Living Felt International Felting Contest 2011

The Living Felt International Felting Contest 2011 winners are announced!  This year had a lot of entries in both the doll and Dr. Seuss inspired categories.  They were excellent examples of needle felting.  Everyone did a great job and I really enjoyed looking over all the entries.  You can find the winners and all the entries on the Living Felt site   Congratulations to the winners!


Art Doll Quarterly is out

The moment has finally arrived.  The Spring issue of Art Doll Quarterly has hit the stands and my award-winning Invisible Man is gracing the pages.  There is a seven page spread featuring the winners of the LIVING FELT INTERNATIONAL FELTING CONTEST 2010.  Everybody who won got their doll’s photo in the spread, and a chance to write a little something about themselves, their work and the contest.

Congratulations to all the winners, I’m proud to share the pages with your amazing work!    For anyone who wants to buy the issue, it’s on the stands now. And if you’d like to view all the entries from the comfort of your living room, you can visit the Living Felt site at Be sure to check out the Alice in Wonderland category too.

I also made the Living Felt homepage!

Thanks to Art Doll Quarterly for sending me my own contributor's copy.


Just Showing Off

Here’s my Invisible Man doll showing off the 3rd Place ribbon he won in the Living Felt International Felting Contest.  He’s such a ham.  Also in the photo are the Award Certificate and Gift Certificate that the nice people at Living Felt ( sent me.  It was such a nice surprise to come home to.  When I pulled the package out of my mailbox it was like winning the prize all over again.  I can’t thank them enough.

I’m sure I’ll use the gift certificate in the next few days to purchase more supplies and begin a new project.  The positive jolt I got from winning 3rd place really got my creative juices flowing.  Maybe I’ll scrapbook the award certificate, or frame it.  And the ribbon might look nice displayed over my workshop desk…if I can convince my little friend to give it back.


Needle Felted invisible man wins 3rd place in competition

I entered my very first needle felting contest this past August — The Living Felt 2010 International Felting Contest.  I’m very happy to announce that my Invisible Man won 3rd place!  All the entries were wonderful, and I’m sure the judges had a rough time deciding.  I’m just thrilled I made the cut!  Congratulations to all the other participants.  The quality of work on all the contest entries was impressive and will serve as inspiration for me the next time I pick up the ol’ needle.
