DOLLS Needle Felting Video Tutorial

Learn to Make Needle Felted Dolls of Your Very Own!

 Are you ready to learn how to needle felt dolls that flex, bend and can stand on their own?  If you’ve needle felted over wire armatures, you are going to feel liberated when you learn how easy it is to construct these sturdy, flexible needle felted dolls using only wool and felting needles.  A feature of this class is learning how to needle felt eyes that will give your doll a unique expression.  Needle felted teeth are another fun thing to learn!  You will learn how to stretch and manipulate the wool to bring out smiles and dimples plus SO much more in this comprehensive 10 hour long video tutorial.

  • Connect the parts to create a strong and flexible needle felted body.
  • Fun techniques to make needle felted hands and feet that add so much life to your character.
  • Adding body contours 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 felted shoes and clothing options using wool batting and prefelt.
  • Over 4 hours on faces will show you so many tricks for creating expression.
  • Needle felted eyes and teeth are their own special magic!
  • Blush and Shading is nearly like painting with wool
  • Several options for hair including straight and curly
  • Learn how to finish your project by filling in any holes left by the needles and taming down wool fuzzies.
