I’ve started running monthly needle felting workshops in Toronto. We needle felt together and make wonderful toys and sculptures from wool. No prior experience needed, you can come and just enjoy the craft, which is very warm and colorful.
Next workshop will take place on October 25th at 7 pm.
Address is 300 Antibes Dr.
Please RSVP at email@example.com before coming.
Another timelapse video – see how I needle felt a ladybug. This is a great project for beginners.
Here’s a short video that I made to share some tips I wish I knew in the beginning of my felting career. They will save you time and money!
Here is a reference picture of the sheep from the video:
Here’s another Christmas needle felting video – you can follow the process of how I make a snowman.
Here is another needle felting video. This time I’m making sheep and using natural curly wool. Enjoy!
This is my second take on Nativity. This video is a complete timelapse – 4 hours of work compressed into 15 minutes.
Needle felted Waldorf Nativity set. This is the first set I made. I shortly made another one – and shot a video of it – see the following posts.
Here comes another tutorial. This one is more beginner-oriented and it’s on how to needle felt a pumpkin.
Here’s a new video – this time I tried to compress 1.5 hours of work into a quick timelapse to show the full process of making a fairy.
Here’s another video tutorial on how to needle felt a pregnant lady doll.

The purpose of this post is to save time and money for beginner needle felting artisans. Here I maintain a list of tools and materials I use.
Here is another video tutorial on how to make a swallow bird.
I am so excited to post my first video tutorial on YouTube today! Thanks to my lovely hubby for the music for the video.
Please provide feedback so that I can make consequent tutorials better.
Here’s a group photo of our small needle felted wood creatures.
Hi there! I’m a little (7″) hedgehog, made all from natural wool felt. Do you like my new sweater?

In this tutorial we are going to learn needle felting Easter eggs like the above.
For this project you will need:
- Felting needles (36 triangle, 40 triangle, 38 star)
- Special foam (for more resistance)
- 100% sheep wool (I prefer using plain wool batting for the inside of the egg and colorful wool roving for the outside).
- Carder for mixing the wool roving fibers
Roll the wool into a firm egg shape. For that hold the wool tight when rolling.
Use 36 triangle needles for initial deep felting and needle felt the shape until it’s firm and egg-like.
Use the carder to mix the wool roving, otherwise it won’t felt well because of long fibers.
Wrap the egg in the mixed wool roving and start felting. Use 36 triangle needle first.
As the fibers become denser you need to change your 36 triangle needle to 38 star.
Now it’s time to “polish” your egg. What I mean by polishing is to take fine needles (40 triangle) and needle-felt every square millimeter until your surface is smooth and firm.
That’s it, you are done! You now should have a colorful needle felted egg, which you can use as a decoration for your Easter or a gift. I recommend making multiple eggs as they look nice together in a basket.
