I’m a beginner felter and have been at it for about six months now. My time in for my “fun” is sporadic since I have 3 kids to take up the rest of my time. I LOVE felting. My mother taught me a little about it and I got hooked immediately. I have a great need for some creativity and art in my life and this is just the perfect thing.
This old fella’ was made as a christmas gift to one of my kids teachers. I thought she would enjoy a “santa scholar”, engulfed in a favorite book. My wool is from a farmer and was hand dyed. The doll does not have any wiring in it and everything is made from felted wool. He’s not very big, probably 7″ tall, or something like that. He was really fun to make and he still sits on the teachers desk, reading away. (I think he forgot it was christmas) :o)
I guess I’m not so talented in making animals yet, but the key word is yet! I have made a few other pieces and I’m still enjoying the discovery of all the different things that can be sculpted with felt.
Thanks for a great website, I just discovered it and I’m excited to explore all the information you have available. I think I have so much to learn and this seems to be a great place to do so. The little doggies you make are so fantastic I’m not sure I dare try one for risk of great disappointment. :o)
