There is no sewing involved yet there is a needle. Felting needles do not have an eye but do have sharp barbs. All you need to do is moving the needle straight up and down. Stab it as hard as you like – a stress relieving motion.

Wood be Gnominee

Who will be your nominee? Since each one of these wood gnomes has his only personality is will definitely be hard to chose.

Theses needle felted gnomes are super easy to create. The gnomes are made by shaping wool roving and then melding the fibers into each other by poking it up and down with a felting needle. A felting needle does not have an eye so there is threading involved – yeah! Instead a felting needle has tiny barbs on the side near the needle point. I used medium sized needles or 86mm. You will find yourself addicted to making them. Click here to key into the gnome only video.

   We used Quilter’s Dream brand wool batting as we love their products. You can use other brands of wool batting. If you are a quilter, this is the perfect way to use scrap batting. Wool roving will work fine. Wool is the key to every needle felting project.

   The other thing you need is a felting needle. We used a medium sized or 86mm needle These needles not only sharp points but also have tiny very sharp barbs. Make sure to use caution and know where your fingers are in relation to the needle and you avoid poking yourself. Needle can bend and even break if forced or not used in a straight up and down motion.

    We suggest a needle felt surface. However you use a thick foam. For this base, you can do with out a felting mat. It is just nice to have.
