Video Tutorials

‘KEEP IT SIMPLE’ is my mantra and the video tutorials on this page are designed to do just that. They are the building blocks of needle felting; a perfect beginners introduction on how to get it right from the very start. As well as standalone video tutorials they also perfectly compliment my range of needle felting kits. If you have purchased a kit then you can happily needle felt along with each tutorial as you work through the different stages of your project.

Needle felting newbie? Then you might want to have a quick look at the DO’S AND DONT’S FOR BEGINNERS before you start.

    Love your videos. I am trying to teach myself to needle felt and your tutorials are so helpful. I have a long way to go before my animals are recognizable… especially the facial features but ai so enjoy the process. THANK YOU,..You are 😉

    I have really enjoyed watching your tutorial videos and getting all your tips and tricks. I am totally new to needle felting and have started with a couple of Hobbycraft kits. Just because I am a seasoned crafter of many years and have a large stash which I am not using currently. I have ordered your biggest kit and am hoping to be able to get better results . The Hobbycraft kits are okay but not much detail so I messed up one. I am really looking forward to receiving my kit and hopefully getting results similar to yours.xx

    Loved the Winter Hare kit! You could easily make a kit for Great Pyrenees lovers and sell them in the States! The videos were so helpful!

    Hi I’m a beginner and have been making a hare following your tutorials. I am trying to fix the back legs and struggling. Is there a tutorial for this? I followed the one for making and fixing the front legs and that was great.

    Thank you I enjoyed the video. What is the difference between using a foam mat and hessian mat ? I am a beginner and have only used a foam mat.
