Felting an elephant

Posted on

Sara Renzulli

So, I have decided to create a new felting kit   with natural wools as they are great for needle felting and after much thought and discussion decided upon including instructions for a needle felted elephant. This meant I needed to make one, which I have not attempted before.

I find the best way to make a felted piece it to look at pictures of the real thing and if lucky enough to find them felted examples. I found a few stunning examples of felted elephants however my absolute favourite is one made by artist Sara Renzulli (above and below) She has been felting for over 4 years creating a distinct style. I have included a few pictures of Sara’s in my gallery. If you would like to see more examples of her work please see Sara's website and if you would like to buy one of her felted animals she has Etsy shop.
