This was my first attempt at needle felting an animal. I followed the tutorial previously referenced in the “little nest” post. I photographed the steps as shown below.
1) First I Google Image searched “bluebird” and printed out a visual reference. I needle felted the basic body shape in white. I decided to skip the legs and feet since she will be sitting on her eggs in the felty nest.
The whole process took about 2 hours. It was really pretty easy but requires patience. I recommend cleaning your felting needles with alcohol before starting, because it is likely you will poke yourself! I am by no means an expert on this…you should give it a try! Update: Here is another great bird making tutorial that I was reminded about!
