He is absolutely fabulous,  don't know the first thing about needle felting but you have obviously got a real talent. Thanks for showing us all, you must feel mighty proud of him  :thumbsup:

....Thankyou to everyone for your positive replies :) -some projects work better than others and Fergus seems to have been one that appeals well!! :goat:

Miss Piggy :wave: --- I have had no instuction on how to "needle felt" only what I have seen off  "the web".

It is easy to do .......and  you can make virtually anything -- I reckon a pig would be fairly straight forward! :pig:

.... go on try it! I`m sure you will be surprised at what you can do .

looking forward to see other needle felting projects on here.....

I think he is really lovely. You have definitely got a talent there.

I have recently started doing some needle felting after seeing Kirstie doing it on the TV last week.  Mine is very simple stuff though, nothing like yours.  I am just using felt as the base and basically felting another bit of felt on top of that.  What base do you use?
Life is like a bowl of cherries, mostly yummy but some dodgy bits

Hi Bionic  :wave:
Hope your project is coming does not matter what you do as long as you enjoy doing it! ;D .
The base is exactly the same as what you see on the top- all just solid wool!


When I first started the needlefelting ......I found it difficult to conceive ???  how" plain fluffy fleece" can be transformed into a solid mass by stabbing it with a needle! and even more amazing and almost magical ,from that point how the dense solid mass of  wool can then be moulded into a form  e.g-- -but some how it just works...

How come my needlefelting aminals all look likes crosses between sheep/donkeys and frogs  ??? ??? in other words......completely unidentifiable. :-\ :-\

Did you ever stop to think, and forget to start again !!
