The Spring Green Man is beautiful, and is a lovely addition to my collection of seasonal green men, all created by McBride House. The arrival of Mr. Spring was perfectly timed!

Bella did an AMAZING job taking my vision and making it become real. She was wonderful to work with and I couldn't be more pleased with little Despereaux! Thank you so much!!

Even though I give the exact measurements of each piece I always take a picture of me holding it. It's so much easier for the buyer to see exactly how big it is this way.

About

Letting my imagination soar in wool!

Hello! Welcome to McBrideHouse! I was born and raised in the same small community that I live in now in southern New Brunswick, Canada. I am very fortunate to live in such a beautiful part of the world with my entire family living only a few minutes from me. I come from a long line of resourceful and artistic women and creating is simply in my blood. I feel a drive to create something from nothing and that challenge also really influences me.

In my early 20's I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and over the years I have fought this tooth and nail and have struggled to find a proper balance. Because of this, working outside my home became more and more difficult so I needed a way to supplement our income, and give myself a creative outlet. I’ve always wanted to have my own business and finally decided that time passes no matter what, so why not give it a try... and I've fallen in love with it!

I'm entirely self taught and I've never been very good at following directions or colouring inside the lines so the designing side of it just came naturally. I love the challenge of coming up with new ideas and trying to translate that into the raw wool. It's amazing just how many different ideas one can come up with! Each design is unique and takes on its own personality. I also love to write little stories to go along with each listing when I sell them. Sometimes I get carried away with their descriptions but I think it adds magic and life to each of them.

I create my pieces from a technique called needle felting. This involves poking and prodding different colours of wool with a very sharp barbed needle until you reach the perfect shape. It literally takes thousands of pokes, hours and hours and sometimes days to reach just the right one-of-a-kind soft sculpture.

I feel very fortunate to have found my passion in life and love what I do. I hope you can see the love in every single piece that I create.

Bella

Hello I'm Bella McBride and I would like to thank you for visiting my shop, McBride House!

In this shop I am offering a selection of needle felted creations made by me. Needle felting is technique which involves poking and prodding different colours of wool with a very (and I mean very) sharp needle until you reach the perfect shape. It literally takes thousands of pokes and hours and days to reach just the right sculpture. These are all one-of-a-kind soft sculptures and are all made without a pattern.

Keep checking back often as I'm constantly adding new sculptures to my store or follow me on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/McBride.House) or Instagram (@McBride_House or https://www.instagram.com/mcbride_house/) for pictures of newly finished items not yet listed!
