Needle Felted Rooster – A needle felting tutorial
Needle Felted Novelty Rooster
A Needle Felting Tutorial on Innovation
By Marie Spaulding
The photos are telling…this is a very old project. I needle felted na ovelty, bass playing Rooster
as a gift for my Late- Mother-in-Law. (She loved Roosters and my husband began his music career as a bass player , so…)I made it long ago — it was inspired by a metal sculpture,
so I documented the process as I went along thinking one day I might share it. So…in honor of
Felted Birds and Winged Beings Week here at LIVING FELT … here it goes.
Please keep in mind – the tutorial is more to plant seeds of innovation than to give good techniques
for “needle felting” – my photos were more about what is “unique” for this sculpture.
