Irina Andreeva

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

I don’t have a ton of information about the fiber creations of Russian artist Irina Andreeva, but I don’t need any to know how amazing her art is. She doesn’t speak of her techniques on her blog but in the photos I can see needle felting, wet felting, knitting and embroidery, all worked together to create touching, whimsical, contemplative scenes and sculptures.

Irina’s blog bio (translated from Russian by Google) reads:

“I love to communicate, to meet, to share, to walk, summer, spring, winter, fall. I love when everything has its own character, aroma, texture, idea.”

In each of her pieces, I can see her passions. Check out the rest of her blog and see for yourself.

(Big ups to our own Mr X Stitch for pointing me in Irina’s direction!)

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!
