Felt Octopus Commission


Commission your own 14″ x 14″ original felt Octopus, a sculptural painting made entirely from wool.Ā A wool loop on the back makes this piece ready to hang. *Our wool is responsibly sourced from happy sheep living on Maine farms.


This original felt Octopus, a sculptural painting made entirely from wool, started as a lap project on a family adventure from Maine to Boston. Along I95 in northern New England, eight tentacles sprang to life and then came together as one back in Hillary’s studio in Hampden, Maine. Not long after joining the World, this piece was a fast favorite at the 2023 Machias Fiber Festival and got scooped up right away. It was a delight to watch so many people’s eyes widen and jaws drop as they took in the visual feast of a 2D wall hanging that brought a 3D octopus popping out of the wall. Truly, that reaction and ensuing interaction will never get old.

Your purchase will be a formal art commission. Your octopus would be created in the same size and style as the one pictured here. A wool loop will be attached to the back, making your piece ready to hang. The felt octopus sculptural painting is hand crafted with wool, using nothing more than a rainbow of wool, felting needles, and a whole lot of creativity. As a commissioned piece, please expect 2-3 weeks for delivery (accounting for both creation and shipping).

Take a front-row seat along the journey of bringing felt masterpieces and children’s books illustrated with wool to life! Watch and learn along the journey. Be sure to like our Facebook page and follow on Instagram. Did we mention Hillary has a goal to earn a Caldecott Medal in her lifetimeā€¦)

If you enjoy felting and would like to learn how to create illustrated wool paintings such as this one, check out Hillary’s virtual felting classes. There is also a Felter’s Master Class that combines a complete offering of all the feting classes Hillary has created over the years. It would be a pleasure and an honor to be a part of your creative journey.
