A fire dragon, my latest felt creation

Sculpturing with wool fibres and a felt needle is great fun!

What I enjoy in particular is the use of colourful fibres, blended together in all kinds of different shades. Then I shaped the coloured wool fibres with the barbed felt needle. I either shaped the wool fibres on their own or by covering a core wool basis which has already been sculptured into a certain shape. I had started this dragon with a corser white core wool, creating the body. Then I used a blend of wool fibres which I had karded from shades of green merino wool fibres to needle felt over the white back, tale, neck and head. Afterwards I sculptured the face, the mouth, eyes, nose, teeth and little horns. As it is a fire dragon, not to forget the flames which are coming out of the dragon’s nose.  🔥  The feet were made purely of this green merino wool fibres without the core wool.

For the wings I have used a karded blend of purple shades and a little pink merino wool fibres. No core wool was used for the wings. They are light, and a bit of wind makes them moving 😀  I covered the dragon’s belly with the purple wool fibres and needle felted the wings on the body. I like the colour combination of green and purple shades with the orange-red flames. All are secondary colours compared to primary colours.  At last the triangular slightly spiky shapes for the back and tale where needle felted separately and then needle felted on the dragon.

When I create one of those magical, mystical beings I connect with them as I go along during the felting process.  I really enjoy bringing those beings into existences!

Enjoying creating seasonal felt decoration

I really enjoy experiencing the different seasons; the way how they unfold, transform and change through the year. The change of colours in nature is an amazing transformation, which I do observe in total awe. I love to share my joy and love for nature and it’s wonders and beauty. I share it e.g. in workshops, in fairy healing, in nature healing, in nature mandalas, in my fibre craft creations, in  paintings and even when I’m dancing.

Seasonal felt creations

As the seasons and the realm of nature beings are very close to my heart it is no wonder that one of my favorite activities is to create seasonal items and ornaments. Even though the seasons occur every year, I still enjoy creating something new, use different colours, shapes and even different materials as you can see below.

A few weeks ago I had some fun by painting these gnome faces on wood. Or do you think they look a bit like Santas?

Anyway, here are 4 mini Santas, needle felted from wool fibres. One of them was made by a felt workshop participant.

Angels and fairies are always a beautiful decoration and a lovely hand-made gift.

I recently enjoyed creating fairies related to the elements. The first fairy is related to fire and water and the second one is related to earth and water.

If you like more subtle colour shades, then you may enjoy creations out of plant dyed wool like this toad stool and gnome. This one here has found a new home in Belgium. I love when my creations find new homes and friends in different parts of the world. I am happy to create bespoke items and ornaments either needle felted or wet felted and bring joy and beauty to my customers.  Please, contact me if you  wish to order a customized felted item and I am happy to create one for you, your friend or family.
