Needle Felted Toadstools - The Magic Onions

Needle Felted Toadstools

Ok, so it’s official… my new obsession is mushrooms and toadstools. Whenever I sit down with my needle and let the wool speak to me, a mushroom or a toadstool magically emerges. It’s uncanny… I can start with something else in mind but, alas, it’s always a mushroom or a toadstool that comes out! I have given up trying to fight it. Here is my recent collection…

So, if you visit my shop, Fairyfolk, don’t be surprised to find it stocked with all manner of fungi!
Am I alone here or does anyone else also have a mushroom fetish???
Blessings and magic.

  1. Oh, they’re adorable! I love mushrooms. They’re so cute. My favorite part of the original Fantasia movie when I saw it was the dancing mushrooms with the little one who kept falling down.

    It’s morel mushroom season here in Michigan so I’ve been poking around in the forest, photographing (but never picking) the ones I find. Do you think you could do a morel in felt? It’d be tricky for sure! I’m thinking about trying to woodburn one on a trinket box.

    Here’s my blog post about morels:

    Have a blessed day!
