This cute project is quick and easy to follow, with clear instructions to guide you. It's perfect for beginners.
Needle-felting is a fun and mess-free craft. The best thing is, you don't need any fancy equipment! A cosy armchair, some snacks and a soft surface to work on is all you need.
To start needle felting you simply take a bunch of wool fibres and poke them with a needle all over until the wool knits together. This quickly forms 3D shapes. In no time at all, you can turn those shapes into a tiny lifelike creature. It's much easier than you might think.
The kit makes a brilliant gift for anyone crafty or for hedgehog lovers everywhere! It comes in a postable display box and includes full step-by-step photographic instructions to walk you through the project. Plus a beginner's guide to needle-felting techniques.
The finished hedgehog is a brilliant pocket buddy and cheers you up with a single squeeze. Give him to someone you love, especially if they struggle with anxiety or need cheering up.
Inside the kit, you will find everything you need to make your hedgehog. The entire product has been designed and hand made by us here in our studio in Hertfordshire, England. We have sourced a selection of high-quality wool fibres, which felt together beautifully. A combination of super fine merino and English top roving – the fluffy part of the fleece. There is also a special 38-gauge felting needle inside the kit. We have carefully designed this project so that it is super easy to master!
There’s no fancy equipment required for this craft. All you need to get started is a comfy place to sit and a soft surface to work on. A large sponge is perfect. Failing that, a piece of foam or a folded scarf will do. This is important because it will protect your needle from breaking and allow you to create flat felted pieces.
A little note: Your needle felting needle is very sharp and brittle so it’s a good idea to store it in the kit box. Please keep it out of the reach of children. If you are buying this kit for a child under the age of 12, we recommend that you provide supervision and ensure that they are very careful when using the needle.
