Felter Skelter: Unicorn Felt

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

I’ve loved unicorns for as long as I can remember. My favorite movies as a child were Unico in the Island of Magic and The Last Unicorn. My first Halloween/Mardi Gras costume was a purple unicorn. No other mythical creature captured my young imagination like the unicorn. Maybe you have similar memories.

This month, I’m celebrating unicorn magic with my favorite felt unicorns (and a couple of narwhals) from far and wide, plus some new works of my own. Please click though to see more from each of these very talented felt artists!

Finally, here’s a sneak peek at what I’ve been working on! I will have six new pieces in REVERIE, opening Thursday, February 25th, at Screaming Sky Gallery in Portland, OR. If you’re in the area, I hope you will check out the show (it will also be online at screamingskygallery.com).
