Bunny Head needle felting video tutorial (NO WOOL will be posted to you)
(You do not need to purchase this separately if you have purchased the complete Bunny Head felting pack)
This is the Bunny Head needle felting instructional video tutorial that has been broken down into easy to follow lessons so you can follow along at your own pace. No physical product will be sent to you.
The passcode will be provided to you in a PDF download which also serves as the template sheet to guide you with the shapes and sizes. Download the PDF and then the video tutorial can be found on a passcode protected page on my website which you can find by heading to the 'tutorials for kits' page in the header menu.
➡️ building up the core shape of the rabbit head
➡️ how to make a realistic looking mouth and avoid a common error in making the rabbit's lips
➡️ learn how to make an eye socket for realistic looking eyes
➡️ a neat way for adding tidy looking patterns for the fur
➡️ how to make realistic shaped ears (and learn a little secret on how to fix them to the head!)
➡️ how to prepare your embroidery hoop and mount your bunny head
When you have finished your bunny head you will have learned how to proportionally build up a mounted head and how to align features and patterns with symmetry to create a well formed face.
BONUS LESSON!! I've also included a bonus lesson on how to make needle felted eyes and am confident that this will be a game changer on how you make your eyes in the future!!
You will need the following matrials to make one bunny head
50g or white core wool (I used Corridale)
10g of a dark animal colour of your choice
5g of a lighter colour for highlighting around the eyes
5g of white
Two marbles for eyes 16mm
Hessian and an 8 inch embroidery hoop
You will also need the following tools/equipment
Felting needles and a mat to felt on
A tiny pinch of pale pink wool or a light pink felt pen or makeup (blusher)
Sharp scissors and a felt pen in light brown and grey
Embroidery thread and sewing needle
Optional but useful:
A glue gun is useful but not essential
Sewing pins to help with symmetry whilst working on your bunny
You may want to card the wool to blend colours, so carders will come in handy but it's not essential
How long will it take to make?
This is quite a big project so allow around 6 hours to make your bunny. The step by step lesson style tutorial will enable you to easily pick up from where you left off if you prefer to spend a few days making your bunny.
Who is the video tutorial suitable for?
Suitable for more confident beginners and those who are needle felters already who want to learn and develop their skills.
Are there any special requirements?
Good eye sight and somewhere comfortable to work is beneficial.
Children aged 11+ can needle felt with supervision from an adult due to the nature of the barbed needles being quite sore should you accidentially poke your finger with one.
These are NOT toys, they are decorative ornaments. Keep away from pets too!
