Felt Paintings

I’ve been doing a lot of felt paintings recently in preparation for a little craft fair at our local library. I’ve had 4 washboards in my closet for about a year now, so I decided it was time to dig them out and actually use them to hold some felt paintings.

My favorite washboard out of this batch is this little toadstool panel.

I found a felt painting that I started a long time ago (it must have been a really long time ago because I have no memory of ever doing it) and never finished. I decided to finish it for the show – its probably the biggest painting I’ve done yet, at 11 x 14″.

Hedgepig

My latest felt project is a cute little hedgehog. Or hedgepig, which I like the sound of.  Hedgepig. Say it with me, Hedgepig! front view I intended to make an owl, but when I had made the body shape and covered the back with dark brown wool, I looked at him, and it just clicked that he looked like a hedgehog. So I made him into a hedgehog.  He is about 2.5 inches tall.     side hedge hog, hedgehog photo, felted hedge hog He is a more cartoon-y style than I usually do. He is in the same style as a penguin I did last year, and those are the only 2 I’ve done in that style. I’ll be doing a post with pictures of that penguin soon! Thanks for reading!

First Post! – Felted Washboard Panel

Here is a wet and needle felted wool painting made to fit the wooden panel on top of a washboard. It’s a male and female cardinal, each sitting on its own post, on a snowy winter day. In a future post I’ll take photos through the process of making a felted painting, so keep checking back!
