Bunny head pre recorded needle felting masterclass
The Bunny head needle felting masterclass takes you step by step through each stage of making your own cute bunny head that you can mount upon an embroidery hoop.
This is the video masterclass only and no physical felting pack will be sent to you. Please see my other listing for the complete felting pack with video masterclass.
➡️ building up the core shape of the rabbit head
➡️ how to make a realistic looking mouth and avoid a common error in making the rabbit's lips
➡️ learn how to make an eye socket for realistic looking eyes
➡️ a neat way for adding tidy looking patterns for the fur
➡️ how to make realistic shaped ears (and learn a little secret on how to fix them to the head!)
➡️ how to prepare your embroidery hoop and mount your bunny head
When you have finished your bunny head you will have learned how to proportionally build up a mounted head and how to align features and patterns with symmetry to create a well formed face.
Who is the masterclass suitable for?
Suitable for more confident beginners and those who are needle felters already who want to learn and develop their skills.
Are there any special requirements?
Good eye sight and somewhere comfortable to work is beneficial.
How long will it take to make?
This is quite a big project so allow around 6 to 8 hours to make your bird plus time overnight to allow the glue to dry. The step by step lesson style tutorial will enable you to easily pick up from where you left off if you prefer to spend a few days making your owl.
Children aged 11+ can needle felt with supervision from an adult due to the nature of the barbed needles being quite sore should you accidentially poke your finger with one.
These are NOT toys, they are decorative ornaments. Keep away from pets too!
Pre recorded video tutorial
The video tutorial has been broken down into 17 individual lessons to make it easy to follow. Each lesson will take you through the next step in making your bunny head.
When you purchase the video masterclass, a link will be provided with a password for the page the masterclass is hosted on. There is a PDF file on the page for you to print out. It contains a template for you to glue onto card and cut out.
Allow around 6 hours to make your bunny head.
You will need the following materials:
Core wool 50g
20g of coloured wool in Grey, Light Grey & White or Medium Brown, Light Brown and White
Embroidery hoop (8 inch)
A template sheet to guide you with the shapes and sizes is available on the PDF download.
You will also need the following tools/equipment
Felting needles and a mat to felt on
A tiny pinch of pale pink wool or a light pink felt pen or makeup (blusher)
Sharp scissors and a felt pen in light brown and grey
Embroidery thread and sewing needle
Optional but useful:
A glue gun is useful but not essential
Sewing pins to help with symmetry whilst working on your bunny
You may want to card the wool to blend colours, so carders will come in handy but it's not essential
