Felt Potpourri


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


Sometimes in researching this column I come across images that I love, but that don’t fit in with the column that month. Or I’m a little late discovering an artist who would have been perfect for last month’s column. I usually file them away for later, but this month I have decided to showcase a few of those images in all their glory. These beauties shouldn’t have to wait around!

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!
