Want to get all warm and fuzzy this winter? Take a stab at needle felting. This no-sew technique is super for sprucing up sweaters, scarves, jeans and jackets. With the proper tools and basic know-how, you can master this method in no time. Needle felting uses a brush mat and needle tool to anchor yarn, wool or fabric pieces to a foundation fabric. You can find Clover Needlecrafting supplies and wool bundles on our site. We also have plenty of patterns adorned with needle felted details and several books featuring stylish projects. In this video, Amy demonstrates three needle felting techniques: yarn embellishment, fabric-to-fabric and fiber-to-fabric. Each method is delightfully simple and quick to finish. Plus it's strangely gratifying to stab a needle repeatedly through layers of fabric. Be warned: Once you start needle felting, you may require an intervention.
