Kay Petal - Felt Alive

Alaskan needle felt artist Kay Petal created these whimsical life-like celebrities. While recovering from cancer in 2007, Kay realized how precious life is and decided to spend time doing things that bring joy in her life. For her, that would mean spending time felting.

Marilyn Monroe

Jackie Chan

Mr. T


The Beatles

Springsteen with Bono

Lyle Lovett

Willie Nelson

Ellen DeGeneres

I guess if you truly are passionate about something, you can do just about anything. I like Springsteen and Bono felt ones. Jackie Chan one looks creepy :)

While I appreciate her creativity, I'm not sure how surviving cancer has anything to do with this. I just give her credit for putting such emphasis on these stars and there teeth. Did anyone else notice the choppers on these things???
