Kay Petal discovered needle felting in 2007 when she was recovering from cancer. After surviving from a rare cancer Petal became keenly aware of the need to stop giving in to the mundane things in life and find that thing she is truly passionate about. When she purchased a book by a pioneer of needle felting, Birgitte Krag Hansen, she discovered what she really wanted to do.

Kay Petal’s Felt Alive dolls are fully jointed, solid felted wool and require no sewing, no stuffing, no painting, no knitting or crocheting, no patterns and no wire armatures. Her work has been featured in numerous magazines and has been getting accolades in the blogosphere.
