Cat Browny

You can create this cute cat Browny by following a few steps:

4. wrap colour wool around the tail and use a fine needle felting needle to secure wool

5. connect body and tail with wool and needle,

6. add lace and embellishments,

Miss Gnome

Miss Gnome is a cute little project and adds a little more complexity to your needle felting skills. I really enjoyed working on this project because gnomes are so cute and mystical creatures. I loved to watch cartoons with gnomes when I was a child.

1. Needle felt a cone shape with the base colour,

2. add a small ball for the nose,

3. add colour wool for the body,

4. add hair in the colour of your choice,

5. add colour wool for the hat,

6. add lace and beads to embellish Miss Gnome.
