This precious needle felted pup comes to us from Katen Lindenmuth …Jessica says, “It is such a joy to make a likeness of someone’s beloved pet, but the most touching part of my work is seeing the expression (and sometimes tears) on the person’s face when they hold the sculpture in their hands for the first time! Woolly Warm Fuzzies & the art of Kate Lindenmuth”

Jodie Davis of Ohio has been a long time felting friend and customer of Living Felt.
This year, she shared a sentimental note and a needle felt with us via private message and later a post on facebook:
“Just before Thanksgiving this year I had to make the decision to put my 13 1/2 yr old Chessie, Maggie, to sleep.
I had been saving her wonderfully curly hair for some time now ,(ever since I started needle felting) I decided to make an Angel ornament for my tree.
I dug thru my many bags of Merino [batting] and found a very close match and mixed the two together,
( her hair was too short to needle felt alone). I used core wool for the wings. She now hangs on the front of my tree.”
About sharing Sweet Maggie with our mutual felting friends, Jodie said: “I won’t mind if you publish her elsewhere,
it may give someone else incentive. I have already started saving hair from my younger dog:)”
Thank you, Jodie. Maggie will inspire many, many more.
Brandie Rushing’s foster-to-forever daughter needle felted this wonderful Rottweiler on her first try!
They made this great dog to help keep her company in her new home. What a great companion!
They made him out with the Clover Pen Tool, New Zealand Corriedale Black, LIVING FELT CW-1 Core Wool, and MC-1 Merino Cross Batting Goody Bag.
This adorable little dog, named Sweet Annie, was needle felted by Robyn Weaver of California! “This is the fur child of the person I ‘sent to’ for the 2012 Peace Felt event. This was the first time I participated in the Peace Felt project and I had such a great time. I met two wonderful people, both my giver and my receiver. They are wonderful people and we have stayed in touch all through the year.”
Sweet Annie was needle felted using Core Wool, Merino Cross Batt Dark Chocolate, Cinnamon Brown, Bright White, and New Zealand Corriedale Black.
“…I want to tell you how wonderful I think your products are. Over several years now, I have ordered a variety of wool from you and have NEVER been disappointed. I’ve always gotten a warm, sincere feeling every time I’ve dealt with Living Felt.”
Thank you for your kind words, Robyn, and for sharing your charming Sweet Annie with us! She is the perfect mascot for a wonderful Autumn Season!

Roxana Bowman-McKinnie of Florida needle felted this gorgeous English Springer Spaniel from Living Felt wool.
She writes, “This is a large English Springer Spaniel of one of my heart dogs that I lost to cancer in 2009. Made her with multiple needles. The body is core wool. The outside is NZ Corriedale wool and silk blend for the ears.”
This cute little Samoyed dog family was needle felted by Marianne Oberbillig in Wisconsin! This isn’t her first Samoyed, she loves to felt them! She shared that she loves to use New Zealand Corriedale White, especially for all her little doggies!
Thank you for sharing your always sweet creations!
Happy Mother’s Day!
This little one proudly shares his heart!
“Folks who love Corgis REALLY love Corgis, and our corgis love us right back. Ever dog i do pushes my skill level, especially in regards to joining the extremities to the body. Working on these “Valentines” also helped me hone my ‘shape felting’ craft. Hearts are fun and easy, but do take a bit of time.”
