It is NO WONDER that Sonja is getting a waiting list for commissions! This little angel just stole our hearts!
“Meet Finn. He is a chi-chinese crested mix. Left at the shelter because his owners thought he was ugly. I think he is awesome.” ~Sonja shared he is no longer at the shelter … now with a friend 🙂

This portrait is nothing short of stunning! Visit our fb friends group for pictures of her work in process.
“My portrait of my Zima is finished. It feels so good to have this almost living memorial. I can pet her 🙂 Thank you Living Felt for the inspiring tutorials. I would never have attempted this without your help.”
– Doris Waschinski, Canada
Isn’t she a beauty?! We just love all that fluff!!
“You all are so nice and I am glad to be in this group of fiber artists …a nice break from finger stabbing ;-}. Here is a commission piece I had trouble giving up but making a new Samoyed now. This girl is made of layers of corriedale and then added fur of different specialty fiber including silk and merino.
She has glass eyes and is about 8″ tall. The core and corriedale wool is from LivingFelt.com and they also carry silk and merino fibers.”
– Melanie Litchfield, Connecticut
Dani Ives is a talented artist who gives time to her craft every day, and what she creates with our MC-1 Batts is beyond stunning! She sells custom pet portraits, her original art and prints on Etsy, plus she teaches classes and inspires thousands daily through her Instagram posts.
“I use Living Felt’s wool batts almost exclusively in my wool paintings. The batts felt so easily, and the high quality allows me to blend colors and control the fibers to create small details that make a huge impact in my fiber art.”
Giovanna is felting with us all the way from Spain! She felted over a resist from the wet felting a slipper kit and also over a ball. In late December of last year she wet felted this Cat Cave for her beloved Oni.
“He always loved water and flowers, so I tried to evoke a kind of Monet water lilies sort of look. This was the last thing I was able to do for my cat as he passed away on February. He meant the world to me. In this project I first used the Ball Brause Sprinkler Tool. I also used the Emerald forest pack for the leaf border decoration and for the pale green highlights in the water.”
FELTED CAT CAVES – FUN FOR KITTY – FUN TO FELT!
Kicking off our FELTED PETS & GIFTS FOR PETS theme this week is a full array of the most brilliantly designed
felted cat caves by Susanne Karg of Germany. Susanne has been felting for about 12 years,
and shared with us that it was her first cat cave (shown above) with her precious Lissi inside that kicked off the felting a cat crave craze 🙂
Since her first felted cat cave, Susanne has taken the design and adventure to new heights.
Our thanks to Susanne for reaching out to us and offering to share her work!
