and now for something completely different!

I wanted to use some of the bright colors I have. thought I'd make a rooster, but it took a different turn and became a sort of ptericactyl bird? I will do a rooster, . . someday.

Is there a good website that can show a person how to do this? I am now intrested. I used to do sculpey critters (lost interest after a while) and I am looking for a different venue to hopefully trigger my creativity. Thanks in advance.

I don't have a website. There are books that I've seen. Google. "Needle felting"

I just randomly grabbed ths video



I do not use a gizmo of any kind and do all the work with a single needle . I form the body out of quilt batting , well, stuffed toy batting, really, then cover with wool roving. The died stuff is expensive. And, the needle is very sharp. You will draw blood many times. Careful not to stain your creature with it!

Tiny, these are amazing and intriguing and irresistible! First time I have seen this thread.

My partner beads wooden animal figures. I will have to post a picture from our laptop for you to see. She says the same thing, too many hours of work to sell but fascinating to make and own.

Well done,my oh-so talented friend!

Wow! Those are amazing
I have a llama who needs a good shavin'. Maybe I'll try it out! Although that needle business looks pretty dangerous

I found the llama hair not as easy to use. I think maybe it isn't have the same microscopic "corkscrew' structure to the hairs that makes them interlock and "felt" I each other.

Well darn it. I have no idea what to do with a bag of llama fur I'm gonna have!
Do you get the wool online, or do they have it in craft stores?
