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

A quick and dirty post from me, the Moxie, this month. Many apologies but I finally caught the sinus-crushing-fever-nightmare-hobo-cough from which everyone around me has been suffering. (Thanks guys, seriously… no need to cover your mouths when you spew, it’s fine.)

Anyway, even if you’re not into the whole brevity thing, I think you’ll still love this inspired needle felting from wicked-cool artist Ellen Delbourgo. She sent me the coolest email on Flickr a while back and now I’m kind of internet stalking her.

She made this “Breaking Bad” inspired meth works… how could I not stalk her?

Breaking Bad Needle Felting by Ellen Delbourgo

Ellen wrote in her photo caption that she was just practicing, so to me it means this is just a peek of the awesome she’ll bring in the future.

You should know that she makes other art, too. Definitely worth the clicky.


Moxie is an artist, fiber pusher and genuine human being. She likes you very much indeed.

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!
