‘Would you like to learn some basic techniques for needle felting tiny toes/feet/hands? Here I demonstrate one of my techniques for making toes by wrapping wool over wire. I also prepare them ready to attach onto an animal called a solenodon (a strange shrew-like creature with a long tail and venomous bite). This quick 11 min tutorial is easy to follow step by step.’
As you know I often take photos of my needle felted creations as I go along and have posted various tips and tutorials on my blog so you too can follow the same steps. However I have been wanting to do a video for ages so finally it is here!
Whilst making the feet for the solenodon I used my Samsung s4 mini (hung from some string on a bendy lamp stand!) to video my hands as I shaped the wire and wrapped the wool over it. I used windows movie maker to edit it and added narratives and music. Not so impressed by the volume as my voice is not so loud if watching from a tablet or phone but I hope you can hear it ok.
Feedback welcome please for my first attempt. 🙂
