5 Cozy Needle Felting Ideas for the Winter


by Hana Sugasawa

Ignite Studio’s kit library offers a needle felting kit that comes with everything you need to start on your personal needle felting project.  In this blog I will be sharing 5 cozy needle felting ideas for winter as well as some helpful resources for inspiration.

What is needle felting?

Needle felting uses a long, thin needle which has a series of notches at its tip. When you poke this needle into and out of the wool, these notches tangle the fibers of the wool together, and as you felt, the wool will start to feel firmer, and will shrink in size.
