My Felted Herdy needle felting kits March 20, 2013 18:33
We have these new My Felted Herdy needle felting kits just in from the UK. The kit contains wool, felting needles and photo instructions. We tested one out this past weekend and made this little gal. She still needs a name and buddies. We understand sheep like buddies so we are working on getting one for her. This kit is a bit different than our other needle felting kits. Herdy uses a rustic wool yarn for the main body shape unlike typical wool roving. The yarn is poked with the needle just like we would do with more typical wool roving. The kit indicates it takes about 8 hours to complete but we finished in about 4 hours. The illustrations were helpful for making the feet but we struggled a bit with the head and ears. However, we like our gal a bit unique.
3" Felted Bowl in Sunset Swirl September 14, 2012 14:38 1 Comment
We have a new product, Sunset Swirl Felted Bowl Kit, now available on our website. This kit contains all of the supplies needed to make a needle felted 3” bowl in just a few hours or less. The wool roving is shaped around the 3” Styrofoam ball by continual poking with a felting needle. The poking binds the wool fibers together and the Styrofoam creates the shape of the bowl. If there are some “thin” spots, simply lay more wool over the area and slowly poke into place. Detailed instructions demonstrate how to remove the felted bowl from the Styrofoam. The Sunset Swirl wool roving is in limited supply for now. We will be adding more bowl kits in different colors and designs in the near future. Let us know if you have any colors you would like to see!
