Finally this weekend I finished needle felting my little badger!
Thank you to those of you who voted on facebook or twitter for the next felted British animal of your choice! there were some great suggestions! The badger however was the obvious favourite and it is understandable why!
Badgers are just so adorable and at the moment they need all the help they can get….so here he is !!! he is a very happy and playful young badger and ‘fit to be loved!’
This little needle felted badger, just like all my other pieces is made of 100 % wool (a mix of merino and corriedale) and took many hours of labour but tonnes of love to give him his cute playful character.
He will soon be for sale in my Etsy shop and 20% of his sale price will be donated to the Badger Trust who are ‘working hard to help badgers, by tackling the threats they face, promoting their interests, and by providing vital help for around 60 local badger protection groups across England and Wales’.
For those who would like have a go at making your own needle felted badger -see my previous post which shows you step by step how to start off with a badger head.

wonderful badger head, my hubby is an ex-gamekeeper and well into wild life and conservation and has fell in love with these little badgers. is there a tutorial coming up for the body. I would be willing to pay.
Please keep these little gems coming, at the moment still in the basic stage, can’t try anything more adventurous till after I finish my degree course in June. Would like to think of this Badger as my first (grown up) serious felt sculpture.
Thank you so much for saying Gail. Glad your hubby approves too 🙂 I haven’t got a tutorial for the body but it was fairly straight forward. Happy to give tips when you eventually do have a go. 🙂
