It’s entirely possible that this week will be filled with soft and felted creatures. Each day I set out to do a number of different and new things, and somehow I am drawn back to my desk where piles of wool roving blow across the surface like rainbow tumbleweed across the highway. Moments later, my barbed needle is bouncing up and down on a pile of fluff, forming, matting, and compressing it until a new felted friend appears.
Yesterday I asked for suggestions on animals you would like to see, and received the following:
A Monkey WITH a Banana
And a LARGER Aquarium of Fish
All such good ideas!! Thank you for the inspiration… I’m on it.
Today’s post is an owl in a tree. Because I love owls. I love trees. And I’m really stoked on the improvements I’m making with felting. If you are not yet convinced, consider that this owl was my second felting project EVER!! (The Goldfish just wanted to be posted first… fish can be so pushy sometimes, can’t they?)
Thank you for reading, and thanks again for the suggestions. More recipes and crafts coming soon- I promise.

Way to cute.
That is sooooo cute! Did you have anything to look at for inspiration and design or did you just wing it? (lol, sorry, pun not intended)
I am into owls and I think felt is going to part of my future projects. The colors are so bright.
I love owls so much. Too cute!
Catherine, I love the pun… I did in fact wing it! That’s what I love about felting… it’s like sculpting with wool, and the little animal personalities just seem to appear!
ga447- I think you would LOVE felting. Let me know how it goes for ya
Beryl. Thank you!! Who Who doesn’t love owls!? ;^)
I LOOOOOOOVE this owl (you know my address)! 😉 Please post a video of the needle felting process because I still don’t understand what this is or how it happens. <3
Thanks Vix!! I’ll work on a video demo of felting! Thanks for the idea
