What a gorgeous composition and fabulous felted necklace!
“Here are some of my new creations. My last project was the blueberry necklace. It was made from blue shades of blended merino silk. The middle of the berries were needle felted with black merino wool. For the berries I used the wet felting method.
I made the daffodil brooch as a celebration for the upcoming spring season. I used white merino top for the petals and varying shades of yellow merino top wool and silk for the middle of the flower. I also made my favorite flower, the oriental poppy. I used powder colored merino top and pink and purple silk fibers.
Using the wet felting method, I tried many varieties of soaps and Living Felt olive soap is by far the best I have used to create these beauties. Thank you for your wonderful products! Happy Spring!”

Talk about thinking outside the box! This hat Rocks!
“I am bringing the 60’s back with my “beehive” hat!! :). It’s made from Living Felt core, the needle felting hat kit deluxe in summer and flowers, the 4 needle tool, a little bit of butterscotch Merino, and lots of flowers I had in my stock. The bees came from a get well bouquet of flowers I received from a work friend after my recent hip surgery. Does this scream Spring or what? :)”

This was a great inspiration piece with HOT TIPS shared in our facebook group, THANK YOU, Christine!
“I finally finished this one! I lost my mojo for a couple of weeks, but this piece sat, half done, and waited it out, and now my mojo is back! It’s all Living Felt wool, and the flowers are cut up LF lavender silk hankies!
I did something a little different this time – I wanted to transfer the butterfly onto this piece after the background was done so I dry ironed the entire background, and then ironed on the transfer. It worked great!
The fuzzies were tamed, the needle marks virtually disappeared, and I was left with a nice, flat surface for the transfer! It would be worth trying on your next pet portrait if you want to put in a little background.”

Deborah Loveless stopped in for some supplies and brought a few show-n-tells. How about this bee?!! It weighs over 11oz.
She wet felted it with our PF-X Prefelt as a base layer and Merino top for design. Wet felting is new for her…awesome, yes?!

What a handsome little bunny, don’t you want to hug him?
“Don’t let this guy in your carrot patch! LF core, the brown is alpaca with a thin layer of winter white, details and carrots MC-1 batts, and the carrot tops are locks.”

We love the vibrant colors and all of the wonderful detail in this piece…right down to the shading of the birdhouse pole.
“Hello! I made this felt picture called “Kandi’s Garden” during the March snowstorm we received here in Pa. Even though we are surrounded by 18 inches of snow, this picture reminds me that spring is right around the corner! Your wonderful Merino [MC-1 Merino Cross] wool was used to make it.

It is so fun to explore what you can make with a bit of MC-1 Batting, Wool Felt and a Transfer Pen!
After transferring the wing pattern from printer paper to the felt with the Transfer Pen, the wings were needle felted onto the Wool Felt and then cut out.
The body was needle felted and slits cut into the sides. I used pins to plan the wing placement and overlap, then wings inserted into the slits. Hide the insertion points and join to the body more securely by needle felting wool between the wings and the body.
For this Elephant Hawk Moth, I first wet felted Fuchsia Merino Top and cut out the wing shape. then the accent colors were needle felted on top.
