Feltie doggies

Inspired by the cute doggies on the cover of Mollie Makes, I thought I'd have a go at making one. I ordered all the bits and bobs and when it arrived, waited for a quiet moment when Ff was asleep and then got to work.

The process involved repeatedly stabbing a ball of fleecy wool with a barbed needle until the fibres are all knitted together and it forms a solid shape. From there you can join pieces or different colours together to create your desired shapes.

I fell in love with the lovely designs created by Gretel Parker, check out her blog at
And mine was a pale imitation! But I'm determined to have another go and see what else I can produce. Little J was certainly impressed with the results :0)


  1. If this was your first needle felting, then you should be very pleased with it! And the more you do, the better you get. :)

  2. Thanks Gretel, I am so pleased you liked it! Much appreciated coming from you ;0) I don't get much time to do stuff with the wee ones, so really enjoy it when I get a rare 5 minutes to myself! Will def have another go, want to try and make an owl next for Little Ff's room!
