Sturdy foam or wool pad

Each of the proceeding videos includes step by step instructions that walk you through the steps to needle felt a three-dimensional snowman. The little snowman I create will make his way into a future illustration of a children’s book of Lichendia. Thanks to our community of needle felting artists, the lessons include just a bit of light banter that captures where we are in our lives at this point in time.
