Needle Felted Cuties

Felter Skelter - your essential needle felting column from Mr X Stitch!

We are giving you a new chance to read this awesome column, by Zoe Williams.

I’m sending off 2015 with a salute to cute! I’ve covered needle felted cuties in this column before, but this remains a favorite genre for needle felters and one that I return to again and again in my own work. I think you will agree that this group of artists is taking felt cuteness to the next level. In fact, I challenge you to reach the end of this column without saying “aww.”

What Technique Is This?

Needle Felting is the process of using a notched or “barbed” needle to compress layers of wool into denser felt that can be manipulated to create 3D sculptures. It is different to wet felting, which uses water to combine wool fibres, and these days there are a range of felting tools available that can enable you to make your own soft sculptures with ease!
