Brilliant Wool Storage Organization Idea

Wool Storage Idea by Judy Stodola featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

The Awesome Wool Organization that FIRED UP our fb group. Some people are already setting up their own version of this innovative storage system! We love it!

“It was time to organize my small work area! I didn’t have room for plastic storage containers so this is what I came up with! I can see all my wool basically at once.

When I run out of a color, I hang the plastic bag at the end and then I know what to order. All bags are labeled with a sample of wool and color name! The gray bags hanging on the left side hold my wet felting supplies!”

Jan shared a few of her “first attempts” at wet felting, this one made us feel like we had sand between our toes! Check out the detail — down to the shading on the palm trees.

“I’ve fallen in love with felting. … Needle felted, then wet felted, then some additional needle felting finer details”

Beautiful Needle Felted Cross

Needle Felted Cross by Sandy Wogaman featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

“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.”

Fun Needle Felted Cat Brooches

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!”

“I needle felted and wet felted this water lily and lily pad one petal at a time and then sewed it together as they were very felted. I felted each stamen and then waxed them for smoothness. During the wet felting I rinsed with lavender oil! “

This little picture entitled “Happy Camper” was created as a gift for a friend. Felting a small picture with simple detail and design can be quite fun!

Details and texture were added with needle felting and top stitching on the sewing machine. Lower the feed dogs and raise the presser foot so you can stitch freely. Add embroidery also!

Felted Mexican Cross Folk Art

Needle Felted Mexican Cross Folk Art Art by Judy Chapman featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

Judy is quite a prolific felter and you might recall she won an award last year for one of her folk art pieces. This Mexican cross is perfect for our theme this week.

“Hi Everyone! I am really happy with my outcome after studying folk art patterns and going through a few fits and starts with this first folk art project.

I used a 38 Star (mostly) for the first time (thank you to the team that tended to my order recently)!

Very happy.

Hope you enjoy seeing your fiber in this pattern! (Midnight Blue, Violet, Orchid, White, Mandarin.)

… you all are just plain great!”
