    Thank you for the variety of tips. They are great! Could you please make a tutorial of how to make noses? Especially the little ones like for mice.

    I like needle felting but I have a hard time knowing what size for eyes and nose, I had a chart that shows all the sizes of eyes, I would like one That shows all sizes of the noses, if you know what site to go to I would appreciate it thank you

    Hello, thank you for all the great tutorials….i have just started felting and boy, we get addicted quick to this stuff..lol. I have a question…I saw we can dye wool….instead of running out or waiting for a color. i want to learn how to dye carded wool. I did buy merino wool, but. I am having difficulty making it stick,little hard as it is such a finer wool. But, I know I will maternit one day….

    Hi Amanda

    I have found your tutorials but, hi was wondering if I wanted to use real glass eyes do you know how I insert them?



    • Amanda Adebisi says:

      i haven’t used real glass myself as i felt mine from wool but i imagine you would leave an eye socket area for the eyes to go and then use a decent craft glue or use eyes that have a hole at the back for thread to go through(like with buttons) so you can sew them in place.

    Thanks Amanda, for the black on black advice on eyes. I want to make a black short haired cat with a wire frame inside. Any tips greatly appreciated. Travy

      Dear Amanda , thank you so very much for your tutorials and sharing your insights….. not only on felting but your insights on life. I too have become addicted to felting in a very short amount of time and really appreciate reading and learning all that I can on needle felting. Thank you for the time and efforts in sharing, you blessed me today, clear across the pond in the state of washington USA. God is good! keep on felting!

        Hi Tracy, just been looking at pictures of this breed. Very cute! Are you copying a specific dog? You will want the eyes to show up being such a dark coloured dog. So you could use brown glass beads or if felting – from what I can see it would be good to do quite a plump rounded ball of wool for each eye as their eyes really stand out. I would use a ball of caramel brown, with darker brown blended in towards the middle. Then I would add a black centre as the pupil and a spot of white or cream onto the eye to make it look like the light is reflecting. (See my blog post on eyes to see what I did with other animals for the light reflecting spot) I would then outline the eye with a thin line of black and then around that a slightly thicker line of grey. Quite intricate but eyes are well worth it when finished. If you do each stage for both eyes at the same time it will be easier. These are just my thoughts but hope it helps. 🙂
