Since Dilu has found needle felting and most likely a new addiction it's surfaced that many others have tried needle felting as well. I thought it would be fun to see some of your work.
I'll go first. I've done exactly 3 felted bears. I have POUNDS of colored wool just waiting for me to do more though!
The smallest one is 3" tall and tallest is 7". All are very firmly felted.... hours and hours and hours of stabbing!!
PS. Intercal - perhaps a separate forum for Needle Felting as we could share a lot of info there!!??
Hey Hey Hey Daphne-wonderful guys there. Really cute.....7" wow. I wondered if there was a sizelimit and then decided that as long as they were very very very firmly felted that shouldn't be a problem?
Is this right?
Love your guys....thanks for sharing them
Daphne, love your work there, i am a needlefelter, here is one of my latest on this Avatar, meet KeeKee and Son (Mother and son polar bears)
Oooh Karen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They are adorable!! Love their faces, so cute!
These are some of my feltie creatures. I love felting but have put it aside for the summer. I have a new pattern from Bobby Rippenger for a realistic polar bear but I want to finish a couple of mohair bears first and then there is the thread bear I've been working on....and unfortunately work keeps getting in the way.
WOW YOU GUYS
Such fanciful magical creatures! Love the bears, love the bunnies, the dragon....
you guys are so very very inspiring!

Those needle felted critters, Daphne and marion, are superb.
And Daphne... a special note to you, re: the scrapbook-y composition of your photo. Very, very cute! Please SEND ME THAT SCOTCH TAPE ELEMENT! No pressure. Just do it. Will repay you somehow, someday, in kind.
ALL these needlefelted critters are absolutely wonderful! Kudos to all of you who take the time and make the effort to create these little beasties!! I admire your patience and talent!
Great photos ladies. Here's my two cents:
OK...you've shown us all up Judi...you are the best! I want to take your on-line course but have been waiting for the details to show. Can you give us a hint of what the course will be about. I'm hoping you'll be teaching us how achieve the great looks of your face felted bears!
I haven't taken a picture of my first felted bear yet, but I did a punk penguin for a challenge on another group (non-bear silly critter) and I have felted a muzzle on another bear (not my pattern).
I would like to learn how to needle felt... i wonder if I can do it with my pom's tumbleweeds (hair balls) that are all over! LOL I vaccuum and vaccuum and they come back the next day! LOL
Sabine, that muzzle is so cute, and the penguin is FANTASTIC! I love him!
Judi... Well, I have no words. Honestly, I think you are the best and most inventive and original needle felter I, personally, have ever seen. I mean that right to my core. There just are no words...
Thank you so much Shelli! :)
Judi, I particularly love the toes. Have to give that a try some day.
Yes, I'm waiting for Miss Judi to publish a book on the Art of Advanced Needle Felting. C'mon Judi!!!
Do tell us more about your online class.... just what will we learn??? That course will be full in no time!
Sabine... that Penguin is dynamite!!!! So cool!!!
I would rather buy a book than do an online course... whenever you come out with your book, I will buy it!
Judi, you're a felting genius dude!
OK, I should clarify before Judi goes into shock.... I've mentioned somewhere along the way in a post to her that she ought to write a needle felting book. I did NOT say she is going to write a book.
But don't y'all think think she should???? :D:D
Shelli, just use your priority tape!!!
All the rest of you who have been so generous in your photos, I am in awe! I think the work is incredable. Each one of you has your own style, just as in fur bears, every piece is so unique, I am just in awe of the imagination and the product quality.
You all give me inspiration to keep going and keep trying!
Oh goodie Judi's writing a book
In between knitting knitties, and making bears, and the kids and cows and dancing with a [INVALID] guy.........
