Started as an interest and a hobby and now receives commissions.
As mentioned above, Artist Anna Yastrezhembovskaya (Анна Ястрежембовская) started with an interest in felting woollen animals, which became a business.  There is a small downside to her fame. She made a bat broach for her daughter, who asked for one, when it was finished she realised it was too big for her and decided to take pictures of it and put it on her social media site.  She was too busy with commissions to make more of this particular toy, so she decided to shelve it for the time being.  She then found out that someone pretending to be her, had sold them on line, but never delivered them and now angry costumers, were writing to her asking for their bats.  She is still trying to work out a solution to a problem that is not of her doing and at the same time keeping up with the animal commission orders to keep her business going.

    1. One of the best places to try is YouTube, you will get a demonstration of it as well.
      Just look up "felting", or I don't know if this is right, I got this on google translate "feutrage" and go through the videos.
      I hope you find what you are looking for, let me know how you get on.
      I hope you have a wonderful day.
