HandCrafted Felted Folk Art
Here at Fiber Fields we take needle felting seriously and we hope you do, too. We have been making these handmade needle felted artwork for many years before turning our hobby into a business. Our goal is to make sure you have as much fun as we have had making these felted folk art pieces. We have begun to sell needle felting supplies and now we are expanding our products to include Feltie Forms.
To showcase these products we are a vendor at Pittsburgh Creative Arts Festival: Knit. Crochet. Quilt. Create! on August 12 – 14, 2021. We also will be at our booth at Penn’s Colony Festival on September 18 – 19 and September 25 – 26, 2021.Sign up for the New york state sheep and wool festival and our Demo
Spotlights are more in-depth projects that can be larger or more detailed than other finished products.These one-of-a-kind pieces bring out the creative muse in me. You never know what will be in the Spotlight so stop by often to see.

Feltie Form Pumpkin Bamboo Skewer
Core Fiber Foam Block for needle felting
Sharp Scissors Floral Stem
Scrap of black wool fabric and a bit of lime green fiber
Fiber to decorate (Tea dyed, black and a dot of white fiber was used for this pumpkin)
First prep the feltie form pumpkin. You can needle felt core fiber to the pumpkin to smooth out any indentations or build up sections of the pumpkin. You can also use sharp scissors to trim away any unwanted part of the pumpkin.
Cover the whole pumpkin with a layer of fiber. It can be one color or a mixture of different colors. Pull a sheet of fiber off the end of the roving and lay it vertical on the pumpkin (top to bottom). Tack it in place with a felting needle. Repeat until the whole pumpkin is covered.
Decorate the pumpkin by felting on a jack-o-lantern face. Add a dot of white to the eyes to give them a pop. Decorate the top of the pumpkin with a spider web pattern.
Make a stem for the pumpkin by wrapping black fiber around a bamboo skewer.
Remove the stick and needle felt the stem to help make it firmer. Attach the stem to the top of the pumpkin with deep stabs around the bottom of the stem. Add strips of fiber down the stem to create vertical ridges that continue down the sides of the pumpkin. These strips should be fatter at the base of the stem and tamper out as they go down the sides of the pumpkin.
Finishing touches — With sharp scissors carefully stab a hole at the base of the stem and insert a floral pick. A dab of glue on the bottom of the floral pick will help keep it in place. Cut a leaf shape out of black wool and felt on some lime green veins. Needle felt the leaf on the pumpkin right behind the flora pick.
