Harvest Mouse Wall Hanging – Needle Felted Picture – (click the picture for a closer look!)
This is a needle felted original picture.
This is a wet felted and needle felted original picture. It is a sweeet little Harvest Mouse climbing among the corn stalks, with a field of poppies in the distance. The background of the picture is wet felted using different wools and the mouse is needle felted onto the background. It is mounted onto board with 2 pieces of sea bleached driftwood framing the image. There is a hanging loop attached to the back of the picture. The picture including the frame is 30cms wide and 23cms high.
I thoroughly enjoyed making this picture. The wet felting process is highly therapeutic, using soap and water to gently felt the fibres together to make that blurry, muted base for the picture. Then, needle felting the detail of the corn stalks and bringing the little mouse to life with a mix of different fibres to create texture and shadows, it was a pleasure to create!. Thank you for looking at my Harvest Mouse!
