Nuts about needle felting

This kit is aimed at improves but is perfect to start learning how to to armatures as the framework is not to complex. This kit was really fun to do and it the perfect kit to do if you want to see a red squirrel every day.

The Crafty Kit Company Highland Red Squirrel Needle Felting Kit Review

The Crafty Kit Company

The shaping of the armature can definitely be tricky to begin with, but it looks like you made a great job of your Red Squirrel!

Squirrel Nutkin!

This kit is very well presented and detailed and I loved making the squirrel. It did take rather a long time but the end result was worth it. I took my time with the body shape and the beautiful coloured orange wool on top made him come alive. I gave him a pine cone to hold! These improvers kits are worth it and I have now also made the fox and rabbit with pride. I am building my collection. Thanks again. Angela Adkin.
