Thanks for watching! I hope you are in love with your new little friend you created in this workshop and that you learned lots of helpful needle felting tips and tricks..

My biggest tip for students is this – if you are not in love with your creation, it only means you haven’t finished.   If something isn’t right, go back over the lessons and don’t be afraid to keep felting.
