How to Attach Long fur to Your Cat Head

Would you like to know how I needle felted the long fur on my Tabby Birman cat? ๐Ÿˆ

Here is a video tutorial with techniques of how to blend wool colours, plant (attach) long fur to your cat head, layer the wool pieces, reverse felt wool in some areas (for blending, gradients and fluffy fur), create tabby marking patterns and trim wool.

It’s great if you would like to make realistic cat fur!

This is part 3 of 5 in my series of Needle Felted Cat Head tutorials.

I hope you enjoy it ๐Ÿ˜Š

Here is the next tutorial for making the cat ears. There will soon be a tutorial on whiskers too to complete the series.

If you missed the previous 2 videos or would like to rewatch them:

  • Tutorial one for Needle Felting a Cat Head Shape is here.
  • Tutorial two for short fur is here.

There is also a time lapse video of the whole head showing footage of the amazing process from start to finish here.

Or if you’d like to see exactly how the cat’s eyes were made purely from wool, then you can watch the tutorial here.

Needle Felted Cat Head – Short Fur Tutorial

Are you needle felting a cat with short fur? or a long haired cat that has shorter furred areas?

This is part two in my series of Needle Felted Cat Head tutorials as demonstrated on a Tabby Birman sculpture!

I’ll teach you how to blend colours by layering wool and reverse felting. There’s also some planting of longer strands and trimming…

You’ll be adding short fur to the bridge of the nose, the cheeks, whisker pads, chin and around the eyes. I’ll also share my technique for whisker dots ๐Ÿ™‚

So here is the video on needle felting short fur:

The next part (three) for needle felting long fur on your cat is here.

Part four for felting cat ears is here.

There will soon be a part on whiskers. I’ll share the link when it’s up ๐Ÿ™‚

Needle Felted Cat Head Shape… in 10 Steps!

I’ve found that Needle felting a cat head really doesn’t need to be hard if you break it down into stages, have a plan and are patient with yourself and the process.

Following on from the time lapse video of the cat head process, this is Part One in the series of actual tutorials. Here I slow the footage down and demonstrate how I Needle Felted the ‘Cat Head Shape’ from core wool.

You are just 10 steps away from creating your own!. I hope you enjoy it!

NEEDLE FELTED CAT HEAD (Time lapse) ๐Ÿฑย 

Needle felting a cat head doesn’t need to be hard. Does it? ……no…..It just takes a little practice and patience ๐Ÿ™‚

Here I reveal the amazing process of creating a needle felted cat head.

I videoed how I made the tabby Birman cat head for my cat head tutorials but as I’ve been poorly and my throat far too sore to record any instructions I thought I’d initially create a time lapse of all the footage. Hours of needle felting sped up to less than 14 minutes!

I don’t know about you but I found it quite fun and relaxing to watch it all back! I hope you enjoy seeing the process and I hope it inspires you to have a stab at making your own cat ๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿ˜ป

So here is the needle felted cat head time lapse ๐Ÿ™‚

Once my throat was better I started to make the actual tutorials where I slow it all down with full instructions.

So here are the tutorials so far:

  • Tutorial one for making the cat head shape isย here.
  • Tutorial two for short fur isย here.
  • Tutorial three for long fur is here.
  • Tutorial four for cat ears is here.

The final part five on whiskers is still to come! I will put the link to it when released.

Also if youโ€™d like to see exactly how the catโ€™s eyes were made purely from wool, then you can watch the tutorial here.
