Brilliant

Really enjoyed the kit and it’s great that every thing I needed was in the box. Really clear instructions. A template of the shape and size I was trying to achieve would have been helpful. I was a bit out of proportion and needed to add on. The head was a bit bigger so ended up with a larger dog. But really pleased with the out come over all.

Thank you for your lovely review Stella. The instructions do provide measurements and an idea of the desired shape, but your feedback is valuable nonetheless and I will ensure gets passed to the Creative Design Team.

Loved making this little dog and learning new skills

This was my first experience of making a wire armature on which to form a needle-felted figure. I wanted to challenge myself! The instructions were comprehensive and offered helpful tips throughout, so I gained confidence as i went through each stage. It was lovely seeing my initial bits of twisted wire transform first into a ‘ghost dog’ made of white core wool, then come to life as I added the different colours to build his coat. And of course the eyes and nose really helped to create his face. I found the photos of real life dachshunds helpful to give me ideas as where to add bits of coloured wool to add more realism. My finished dachshund looked (according to my husband) like Kenneth Branagh, so he has been named after him and will always make me smile!

Your detailed review of this kit is fantastic Sue - thank you for taking time to write it. I'm sure it will be most helpful for others, like yourself, who wish to stretch themselves just a little further. Kenneth is absolutely adorable and we love his expression!

Happy little dog

I really enjoyed making little Harris. I’m quite new to needle felting but the instructions were clear and easy to follow. He now has pride of place in my front room.

If I can do it

I have found my thing, you know that thing that you want to do and be good at? This is it but I think it must 95% have something to do with the kit...so clear, so easy, even I managed it! It was fun and at the end I had created something I was actually very proud of! I’m hooked, best all round for service, ease of use and awesomeness!

So glad you love felting as much as we do Anna! :)

Easy Peasy

I started this little kit 3 days ago. Whwn I finally got to add the top layer of fur I thought it was going to look awful but low and behold once I added more fur as per directions it turned out beautiful
