Here is my FIRST Needle Felted cat! She is supposed to be a Persian Kitten! Well, I tried!! You have to start somewhere right? I have people who get discouraged because they can’t make the type sculpture that they want with their first few tries. I have been needle felting for over 3 years, and I still struggle with cats ! I am allergic so haven’t been around them much. Because of this. I’m not as familiar with a cat’s anatomy. I have had to study and sketch cats to understand their make up.
This is a good way for everyone to start. Whenever you make a sculpture, try to improve one area as you work. Then when you make your next sculpture you will be able to have that spot looking good. Do this little by little and you will see your advancement! Here is a black and white Tuxedo cat that I made recently. I do still struggle and take much more time on cat sculptures compared to dog sculptures. But I do try to improve an area as much as I can.
Don’t get discouraged! Keep on felting!
