So I was given a needle felting pen as a present but haven’t been able to do to much with it yet. Below is about the best I have been able to manage so far.
It seems to be a skill that takes some patience and a lot of wool.
I have been searching for some great tutes on creating needle felted toys. There are many out there on creating a flat two dimensional needle felted image but not too many about making 3D objects.
For all you other needle felting enthusiasts out there, here is a great one I found on creating a needle felted dog/cat at Laura Lee Burch’s blog. She is a bit of a whiz at creating felt toys so it is worth checking out the rest of her page whilst you are there.
I have a long way to go before I can be this good, but maybe one day down the track you may find some little needle felted critters popping up in the Pip & Ollie shop.
If you have any great tutorials on needle felting please share the link in the comments section.
