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!”

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?!
If you like this one, check out the crows she felted shared in our facebook group.
We had so much fun with our two “special guests” on Wooly Wednesday this last week. Isla, age 7 1/2, shared her needle felted emoji and her wet felted fabric that she will sew into a clutch purse. She used MC-1 Batts, curly locks, angelina and more!
Sammie, age 6, shared his needle felted pictures and a work in progress. Notice the outlines on the Mario Brothers pictures, he did these all by himself using the iron on transfer pen and his mom ironed it onto a wool felt sheet. He is in the process of needle felting it. The rainbow is a picture he made for his mom 🙂
Jace, age 11, needle felted this awesome Sponge Bob picture on wool felt. He was not feeling well during our show but his sister Isla brought his picture in and shared it with us for our broadcast 🙂
We are so inspired by this young artist!
“I was so proud of my granddaughter who did her very first felting project with me. She pretty much made the sweet little Easter purse herself. The outside is a pretty lemon yellow and the inside is pink. She made the rope handles and the flowers too!
I was really worried about how I could help her design and cut the flowers on the bag. Well, I shouldn’t have worried! I turn my back for a while to help my other granddaughter with her wet felting project and when I looked back at Isabella she had already designed and cut the flowers and was busily putting them together.
I think the purse turned out adorable, don’t you think? I was really proud of the job she did for her first time ever wet felting. Yeah, Isabella!”

“Thank you for taking the time to give me some tips over the phone. Using all of Living Felt’s supplies helped my bonnet making much easier. I used Living Felt resist material, mesh, olive oil soap (which I love), bamboo mat (was larger than the one I had).
The wool I used was MC-1 Merino-cross fast felting batt [Caramel].
Thank you for your wonderful customer service!”

“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!
All the fibers were laid out on the base layer, and then the picture was wet felted.
Base layer = Living Felt PF-X Prefelt batt cut to size, MC-1 Batts, Dyed Tussah Silk, Merino Top, Dyed Sheep’s Locks.
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!
