Needle Felting a FAIRY Tutorial

Needle Felting is truly an amazing craft. It’s relaxing, meditative, therapeutic, peaceful, magical and a bit mysterious.

In this 9 hour long tutorial, I do my best to take the mystery out as I teach you, step-by-step and poke-by-poke, the secrets of bringing wool to life.

Needle Felted FAIRY Dolls Workshop Features:

  • Needle felt the core structure using core wool batting – no wire armatures!
  • Make flexible joints by connecting the core parts to create a strong and lifelike needle felted body.
  • You’ll learn fun techniques to make needle felted hands and feet that add so much life to your character.
  • Sculpt and form her little body using amazing yet simple techniques for creating a skin or flesh layer that rolls and stretches much like our own skin.
  • Learn techniques for needle felting her slippers and suit using batting and prefelt.
  • We spend several hours on faces so you’ll learn exactly how it’s done.
  • Needle felted eyes and teeth are their own special magic!
  • Blush and Shading is nearly like painting with wool
  • You’ll learn how simple it is to give your Fairy beautiful hair.
  • Learn how to finish your project by filling in any holes left by the needles and taming down wool fuzzies.
  • Finished FAIRY doll is approximately 8″ – 10″ tall.
