What gorgeous needle felted horses!
“This handsome gray is ready to join the herd. I love felting animals, especially horses. I use a wire armature, glass eyes, and polyclay hooves to add life to my wool. When I use batts that have a variegated color, like the grays that I used, it naturally gives a dapple pattern to the horse’s hide.
Thanks for all you provide,”
Inna’s work is beautiful and alive!
“I’ve dabbled with needle felting before, but I used what I could find in local craft stores and wasn’t too impressed with the results.
My main focus was embroidery until I saw the incredible works of Dani Ives on Instagram. That propelled me to give needle felting another chance. I’ve started looking for online suppliers and, when I came across Living Felt website, it was like a dream come true.
I love how easy it is to navigate within the site, the variety and quality of products you offer, your YouTube tutorials and even the business cards you enclose with each order with a motivational quote on the back.
For this horse portrait I used your MC-1 batts from studio packs, which is incredibly easy to use and for horse’s mane I used some of your natural New Zealand Corriedale roving – it has such a beautiful texture! Also, I love the needles, especially green and yellow. It makes such a huge difference when adding some small details to use them.”

Lisa Bondurant needle felted this sweet horse mobile with a combination of New Zealand Corriedale, MC-1 Felting Batts, and wire wrapping.
“I was recently asked to make a special horse mobile for a customer’s daughter. The customer asked for a replica of her daughter’s favorite horse. Meet Comanche.”
Lisa’s customer’s expecting daughter had ridden Comanche in competition.
“Each horse in the mobile was similar to the horses her daughter had owned, but Comanche being her favorite.”

Felted Bird Mask
Needle Felted Horse
These fun pieces were felted by Susan Nolte of Portland, OR. I love the colors you choice for each, Susan! The mask is made from NZ Corriedale Turquoise, Marigold and Lemon. The Horse is NZ Corriedale Eggplant, Nutmeg, Raspberry , and White. Gorgeous! And I’d love to hear if you made the mask for a specific event. . . Who got to show it off?
“[The mask is] my second needle felting project. [A] sort of bird head felted over a light weight wire frame made from an old fireplace screen. Waiting for more supplies!”
