Marlie’s Corner with Alyson Gurney of Little Felted Friends

On this episode, we chat with Alyson Gurney, the founder of @littlefeltedfriends


Alyson Gurney is a 24-year-old artist from Washington, DC, who picked up needle felting after coming across it on Instagram. The medium uses needles to craft wool into different shapes and structures. She started by sculpting a miniature version of her dog, Drift, a husky-mix rescue. Before long, Gurney was crafting models of her friends' dogs, and her passion quickly turned from a hobby into a full-fledged business.


She now runs Little Felted Friends, a service where owners can get teeny versions of their pets made. Gurney’s latest endeavors include becoming a fiber artist to the stars—Kelly Clarkson, Paris Hilton, and even Michael Strahan.

Alyson was even kind enough to send David his own Little Felted Friend of his pup Marlie! Check out David unboxing his PAWsome gift below!

 Be sure to tune in weekly on Fridays at 12pm ET to watch, ask questions, and win some PAW-some prizes! If you’d like to be featured in one of our upcoming episodes, send us a DM on Instagram @PawOriginal!
