woolbuddy felting kit review

Back in December, Fun.com asked if I’d do a needle felting kit giveaway, so I asked if you guys were interested and you all said yes!

So here we are.

Our kits arrived just before Christmas, while my girls were all sick.  But happily, wool felting is something that can be done while one convalesces on on the couch.

Which means they all dove right in.

Zoe made this adorable penguin, with a little help from me.

And Lisey made this sheep all on her own.

He kind of reminds us of Bob the Sheep from Shaun the Sheep.

Definite resemblance. 

Sonia’s still working on her turtle, as he ended up being the most difficult of the three kits.

The Woolbuddy boxes come with wool, directions, and two felting needles.

If you’ve never wool felted before, you’re probably wondering what in the world the needle is for.

Welp, it’s a sharp needle with small spikes running up the needle.  You shape the wool into the shape you want and then drive the needle in and out.

The spikes catch the wool and bind it together to secure the shape you’re making.

(It’s possible to poke yourself, so Zoe exercises caution by wearing All Of The Thimbles.)

Needle felting takes a little bit of practice, but fortunately, we’d done a few wool-felting kits before, so this was easier than our first go-round!

If this is your first time, we highly recommend the penguin.  Also, the other round animals (the frog and the owl) would be fairly simple.

I liked that these kits came with two felting needles because in our experience, felting needles are very prone to breaking!

The only bummer about them is that they did not come with a felting mat.  A felting mat is useful especially when you have to make flat pieces, like the turtle’s flippers.

Fortunately, we had a few from our other kits.

If you don’t have any around the house, just scrounge up a thick piece of foam and that’ll work fine.  Or if you opt for one of the round animals, you really won’t need a felting mat at all.
