Needle Felt

I create cartoon pins and animal figures using the needle felting technique. What is needle felting, you ask? In a nutshell, the art of needle felting is meticulously stabbing wool (also called roving) with a special barbed needle, over and over and over (and over and over) until I’ve created a 3 dimensional object (then it’s time for a nap after all that stabbing). The materials are lightweight and I can take them with me if want to get out and socialize once in a while.


My Woolly Doodles Etsy Shop is open!! I'm currently selling pins and figures. If you would like to commission a character for yourself, please contact me.


Here is a sampling of some of my projects. Please visit my Instagram page to see the 100 needle felt creations I felted in 100 days as part of The 100 Day Project! It was challenging but in a good way. All current projects, custom orders, and test projects are posted on my Instagram as well.
