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:
This is a video tutorial on how to make a stuffed goat from felt. It is a fairly easy project, suitable for beginner craftspeople, and it makes a nice and durable toy for kids too. Enjoy and do share your feedback!
Here comes another tutorial. This one is more beginner-oriented and it’s on how to needle felt a pumpkin.

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.
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.
