Felter Skelter Halloween Edition: Freaky Felt


Felter Skelter - your essential needle felting column from Mr X Stitch!
Halloween is almost here and I’m getting into the spooky spirit! In researching this column over the years, I have seen an enormous variety of felt artwork, from hyper-realistic to super kawaii. It takes a little digging, but there is another side to needle felting. A dark side. A grotesque and sinister side. OK, maybe not sinister, but freaky – freaky felt. I’ve plumbed the depths of the weird and woolly for this Halloween installment of Felter Skelter. These are some of my favorite felt creations because they manage to transcend the warm and fuzzy characteristics of the medium through the artists’ use of texture, theme, or subject. Scroll on for the photos, if you dare!
