little felted animals book

7 Jun

Little felted animals by Marie-Nöelle Horvath was the first needle felting book that I bought. It has diagrams for each animal and they are to scale (which is very helpful for the beginner). This book is a must have. It has several different animals to choose from and they are just so adorable! It’s great for learning proportions and core shapes. You can also adapt the diagrams to make other animals not featured in the book. The photography throughout the book is just lovely. You just want to make them all!

I made the koala and penguin  from this book. The cuteness factor is undeniable.

The platypus isn’t in the book, but I just wanted to show an example of an adaptation.

    Really enjoying your entries. Have just started creating animals ourselves, but we’re wet felting and they’re quite a bit larger than yours. It’s amazing that people seem to love them instantly!
