Needle Felting Craft with Sophia Monsibais
Learn the art of needle felting with crafter Sophia Monsibais during this livestream program. Felting is the process of separating, tangling, and relocking animal fibers such as yarn or wool and has been in use since the Neolithic period (10,000 BCE!)
In this project, you'll be making an adorable felt penguin. You may choose whatever colors you like for your penguin. We suggest having three colors.
**Please keep in mind that the needle will have a sharp point so younger crafters may need assistance.**
Below you will find supplies that can be found at craft stores usually near the embroidery section. Supplies may also be bought online.
Wool roving (we suggest getting three different colors)
Optional: finger guards
