Felting With a Point

Birds of a Feather Exhibit: Blue Heron

Felted Blue Heron by Sandra Atkins featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

Blue Heron, Sandra Atkins

“When we moved to our new house in SC we discovered that the builder put a big ugly electrical box in our hallway. I had been needle felting 3D figures for about 18 months and decided to try a 2D wall hanging to cover the box.

Since we live on the marsh, a heron was the natural choice for my subject. The electrical box was fairly large and at the time I didn’t have a large foam mat so I had to do the piece in sections.”

prefelted background; all natural fibers (mostly from Living Felt) including core wool, merino top, silk blend and locks, plus some karakul fiber in the grasses from a local VA breeder

Wonderful Needle Felted Angel of Light

Angel of Light by Barb Sackel featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

Angel of Light, Barb Sackel, New York

This week we share with you four different artists who have created art works on similar subjects, using four very different approaches to create a 2D work of fiber art.

This wonderful work art is based on a cross stitch pattern – we think it is a brilliant needle felt rendition!

“Done with my second piece. This one was titled angel of light by lavender and lace. It was a Crosstitch pattern. I had some trouble converting the pattern as you can see in the picture.

I used batt, roving, merino top and locks. I used the locks in the ribbon and from a distance it looks like velvet. I wet felted the background with Roving and used Angelina fibers. On to the next……”

Mother and Child Blended Wool Picture

Mother and Child Blended Wool Picture by Yuliya Chayka featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

“Mother and Child”, Yuliya Chayka (in English letters) St. Petersburg, Russia

This week we share with you four different artists who have created art works on similar subjects, using four very different approaches to create a 2D work of fiber art.

“My dear friends!! On December 24, on the eve of the Catholic Christmas, two years ago my daughter Sonya was born!! This is the great Christmas gift) Probably, it’s no coincidence, I managed to finish my new woolen picture “Mother and Child” today!

Merry Christmas to all!”

This amazing “wool picture” is not felted. Yuliya hand blends the wool in small amounts and builds the picture up layer by layer until is framed under glass. She is using small amounts of fine Merino Top in tiny pinches. The process is much like that used for wet felting a picture, but she does not needle felt it or wet felt at all.

This image was shared in our facebook group – and there is a video (albeit in Russian) where she demonstrates her methods.

Lovely Felted Virgin Mary

Felted Virgin Mary by Kimberly Pulli featured on www.livingfelt.com/blogMother Mary, Kimberly Pulli, Pennsylvania

This week we share with you four different artists who have created art works on similar subjects, using four very different approaches to create a 2D work of fiber art.

Kimberly Pulli of Pulli’s Woollies is fast becoming known for her incredible art work purses featuring unique and beautiful faces of women. This lovely Virgin Mary is on a purse that was a gift for her Mother-in-Law. Kimberly wet felts the purse and uses it as a canvas. Her process includes both wet felting and needle felting in stages.

She uses Living Felt MC-1 Batts, Merino Tops, Luster Fibers, Silk Fabrics and other fibers for her textural art works.

We are very excited that Kimberly will come teach a class at Living Felt this summer.

Fun Felted Giraffe

Felted Giraffe by Wendy Fifield featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

It seems Wendy is willing to go anywhere with her art to achieve truly unique and interesting pieces! We love this giraffe!

“A giraffe done in my series of animals. Love how the sari threads worked for the mane. Used living felt merino blend for the body [amethyst] and some gastly rough pink roving someone gave me for the spots but it worked on this.”

– Wendy Fifield, Canada
