Hi, my name is Amanda Adebisi of ‘Fit to be loved’. Welcome to my website where I hope you will enjoy browsing through the pages and keep coming back for more.
As a Needle Felting Artist and Tutor, my passion is to inspire people like yourself through my unique style of sculpting detailed and realistic wool animals.
My in depth tutorials often include aspects of animal anatomy, ecology and behaviour, and provide the knowledge and tools you need to confidently needle felt and be proud of your own creations.
I’d love to support you on your needle felting journey, so whether you are a beginner or at a more advanced level I’ll help you learn this amazing art form step by step so you too can make your own beautiful needle felted animals.
I have many options available depending on what you are looking for and your learning style:
- Head over to the tutorial page to get stabbing with my FREE library of picture and video tutorials.
- Attend a live class with me – grab your spot at one of my upcoming group classes here.
- Book a one to one trouble shooting session with me – if you need some one to one tuition and direction on a needle felted animal project.
Fit to be Loved Needle Felted Animals
Fit to be loved’ animals are one of a kind and lovingly handmade through the art of needle felting. Each detailed and lifelike animal sculpture can take many hours of love and labour.
To ensure they are of the highest quality, all animals are made with carefully selected wools that are ethically sourced and beautifully textured. I mainly use corriedale as a core wool and merino wools over the top. I choose and blend colours to get just the right tones to suit the animal. The wools are soft to touch, and I layer and trim them in such a way to resemble natural animal fur.
Sometimes sculptures will have a wire armature inside for stability and structure.
Each animal is created to be as realistic as possible whilst also being full of soul, character and cuteness.
Once finished I write a short blog post about them here on my website and some will go up for sale in my Etsy shop.

bonjour, merci pour votre message. Vous pouvez suivre ma chaîne youtube avec des légendes en français ou lire mes tutoriels ici en français en choisissant votre langue en haut. Je n’ai qu’un seul tutoriel pdf pour faire une abeille mais il est en anglais. Beaucoup de photos, donc assez simples à suivre.

Thank you so much for your comment. I’m so pleased to know you find it inspiring. This is why I do it so that means so much for you to take the time to say it. 😊
Have really enjoyed your tutorials. I have made a badger with your help, but could not find a fox – has there been one.
Hi Rose. Great you made a badger. Would love to see how it turned out. I made a fox (see gallery) when i first started but didn’t show technique. I wrapped wool over a wire frame and added wool shapes to give it a fox like anatomy. Then did the long fur technique (see my tutorial)
Great tutorials! Thanks so much.
So nice of you to say. Thanks Nicole.
