Easy Video Tutorials – Creating Basic Body Shapes

‘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.

You might want to have a quick look at the Dos And Don’ts For Beginners before you start.

You still here? Come on, grab your wool and needles and lets get stuck in, literally. Don’t worry, I will take you through it all step by creative step x
