Catch it live on Living Felt Friends
All of these wonderful and beautiful creations were felted by Vera Runova of Minnesota!
This purse was made for her sister’s birthday! She felted it using New Zealand Corriedale Natural Medium, natural light, Merino Top Lima Bean and Lagoon.
These wet felted flowers were part of a series Vera made using Merino Top to create delicate, beautiful flowers. If you would like to make your own wet felted flowers, try Living Felt Wet Felting Flowers Kit!
These wonderful nuno felted scarves were Vera’s first attempt! Wow! You can’t tell at all! They came out really well! Vera also says that she used Living Felt Merino Top Fuschia, Raspberry, Marigold, Honey, Lima Bean, Garden Ivy and a Silk Scarf.
This wonderful purse, Vera says, is her latest project. She used purple clemtis flowers (made using Merino Top Purple and Violet) to pop against the neutral tones of the purse (made with New Zealand Corriedale Natural Medium and Natural Dark). “Scraps of real silk fabric were used to make an interesting structure and composition. The Living Felt Bamboo Mat is a great way to perfect the round handles,” Vera said.
Thank you for sharing your amazing creations with us, Vera, and great job!

This wonderful flower is needle felted by Tatiana of Latvia in Europe. She has been needle felting for about two years and says
“the more I do the more I like it :). I love receiving positive feedback from my Etsy customers, it is very motivational and inspiring to see that my creations can be found all over the world. I hope that someday, I will have time for larger and more demanding projects and will be able to hold my own exhibition.“
