How To Needle Felt a Fox

Needle felting can be a fun way to create small stuffed animals with different colors of wool yarn roving. Add some pipe cleaners, some small felt clothes, a few stitches for eyes and a nose, and some practice, you can have an adorable fox, bunny, pig, mouse, dragon, or any another creature from your imagination.

In this CBC Arts video, artist Lesley-Anne Green demonstrates how she makes small needle felted animals with some diligent poking and stabbing of wool with a felting needle.
