Top Tip For Beginners

ALLOW YOURSELF TO BE A BEGINNER! Don’t strive for perfection at first attempt! It’s just not going to happen and you will feel defeated before you have begun. Certainly don’t let fear of failure hold you back and never compare your chapter 1 to someone else’s chapter 5. Instead, soak up the joy of creating, forget the world for a while and the rest will follow. Everyone started at the beginning so just get stuck in, what’s the worst that can happen? Just grab hold of all that unused needle felting gear that’s sitting staring at you, grab the bull by the proverbials, grab a cuppa on the way and get started!

DE-STRESS AND GIVE YOUR MENTAL HEALTH A BREAK

Arts and crafts, of any kind, can help soothe your mind and soul, providing a welcome and important distraction from the stresses of your day-to-day life. The joy and excitement at seeing a handful of wool transformed into a beautiful animal or sculpture, using just a barbed needle, is undeniable and I wanted to share what I have learned along the way.

How do I know what felting needles to use?

The fab thing about needle felting is that you need so little to get started. Wool, a needle and a soft base to felt on. Felting needle types really confused me when I started but all you need is one or two sizes in your craft box. Here’s a quick, no fuss guide to FELTING NEEDLES so you don’t waste precious crafting time trying to work out what you need.
