Here is a tutorial on how to make needle felted feathers. If you're looking for a way to make your needle felted birds look more realistic, or if you want D.I.Y. feathers to use as an element in another project (such as a dream catcher), this tutorial will teach you how to do it.

My personal experience is that this works on feathers at least 2" in length or longer, so this will not work on tiny birds. If I figure out a way to make tiny feathers, I'll add another video to the tutorial link showing how to do so and update anyone who purchased this tutorial. Your access to this tutorial never expires.

There is no kit for this tutorial. Once purchased, you will gain access to download a PDF containing the link and password to the tutorial page.

You will need:
Merino top or merino silk blend wool in the color of your choice (I use white so I can then color it the way I want).
White core wool or something a bit coarser than merino (corriedale for example).
White cloth-wrapped floral wire.
Alcohol-based markers if you want to color them in a certain pattern. If you are doing plain feathers or using other colors, you won't need this. I use Copic markers with mine. Sharpies also work if you have them in the colors you need.
You will need felting needles and a foam block to support your work. I used 40-gauge spiral needles, which are also available in my shop if you need them. With the grips: http://etsy.me/2eSpKf4 or without: http://etsy.me/2ebgROn
