I'm fairly inexperienced at needle felting and was wondering how you make your works look so neat and tidy without over-needling(??) them. Do you want the parts to be tough and hard, or should they still be squishy? And what's the best way to combine parts, such as a head to a body, without distorting the shape? Which kind of felt is best for little details, and for long hair? Sorry for all the questions! You're just so good at this, and you helped me out when I was first curious about this type of art!

I do felt my creations to be pretty firm, I start with a 36 needle and work my way down to a 40 needle. I feel they keep their shape better if they are felted firmer. I like Romney for most creations and alpaca, merino and mohair for longer hair. No worries on the questions I'm happy to help. So sorry for my delay in responding, it's been quite a while since I've been on here. I've been on a break. Thanks again! :)

That's gotta be one of the most adorable things I've ever seen. The needlefelting is perfect, his little face makes the heart melt, and putting him safely nside a little nutshell is a beautiful touch.
