Needle Felting Realistic Cats, Lions, Tigers, etc! Needle felt a domestic cat, wild cat or other big cat.
Award winning artist Megan Nedds joins us from Ohio to share her techniques for needle felting incredibly realistic needle felted animals.
Megan has made hundreds of realistic needle felted animals and will share all she can fit into these 3-days to help you sculpt an amazing work of art.

During this 3-day class, we will be exploring feline characteristics while everyone makes their choice of cat.
Cats can be challenging to sculpt because they are uniquely shaped, but this class will help you achieve that signature feline contour.
We will also focus on cat faces and fine tune details such as coat and paws.

Megan says, “I love working with Living Felt’s MC-1 fast felting batts because they are the perfect consistency for felting. They are so soft and the colors are perfect. When I use them, I know my sculptures will turn out great!”

What a spectacular work of art!

“Forest Guardian” 8 inch hoop, all Living Felt wool and whiskers kindly donated by our cat Stryder. This was inspired by someone else’s tiger creation posted on here [Living Felt Friends Group] awhile ago (sorry forgetting names! ??). I loved it so much and wanted to take a crack at it myself later so here’s the end result!”
