Needlefelting 101!

Last weekend I had the fun opportunity to teach a needlefelting workshop at the Craft Happy one-day crafting retreat. My students said the same thing time and time again. First, that they were intimidated to try it. Then, about halfway into the class, that they were amazed at how easy it was! On Spoonful today I shared an article that demystifies needlefelting with explanations of how felting works, how to choose wool and needles, and other basic terms and techniques to get you started.
It really is easier than it looks! Here is a quick video that shows how simple it is to needlefelt a basic ball and then add details to make it into the cute little fox pictured above.
