Fit to be Loved Felted Animals and Tutorials

Fit to be Loved Felted Animals and Tutorials

Welcome to the ‘Fit to be loved’ website! I hope you enjoy browsing through the pages and keep coming back for more.

‘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.

Would you like to learn how to needle felt detailed and realistic animals?

Whether you are a beginner or at a more advanced level you can learn this amazing art form step by step and make your own needle felted animal creations with confidence:

  1. Head over to the tutorial page to get stabbing with my picture and video tutorials.
  2. Join the Needle Felting Realistic Animals Facebook Group.
  3. Book a one to one trouble shooting session with me. This is for if you are stuck on how to continue with an animal you are felting or you are not sure where to begin, or maybe you need some direction on how to improve your skills or correct a mistake.

Have fun felting!

    • 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.

    • 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)
