With this fabulous My First book, children aged 7+ can create a wonderful menagerie of adorable needle-felted animals. The projects will appeal to all young crafters, and are wonderful for children to keep for themselves or give as gifts.
Craft expert Mia Underwood begins with 2D projects, such as brooches and a bookmark, then moves on to simple 3D projects such as a cute hamster and a wide-eyed owl. Children can then progress their needle-felting skills by making dogs, a squirrel, a panda, a pony, and many more fantastic creatures.
There is a comprehensive techniques section so that children can perfect their needle-felting skills, and each project includes an adorable photo of the finished animal and is broken down into clear illustrated steps.
WARNING: Needle Felting Needles are barbed and sharp and not recommended for children under 10 years UNLESS they are extremely well supervised.
Children age 10 and older should also be supervised until they are well practiced and have the maturity level to understand the safety needed around such sharp, large needles.
Needle felting can be a LOT of fun for adults and children. Finger guards and tools to hold needles are often helpful to beginners. The tool will help children not drop the needle as much and also make it more visible if it gets left out or knocked into the floor.
