A Word About Needle Felting

Needle Felting is defined as: Piercing tufts of raw wool hundreds of times using a very sharp needle with tiny barbs to sculpt various shapes and figures.

I recently discovered the adorable world of Needle Felting while browsing around on Etsy. I am totally amazed by this beautiful form of art! The detail created on these pieces is truly astounding!

I loved it so much, I was compelled to curate a "Treasury List" featuring Valentine themed felties.

I urge you to join me in the admiration of these sweeties, and browse through the talented artists shops.

A special thanks to Purple Platypus for sharing my treasury on her Bits of Fiber blog.

Here's my treasury:


  1. Thanks Heather! I'm having a blast needle felting little (and bigger) creatures. So much you can do sculpting with fleece. It's really not that hard, it does take lots of poking with a very sharp needle so watch those fingers!

    1. Glad you're enjoying it! I may have to try it some time. I haven't even seen tools for it at my craft store. I'm kind of clumsy with needles. I tried working with a beading needle so I could add beaded embellishments to some of my Ami's and, OUCH!!!!, I poked myself SO many times!
