Call me dumb, lol, but how do you get the patterns? Want to make for twin grandchildren's birthday party for thank you's.

Thank you .

HOw do you do the eyes? Do you have a step by step instruction for them?

How do you get the eyes like that?!

They are needle felted on :)

Do you use regular sheet felt or wool like you would normally use for needle felted stuff? I've never seen eyes look so cool, so I'm super curious!

I used to use a combination of sheet felt (for the whites of the eyes) and wool, but now I'm moving more towards using all wool.  You should give it a shot!  It takes a little practice but I really like the result :)

I might have to do that! Thanks for the tip!

No prob!  Oh, I would also suggest buying coarse needles.  I've found that they work better on crocheted stuff at least..

AGH. I saw this and said to myself, "Oh, what a cute little bulbasaur! WOW, those needle-felted eyes look AMAZING; I better rant to this person about how amazing they are and complain about how awful I find needle-felting," but then I saw it was you. ;) And I think you already have heard this exclamation of love for your needle-felting skills before.


I think I chucked that thing into an abyss in my room. My needle felting pen-thing.


But anyway, he is so cute and those eyes look really perfect for that face. I love him already.

Don't give up!! :nuu:  I tried it way back then and dropped it for a while until I saw all the amazing needle felted works from different artists with all kinds of crazy color combinations so I knew it wasn't impossible to do!  You will get it :)  Just keep layering on the wool and it eventually starts looking smoother and nicer.  It really is so rewarding once you get the hang of it!

I'll give it another go someday. Maybe once summer comes back around and I have a little more personal time. it intrigues me so much, I don't think I will be able to give up on it for too long. ;)
