If you have read our previous tutorial for needle felting hearts and plaited felted rainbow you will be a pro by now, however, these are really important points, so take a little time to have a refresh:
The process becomes intuitive the more you practice, but here’s our top tips to get you started with for needle felting using our Mammoth® yarn:
Be careful! Obviously, these needles are very sharp, and we want to avoid injuries! So, keep those digits out of the way of the needle, sounds obvious, but we need to mention it. Plus, this is not a suitable activity for children.
Protect your table. A couple of layers of foam blocks will do the trick, we don’t want your beloved crafting table to look like it has had woodworm!
Stab it with the pointy end… It really is that simple. If you have more than one thickness of needle, start with the biggest and when this doesn’t push easily through, swap it for a thinner one. The thinner needle will help with smaller detail and tidying up the surface of your work.
Turn your work regularly. If you zone out and stab for too long (perhaps thinking about an ex-partner?) you risk the work getting stuck to the foam blocks. So carefully peel it off and flip it over regularly, working on both sides.
Don’t forget the edges. Make sure you are stabbing all over, both sides and spending plenty of time around the edges, corners and points of the shape you are creating, folding in any frays.
Trimming is fine, just don’t get too snip happy! Using sharp scissors, you can neaten up the edges as your final step but be careful not to overdo it or you’ll end up with fraying or not alot left!
HOW TO MAKE THE FLOWERS
Here’s our step-by-step guide to making these very easy spring flowers using needle felting…
Step 1: Split your yarn into 5 equal pieces. Twist a piece in half as shown, holding at one end.
Step 2. Stab all over the petal shape, front and back and around the edges, lifting and turning regularly.
Step 3. Focus on the edges to define the shape further.
Step 4. Fold the petal in half lengthways and needle felt at the base to create this shape.
Step 5. Repeat the previous steps with all 5 lengths of yarn. Then join them together by positioning two together and needle felting the ends to secure.
Step 6. Continue to join each petal as before, overlaying the raw end over and working into the middle with the needle.
Step 7. Work a small piece of yarn into a ball and needle felt to form a circle, you may wish to add a second colour in the centre.
Step 8. Attach the circle into the centre of the flower with your needle by stabbing through the layers gently.
Step 9. If you wish, you could create a loop on the back as shown by using a thinner length of yarn as the tie, needle felt to the back of the flower with a second bunched up piece.
