Fit to be loved felts and tutorials

Fit to be loved felts and tutorials

I am so pleased you have found yourself here on the ‘Fit to be loved’ Website! I hope you enjoy browsing through the pages and keep coming back for more.

‘Fit to be loved’ needle felted animals are one of a kind and lovingly handmade from pure wool. Each detailed sculpture can take many hours of love and labour. Once finished I write a short blog post about them and some will go up for sale in my Etsy shop.

Want to learn how to needle felt?  as well as creating cute felt creatures I also like to post tips and tutorials to show how you too can enjoy this amazing art form step by step and make your own needle felted creations!

You can find out more about me and about how my blog started here

To see what I am making next whether it be a new animal or planning a new tutorial you can follow me on Facebook or Twitter. (I am also on instagram and Pinterest)

beige-owl How about a ‘Fit to be loved’ art gift? I now have a fantastic range of gifts on offer in my Zippi shop (coasters, mugs, bags, canvas prints, cushions, phone and ipad covers etc). The design on each gift is from an original watercolour and acrylic mix painting by me of some of my favourite needle felted animal characters.

 

To ensure all the animals I make are of the highest quality they are made with carefully selected wools from World of Wool. The wools come in a brilliant range of colours and are beautifully textured. You will see in my tutorials that I mainly use corriedale and merino wools as they are easy to felt with and feel soft next to your skin. They also resemble natural animal fur when layered.

Have fun and enjoy this wonderful art of needle felting!

    • 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)
