Welcome to the irresistible, fantastical, adorable world of WOOLBUDDIES!
Master one of the simplest crafts around while creating twenty quirky and love-able creatures.
With just some wool and a needle, Jackie Huang shows how to needle felt a variety of shapes to create all-natural, handmade cuties – both tiny and large.
In this book, you’ll find instructions for making twenty of your very own buddies. From an adorably small guinea pig to a towering giraffe that stands over 11/2 ft/46cm tall. The sections are organised by complexity, although as you’ll soon see, there’s really very little skill needed to do this craft successfully while having fun along the way. Mainly, what matters is how much time you want to dedicate to making your buddy.
As you meet them, you’ll see that no two Woolbuddies are identical. Each character has intricate detailing that only needle felting can create. The step-by-step instructions will guide you to make the buddies look as they are pictured. I hope that you are inspired to explore your own imagination with this versatile craft. Whether you’re a first-time crafter or a felting pro, in no time at all you’ll have a bevy of delightful creatures to enjoy and share.
Woolbuddy began when former Lucas-film animator JACKIE HUANG wanted to find unique toys for his newborn daughter. After searching for months and coming up empty-handed, he decided to create Woolbuddy-a collection of premium, handcrafted stuffed animals that reflected the imaginative world he wanted to share with his daughter. Today, Woolbuddy boasts 300 characters enjoyed by adults and children alike. Jackie lives in San Rafael, CA.
