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? 🐈

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. There will soon be a part on the making and attaching of the cat ears and finally in this series, a tutorial on whiskers.

I hope you enjoy it 😊

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 Eyes Tutorial 2: How to make Realistic Needle Felted Cat Eyes

Would you like to know how to needle felt cat eyes that are detailed and realistic? Β πŸ‘πŸ‘Β 

This is the second in the series of my Needle Felted Eyes Tutorials following on from tutorial 1 on dog eyes.

It has everything you’ll need for planning and creating wool eyes for a cat.

I’ll first teach you the theory – eye size and position, eye anatomy, eye colours, eye shape and pupil dilation, before then demonstrating how to needle felt eyes on my latest Tabby Birman cat pictured here.

If you have never tried to needle felt cat eyes before or weren’t too happy when you did try then I encourage you to have a go, follow the steps in this tutorial, experiment and see what you think.Β πŸ™‚.Β 

If you already needle felted eyes before then I hope there is something in my video that will inspire you further.

Oh and beware of cute kitty footage along the way πŸ™‚

Thanks for watching πŸ™‚

What kind of cat eyes do you think you’ll have a stab at?

If you would like to know how I needle felted the cat head, made the ears, added the fur etc then these videos are in the making and will be released in the upcoming weeks πŸ™‚
