Hi! This is “Felty” : ) He really likes all about needle felting LOL and he has his own needle felting kit with miniature needle, wool roving and pad!! LOL
He is always happy!!
bye : )

THIS IS THE WINNER!!!! I chose this feltie for a few reasons. Maru didn’t just make a feltie…she created a total scene here and you can’t help but smile. I think that’s one of the most important things about a needle felted creation..that it evokes an emotion. I try to make my dogs so peoples hearts are touched by their sweet faces. Maru’s feltie does the same thing.

I think that a needle felted creation should show  patience, persistance, creativity and humor. You can tell that Maru had a lot of patience and persistence to make all the little props to go with the feltie so that he can needle felt in style. The hat has a little strap. The sign has a little lady bug. There is a little bell on his neck.  He has a felting needle and foam with little balls of roving. To make a feltie felting is such a great idea and so creative!! The entire scene is very creative also and colorful.

I love the sweet little smile on his face and aren’t we happy when we are needle felting?

He even has a cute sign that says HAPPY FELTING!!

***THANKS SO MUCH to all the people who participated in the last contest. There were so many wonderful needle felted sculptures…I wish that I could give you all a prize!!! But the real prize is that you created something and you shared it with others. You had the courage and generosity to do that. It is so heart warming to see all of your precious creations and some from people who are just starting. You should all be very proud!! ALL OF YOU ARE REALLY WINNERS:)
