Needle Felting

If you've tried machine felting, and would like to embellish your item, give needle felting a try.  It is quick and easy to add a little something to a plain felted bag, like I did in the picture above.

Clover makes a variety of molds and needle felting tools that you can find in many craft and yarn stores, or online.  I will show you these things in the video, or you can go to the Clover website and see what they have.   Also check out what Knit Picks has to offer.

Needle felting is not just for embellishing; you can even create figures!  Check out my amazon store for tools and books on needle felting.

I say this in the video, and want to reiterate here.  The needles used for felting are very, very, extremely SHARP!!   You should be very careful while using them; this is not something I recommend for young kids.  Adults only, and please be careful!!

Here is my little video.  Happy Needle Felting!
