Needle Felted Spaniel Now Available

A while back I needle felted the head of one of my favourite breeds of dog, the Springer Spaniel. I was so pleased with how he ended up and he has since featured in quite a few of my Youtube tutorials including ‘How to make Realistic Needle Felted Dog Eyes’ and ‘How to Needle Felt Wavy/Curly fur’. I am sure you may have seen this loveable floppy eared pooch by now 🙂

Well, he is now available to a good forever home!!

  • He will come as a head and shoulders portrait in a frame so you can put him on your wall or on a shelf.
  • As his new owner you will be able to name him and decide on the colour of his soft material collar and whether you would prefer a light or dark frame for him.

Maybe you love spaniels or have a friend or family member who loves them as much as I do and would love to provide a new home for him. I will really miss seeing those big soppy eyes around the place but I just don’t have the space to keep all my felted animals long term.

As with all my needle felted animals he is not a toy but a wool sculpture to be admired and cherished. So please don’t pull at his ‘fur’, get him wet or try to brush him. Please keep him somewhere safe and away from pets and small children. Thank you

How to Needle Felt Wavy/Curly fur

Would you like to know how to quickly and easily needle felt wavy/curly fur?

In this video tutorial I show you how to create realistic luscious, textured waves of fur as seen on my spaniel’s floppy ears!

There’s no need to use curling tongs or make plaits or wind wool around knitting needles, waiting hours for wet curls to dry or even having to buy additional locks of curly wool. In fact all you need is just your wool (I use merino tops), your barbed needle and your fingers to make a twist!

I’ll also give you additional tips on blending wool colours!

This technique can be used on many needle felted animals. I hope you have fun with it like I did!

Here are the time stamps to easily navigate to the bits you would like to watch most :

I hope you enjoyed it and it gave you some new ideas.

What animal do you think are you going to add wavy fur to? please let me know in the comments – I’d love to know. 🙂

In my next video I’ll show you how I made his eyes.
