Explore the possibilities of needle felting beautiful “art work” without having to be an artist! Use your embroidery machine and this tutorial to create beautiful needle-felted projects quickly and easily! This tutorial features four sweet baby animals - a kitten, a sitting bear, a standing bear, and a chick. Each design comes in two sizes - 4x4 and 5x7. The chick designs both fit into a 4x4 hoop, but one is smaller than the other.
The sweet baby girl vest pictured below is embellished with a needle-felted kitten design on the front and back. The little boy vest pictured below sports the chubby teddy bears.
Wool felt, wool roving and felted wool fabric are all recommended for use with these designs. For resources, check out the “Favorite Places” page.
Note - This tutorial was written especially for use with needle-felting machines. (However, it is also possible to use hand-felting needles to create these projects.)
