Everything you need to complete the Florentine Bird Tapestry is in the kit.. except courage! You CAN do it! Needle felting is a technique that uses barbed needles and carded wool to decorate a felt surface with design. Simple design shapes and lots of colors combine to create a Florentine Bird Tapestry. You will begin with a simple tree, bending its way to the top of the canvas. You will learn how to needle felt fanciful and elaborate flowers, simplistic singing birds, ferns, vines and leaves. Each tapestry will exhibit the unique and personal characteristics of the artist within you. There are prompts to guide you through the formula, plus an abundance of color choices. Working on the black background eliminates the need to outline and makes the design shapes and colors pop out.
Along the way, you will build your needling skills, gain design experience and experiment with color. Simple design shapes combine to create beautifully unique and personal folk art. You will also gain insight into the basic principles of wet felting in a way that is straightforward and accessible using readily available equipment. The tapestry begins at 15 x 18 inches and comes together really quickly. UNLIKE MANY OFMY KITS, the pattern for this will not be traced onto the pre felt canvas. It is impossible to see through the black fabric, and the design included in the kit is too detailed for tracing.
I teach this class to NEW students and beginners of needle felting. They are always a little daunted by having to work without tracing the design, but by the end of the day, they are amazed that they could accomplish such beautiful results.

What really makes my kits stand apart from the rest? I provide you with the highest quality ingredients to ensure your success. The dyed wool is carded, not combed. The foam insulation board is a firm surface that grabs the fiber strands and helps to secure them in place. It also prevents your hand from bouncing which causes fatigue. The needle can penetrate the board easily, bringing the fiber strands with it. The needles are Groz Beckert and I know you can buy a million cheap needles from China, but it is SO WORTH having a better needle. These European needles are less brittle and less coarse for the fabric base. They are a 38 Triangular which is all I ever use for tapestry style needle felting. The Black Pre-felt is 19 Micron Merino wool. Because it is a delicate fabric, you will be needling through both layers that are included in your kit.
