Hi. Just wondering if anyone here does needle felting. I make pet and animal portraits from wool and the pets own fur if requested and I'd love to chat with anyone who also felts

Hi Karen and welcome to Buzz,i have just started doing needle felting (badly),i started doing hill scenes....lots of scope for me there,and really can't make serious mistakes.I have just finished a wee Robin,and nearly finished a fox....he looks more like an alsation dog to me.I really need to know more about the different woools and textures.....Any help would be great.I don't have time just now but will try and post my efforts so far,and i would love to see your work...and how you frame your pieces,I will send you a friends request.Hope you enjoy Buzz.

Hi. Lovely to hear from you. I started needle felting with a small kit that I bought online. I started making three d sculptures but then I discovered portraits and now enjoy doing those more. I have been doing it for some years now so it takes a lot of practice and a lot of doing things wrong. I'll be more than happy to give you any advice I'll attach some photos of my work and I'll try to find where the friend request is and accept it I look forward to looking at your work too. Take care and hope to speak to you soon

WOW!!!!!


Just WOW!!!!

What an amazing gift you have .... those pictures are astonishingly good Karen ... and I'm sure they must be very precious to the pet owners, especially if they have lost their beloved pets.
