There are some added pictures below of the head at different angles to help you out... You don't have to add a mouth as I have if you don't wish to... but give it a go on a spare head just to get a feel for it :o))
Note I did add a little more shape on the sides of the mouth to add a smile..
I haven't used a smaller needle as yet...at this point I really don't think I'm going to need to... But that could change.. If your using real wool I would strongly suggest that you do to remove some of the bigger holes made by the courser needle.
Next part will be adding eyes, nose, hair and whatever else I may think he needs LOL
Well guys it was a busy day yesterday not only did I get the first and second parts to the tutorial done (second part coming) but I also got these done.. Toothbrush needles for toothbrush rugs.
Firstly here's a picture of the tools needed... I'm using a 34 gauge needle, it's great for those courser wools such as corriedale or as I'm using some craft fiber that not even real wool!! Thought I'd give it a go and see if it felts well and I'm pleased to say yes it does :o)) Right going off a bit so back to tools... needle for felting, good thick sponge to work on, your wool of choice and some plasters just in case :o))
Next will be the Head and Face... :o))
Well after much procrastination I've finally done something about getting my blog up and running LOL
I'm Sharon Hawkes formally of Mystical Bears ... I decided a while back that I needed a change in name as I was doing more and more Dolls and other crafty stuff so Mystical Bears didn't fit any more...so born was House of Pugish...slightly pompous but also fun I thought LMAO
I'm hoping this blog will be a fun place for everybody and maybe have a spot of learning as well! If you have other techniques you use don't be shy and comment... Goodness knows we never stop learning:o))
I will be adding a tutorial for needle felting a very cute caterpillar this week (hopefully tomorrow) it will be step by step as I make him/her, so visit regularly so you don't miss out...I will also have some auctions from time to time of what ever I happen to make ... I don't use ebay anylonger as the fee's have just gotten to be astronomical and quite frankly I want my customers to get the best bargin they can!!
If you have any requests be sure to ask me :o))
