For this second BEGINNER felted swap, you will create a SIMPLE needle felted animal.

A FELTED animal is created by using wool roving and a special needle. This is a kinda fancy pants tutorial But, there are plenty of animal tutorials and your animal can be simple or more complex. It's sender's choice!

For this swap, you will create a simple needle felted animal.

You can use multiple layers to add color or cover the exterior with a different color roving.

Here are the item specifics:

You will create 1 needle felted animal, at least 2 inches in any one direction, but still 3 dimensional.

The color and animal are sender's choice. Once you sign up, you can start creating your animal.

Please include a little note to your partner with your name and the swap name. If this is your first time needle felting, you MIGHT want to comment about your experience and if you would like to try it again.

Here are the swap specifics:

You will need to send and rate your partner promptly. If you encounter any issues, you need to contact your swap partner and myself BEFORE the send by date.

Since this is a sender's choice swap, you can start right away and practice if you are a perfectionist. We all want to send and receive a piece that shows care and craftsmanship, but remember:

This is a BEGINNING needle felting challenge. If you receive a needle felted animal, with note identifying the sender and the swap, postmarked by the send by date - you will rate a five.

You need to have a well filled out profile and a valid address on file with NH.

Vetting my swap: Since this is a newbie swap, I will accept unrated swappers. However, I reserve the right to ban any swappers that I wish. If I ban you, I am open to creating a private swap.

It is my desire to create a fun, SAFE, type 3 craft swap giving you experience with a new media you might want to try in an easy, non judgmental swap.

I will angel, after you have communicated with your partner and rated a 1.

Please create, send on time, mark your swap sent, and rate promptly, ALL are your swap RESPONSIBILITIES.

Due to the recent shipping increases, I am making this USA only. If you would like to create an international version, you have my blessing to do so!

I found some great tutorials on Youtube for all sorts of different animals and am now really excited to learn this new craft!

It's SO fun and there are such varied levels of things to create! Remember, this is for a SIMPLE one, if you want to be "more advanced" you can try that, but I don't want anyone to feel intimidated. :)

I saw a cute hedgehog I think I will make. I have made a few leprechauns and a few worry dolls (ok 15) with this technique as well as my dog Annie who is a standard poodle. Oh and a bunny and I showed my sister how who made a chick. Boy that needle hurts when you miss. I got the finger guards but I am to clumsy with them.
