It's been a massive learning curve putting together my 1st online course, from getting the right equipment & editing software, experimenting with filming, using audio or to use voice over, not to mention getting your head round the editing suite! I aim to have the finished product ready for the end of July, this is my introduction, I'm still working on the needle felting detail of the piece, but here are some images before and after the Wet Felting Process.
Although I live in beautiful Yorkshire, I rarely manage a glimpse of the wildlife surrounding me. I’m very lucky to have been sent an abundance of photos and videos of foxes, badgers and hedgehogs from people who are lucky to have regular visitors to their gardens. Using these images and following many wildlife rescue groups on social media, I love creating my needle felted sculptures.

However, let us admit that most of us do drool over these and do tend to have a cuddle or two when you are out buying cuddly stuffed toys for kids. However, this article will make you feel good because it is about felt animals’ art, which means that you can make cute animals using felt but label it as an art or craft.
This listing is for a SAMPLE PACK of felting needles containing ONE EACH of the following 13 different types: Dark Purple: 32 gauge heavy triangular (Great for starting large projects - it is a VERY aggressive, thick, sturdy needle, not suited for detail work.) White: 36 gauge medium/heavy triangular (Great for starting small projects since it grabs lots of wool very quickly. Also great for joining felted pieces together. This needle is NOT suited for fine detail work.) Green: 38 gauge medium triangular (A great all purpose needle. I have felted many projects from start to finish using just a 38 gauge triangular needle!) Yellow: 40 gauge medium/fine triangular (A medium/fine gauge needle that is thin - and fragile! This needle is perfect for the finishing stages of your project when you want to fine tune any details without distorting the overall shape of your work. It is great for final smoothing and fuzz-clean-up because it won't leave big, noticeable holes the way a larger needle would.) Pink: 42 gauge fine triangular (A fine gauge needle that is ultra thin - and ultra fragile! This needle is great for defining those super tiny details and for anywhere that you want ultimate in control over your work.) Light Blue: 36 gauge medium star needle - each needle has 4 sides with 2 barbs each. (Great for starting small projects since it grabs lots of wool very quickly. Also great for joining felted pieces together. This needle is NOT suited for fine detail work.) Orange: 38 gauge medium star needle - each needle has 4 sides with 2 barbs each. (A nice medium gauge needle for general felting.) Beige: 36 gauge heavy/medium spiral/twisted blade needle (Great for starting projects and joining large pieces together. Also great for attaching hair.) Red: 38 gauge medium spiral/twisted blade needle (Great for general felting and attaching hair.) Blue: 40 gauge medium/fine spiral/twisted blade needle (Great for finishing work. The spiral blade design helps diminish the appearance of holes.) Aqua: 36 gauge heavy/medium reverse blade needle (Great for pulling lots of fiber for blending or creating fuzzy texture) Black: 38 gauge medium reverse blade (Great for pulling moderate amounts of fiber for blending or creating fuzzy texture) Gray: 40 gauge medium/fine reverse needle (Great for pulling small amounts of fiber for blending or creating fuzzy texture) NOTE: CARDSTOCK HOLDER COLORS WILL VARY Caution: These needles are VERY sharp. Not intended for young children. (And adult supervision required for use with older children.) P.S. Even grown-ups should be careful! Please also take care not to leave these unattended around pets. For some reason, cats and dogs are drawn to wool like MAGNETS, and so if you leave a needle in your work and they happen to get their paws (or jaws) on it, they could get seriously hurt. (Please look out for our furry friends!!!)

Last week I was working on a rather dark project (still not finished) so I did this one as an injection of colour. The piece is 6x4 and is entirely hand stitched. Not sure what it reminds me of, my husband said it looked little pool pebbles! SOLD on Etsy.
