These little fairies came to life in my new 2017 doll making video. You'll learn the art of making fully jointed bodies (without wire armatures) that bend and flex nearly like you and I! The techniques for making these sweet little faces are magical. From start to finish and every step in between. No high speed sequences that leave you guessing, just 9 hours of relaxing needle felting instructions - straight from my Felting Pad!

Join me at my felting pad and experience the simple joy of sculpting with wool. Learn to needle felt these sweet little faces - needle felted eyes and teeth are especially magical. You'll learn the process of making fully jointed needle felted bodies that flex and bend with a realistic range of motion. Finally, you'll learn how to needle felt her fairy dress, slippers, wings and hair! No sewing, no stuffing, no painting and no wire armatures. It just takes wool and a felting needle!

These little fairies are about 10" long and weigh less than two ounces. They are fully jointed (no wire armature needed!) and flex and move like they are alive!

Took My Skills to a New Level (and it was FUN)
My first DVD workshop from Kay and Felt Alive was the Santa one (reviewed) and I knew I HAD to order the full doll workshop. And I'm SO GLAD I did! It was everything I expected and hoped it would be. This workshop is easy to follow along, has wonderful examples and tips, and I learned a great deal from it! It has really amped up my needle felting skills, and confirmed to me that sculptural needle felting the Felt Alive way is my favorite way to create nearly living characters! I loved that during the DVD, Kay showed options and usually several ways to achieve the best end results, and she was very good and consistent with going over techniques, even more than once, to be sure the basics were solidly learned. And I think my favorite thing, and best lesson learned, was Kay's gentle and persistent message that the wool leads the journey of your end product. That no two characters (not even two of your own work) are ever the same, and that we should be comfortable and enjoy the imperfections and variations that working with a living fiber can bring. Hands down, this was the best video lesson I've found for teaching needle felting. If you were to learn nothing but what Kay teaches on this workshop, you could make anything!
