First time felting and the instructions were clear and easy to follow, definitely need a lot more practice but I enjoyed doing it and it did look like a squirrel! shall definitely do another one.
A beautifully presented starter kit for needle felting. It arrived really quickly too. I have enjoyed making the red squirrel and am nearly finished. It would be useful to have a “finished shape” photo of the body added to the guide booklet as an extra help when starting out. Thank you for ensuring everything is as plastic free as possible. I’m sure I’ll be back to buy more wool and I’m hoping to try the weaving kits too.
Red Squirrel Needle Felting Kit
My mum wanted to try out needlefelt as a new craft so I bought her the red squirrel for her birthday. She really enjoyed it and loves her new squirrel! The kit was easy to follow and kept her occupied for a few hours!
Only half way through but loving it so far, has given me the needle felting bug. Perfect for a gift with everything you need if you order with the foam pad.
