This needle felting kit will help you to learn the basics of needle felting a three dimensional “sculpted” turkey. You will learn how to create a core shape in the form of a turkey body using an alpaca stuffed nylon knee high, build and attach a neck and head, apply outer colors, create and attach feathers, wings, eyes, a beak, and a wattle.
Great kit for adults, or children ages 10 and up with adult supervision.
Needle felting is a simple and fun craft, no knitting, crocheting, or following a pattern required. Poking repeatedly with a barbed felting needle tangles the fibers together to create a solid fabric, in this case a three dimensional sculpture. When finished with this project, you'll have an adorable Turkey for your Thanksgiving decorating, or to give as a gift! Poking with a sharp needle is also good stress relief!
The finished felted Turkey is an example of what your finished project will look like. This listing is for the kit only.
