Felter Skelter - your essential needle felting column from Mr X Stitch!

Because I’m never done thinking about all the people of the planet poking the wool in the name of awesomeness, I like to look all over the internet to find the pockets of preciousness. Today, let’s look at three of the mrxstitch-iest needle felted pieces that deviantART has to offer!

Mini Mimic Octopus by DragonBehin: It doesn’t just have great style and personality, but working this thin and this small is near to impossible. SO good!

GlassCamel has done many magnificent Transformers, including this here Mirage. I particularly enjoy the weaponry, and the hands on this guy.

This is untitled, I think, from m3ow. I’d like to visit the universe this guy lives in, but I probably don’t want to move there.

What Technique Is This?

Needle Felting is the process of using a notched or “barbed” needle to compress layers of wool into denser felt that can be manipulated to create 3D sculptures. It is different to wet felting, which uses water to combine wool fibres, and these days there are a range of felting tools available that can enable you to make your own soft sculptures with ease!
