Instructions to make a Needle Felted Sleepy Badger - this is a digital download only

Ensure that you are able to open PDF documents before purchasing. 


Suitable for beginners and improvers.


Created by Jo Gardiner, these instructions will show you step by step, how to make your own beautiful needle felted Sleeping Badger.


There are 8 pages of instructions including 60 photos and also a size guide page.


You will make a Badger  that is approximately 8 - 9 cm at its widest (you can size up if you feel confident enough.)


You will need to purchase or have access to:


•    Core wool - off-white coarse wool

•    Bergschaf wool - grey or a similar coarse wool

•    Corriedale  or Merino - black, white and sand/beige 

•    Felting mat

•       3 x  Felting needles - sizes     36, 38 & 40

•    Finger protectors (leather)

•       Scissors


Details of UK suppliers are contained within the instructions.  You can use similar products from other suppliers, just ensure that you buy coarse wool where advised - suppliers should be able to advise you regarding this.


This craft requires the use of very sharp needles, therefore it is not suitable for young children.  

The finished Item is ornamental and is not a toy

No refunds will be issued once purchased - due to it being a downloadable file


Warning - needle felting can be very addictive - but it is also incredibly therapeutic and a great way to be more mindful 😊
