Needle Felting a Wool Sundrop

The following video lesson includes step by step instructions, perfect for anyone new to needle felting. The tutorial takes you through each step of creating your very own wool sundrop. Since we all learn differently, the video lesson is followed by a series of still image galleries for you to see detail images of the steps in the process. This approach allows you to click through at your own pace and also watch and listen as I create a sundrop on video. The magical story of sundrops is brought to life in The Sun Fairy, the second children’s book in the Lichendia series. Thank you for creating and (if this is your first project), welcome to Lichendia Felting!

Felting Master Tip
Let creativity be your guide. There is no right or wrong way to design a sundrop. Just enjoy the art of needle felting!
