Needle Felting Kit: Ladybugs and Bees
Turn a handful of wool into a fuzzy, felted Ladybugs and Bumblebees. This needle felting kit will make at least 3 Ladybugs and 3 Bumblebees. These fuzzy sculptures can be made into cute little ornaments that will be treasured for years to come.
NOTE: Needle felting requires a firm, foam pad to absorb the felting needle while working on the project. Our charcoal foam is perfect for this craft and will last through many projects before needing to be replaced.

Until I saw these kits, I only had a vague idea what needle felting was... and it sounded complex, like crocheting. I was amazed when I saw a demonstration and realized that you don't need any fancy crafting skills to enjoy it. Basically, you take a strip of wool, roll it up, hold it on a foam pad and "needle it," inserting a felting needle over and over again until the wool shape becomes firm. On each insertion, the barbed felting needles interlock the wool fibers in essence "sculpting" a felt shape. You can even connect one shape to another shape (like an ear to a head) by needling the two shapes together. Each kit contains all of the materials you need to create an adorable animal, including wool, felting needles and any "extras" like beads, ribbon, etc (the exception is the foam pad, which is reusable over and over again; you'll need to purchase one of these separately with your first kit). Many kits create more than one project, so multiple children can do them together. Easy kits feature animals with simpler shapes than intermediate kits, but both work on the same principles. Go ahead, try this relaxing (even addictive!) craft.) Made in the USA.
