, Atlantic, and Cornflower.

We LOVE this gorgeous ensemble designed and felted for us by Erin and Steve Whalen of Wisconsin.

Felting is something this lovely couple has learned they like to do together! Erin designed the hat and did the felting; Steve did the fulling, shaping, and finishing. Each piece is so artful, soft and beautiful.

Realistic Needle Felted Cat

Needle Felted Cat by Irene Clark featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

What a beauty is this little kitty?! From the coat to the pose, she looks incredibly real! This was shared in our Living Felt Friends Group! Irene does not sell her work, but makes gifts and auction donations for various causes.

“I am fascinated with silver tortie cats, there are so many colors in their beautiful fur. And they have lots of personality. I have finally finished my silver tortie Maine Coon “Silvie”. I used all Living Felt supplies. The core is made with corriedale and the long fur is merino tops.”
