    Really? that’s all there is to it?! I always thought it was like knitting or crocheting (which I am constitutionally unable to do, although I have tried many, many times). This is great! I would really love to make some felt fruits and veggies for my son.

    I love those! A group of friends just had a felt playfood swap, I bet these would have been a hit. I’ll have to perfect a few food items for next year’s swap :)

    I actually think needle felting is a really cool craft and something I could do! What I really like about felt is its versatility, its durability. Felt is used to buffer sound and can even be worked into a piece of furniture. I think you would have enjoyed an exhibit on last spring at the Cooper Hewitt museum, which was ALL about the possibilities of felt.

    Anyways, have you tried felting onto an old blanket? To give it an embellishment?

    I LOVE this tutorial, Amber, and it’s so nice to hear your voice! You got me totally hooked on needle felting with your amazing video tutorial (did you put it together?!) and as my husband is going to be in the US next week, I’m going to get him to buy me a needle felting tool. Would you tell me exactly what kind/brand? (I think you mentioned it in a previous post, but your linkwithin didn’t pick it, and I don’t remember how long ago it was). Thank you!
    PS and I love any crafting for moms that puts babies to sleep:)

    Oh, I love needle felting! I tried it this summer and was so pleased with myself, I opened an Etsy shop! I’ve even sold some of my little creations!

    I tend to felt the wool tighter, so my little guys usually take about an hour each (due to more poking-HA HA). I just sold a Samuel Whiskers (from Beatrix Potter’s Tale of the Roly Poly Pudding) to a woman in Europe–my first international sale!!

    How do you like using the brush-like felting surface? I use foam–and bare felting needles (without a handle). I’ve even procured some raw wool I need to wash & comb into roving–as soon as I beat this ridiculous cancer, I’ll have to do that, eh?

    They’re so deliciously fuzzy! I think they’d be awesome stuck on anything! Maybe I’ll get one for my Dad’s moustache.

    I always wondered how that was done.
    (of course I never inquired either)

    Cool! I was waiting for you to post this video. I didn’t understand how to mix the colours but I now I see. I like the egg. I really like felt food and now I can see a whole world of wool food opening up before me.

    I like the video. Needle felting is something I think my girls’ will like…and since the close up shows you wearing a Band-Aid it adds an element of danger…so it’s a manly enough craft for Daddy’s too :)

    Seriously, great video!

    (you said “um” 113 times…I counted…just kidding :)

    I love your tutorial! I’ve been wondering how it’s done since I bought a beautiful felted ball for the baby (made by local artists in Orcas Island).

    Great video. Someone has some skills I see! Watching this has given me a lot more confidence in being able to do this. I just didn’t know the first thing about what the tools looked like or anything. So THANK YOU for this video. Super duper helpful. I think I’m gonna go tweet this for the second time!

    I knit and felt purses and am looking at doing some needle felted embelishments on the purses. Not sure what I need or how to do it as yet but very interesting
