A full needle felting kit with instructions for absolute beginners and more experienced alike. An easy to make lifelike robin. Each one made will be slightly different and therefore yours will be unique. Felting is not technically difficult but it does require patience and attention to detail. Everyone's natural abilities vary but anyone should be able to produce a little sculpture to be proud of.
Includes: A starter lesson and spare fleece to practice with for absolute beginners. Four felting needles (2 x 38 guage, 2 x 40 gauge) All the fleece you will need to make your robin A sponge to work on. ( I use basic sponges as they last almost as long as upholstery sponges and are about a quarter of the price. They are also easy to replace when they do wear out.) Wire for the legs plus extra for practicing with. Beads for eyes Full 8 page instruction booklet Not included: fine needle and thread for attaching the eyes
ONLINE SUPPORT if you have any problems or questions about your project.
All the above packed in a rigid cardboard box, tied with string and an old fashioned label. Posted in a plastic outer envelope to protect box.
These kits make fabulous gifts but are not suitable for very young children due to the very sharp, barbed needles used. ( I would recommend teen and up)
The kit and instructions were pretty good, but the box arrived a bit battered, and was very basic, and it was a gift so I had to re-package it. The yellow sponge made it look a bit cheap but the quality of the other items appeared to be good. I would recommend that a little extra care is taken on the packaging as it can really add value, especially as a gift.
