This kit is something new and different in the world of hoop art. This modern take on a classic floral design is made by filling in a printed fabric picture with wool; the needle felted equivalent to working with an embroidery or cross-stitch pattern. Similar to paint-by-number but with fiber - makes a great gift!
Felting time: around 5 hrs. depending on individual felting speed.
Kit is beautifully packaged and includes:
Beginner's Guide to Needle Felting (a bit of general information)Instruction Sheet with tips and techniquesLink to video instructions (highly recommended!)Two color-coded felting needles in a handy paper tubeFelting woolLinen fabric pattern (printed in color)High quality 7 in. wooden hoopMuslin fabric square
You will also need:
Scissors and glue to secure the picture in the hoop once it is finished.
A mat to use as a work surface. Choose from foam or wool. Foam is the most economical but wears out the fastest. Wool is eco-friendly, very long lasting, and works particularly well for this project but is a higher up front investment.
This kit is intended for adults and kids over 10 yrs. who possess good manual dexterity, hand-eye coordination, and ability to work with focus and care. (Caution - felting needles are sharp!)
