“I had a little trouble with the scissors.” I wasn’t sure I’d have time to get this felted and photographed, but I wanted to do something fun for Halloween. And here he is. Good Ol’ Charlie Brown in his ghost costume. No matter how terrible the costume, no one should get a bag of rocks for Halloween. Come on, people!

I took a photo of the “sheet” without the form under it so you could see those were actual holes, and not just black spots felted on. There are a few more shots of Chuck in the gallery. Happy Halloween!

Trick-Or-Treating Monsters (Needle Felted Fiends)

Run Red Run Needle Felted Skeleton Witch Ghost This time of year is crazy busy for me, with so many commissions coming in and gifts to make. But I couldn’t let October slip by without celebrating Halloween with some felties. The Witch and The Ghost were last year’s sculpts. But that little Skeleton guy? He’s actually something I started a couple years ago and recently found in my great big box of unfinished projects.

Based on a comic character designed by Vince Dorse, the little bag of bones is an honest-to-goodness monster who happens to enjoy Halloween just like a regular kid. I dug him out of his little cardboard coffin, cleaned up the fuzzy edges and got him ready for his big night. It was interesting working on him because I realized how differently I felted just a few years ago compared to my current process. He’s felted more firmly and, therefore, harder to make changes and alterations to.

There are more shots in my gallery. And stop back in a couple days because I’m racing against the clock to get something special done for Halloween.

Sewickley Public Library’s hosting a Run Red Run Needle Felt Exhibit!

I was asked by the fine folks at the Sewickley Public Library (http://sewickleylibrary.org) to display my fiber sculptures, and I jumped at the chance. A small exhibit of my felties will be on display at the library for the month of October. And since October means Halloween, I’ve included a generous complement of my needle felted monsters, creeps and trick-or-treaters.

This is the largest collection of my felties in one place — besides my work room — and I’m excited to see them featured among the books that inspired many of them. While some pieces are not for sale, others will be available for purchase. Twenty percent of any sales made through the library during October will be donated to the library. If you’ve never visited, Sewickley Library is a great public space, cozy and classic, with a full schedule of community events, local art displays and lots of space for catching up on your reading. So remember, this October, Reading Is Feltamental (wow, sorry about that one).
