Speed Felting a Needle Felted Snow Leopard Wool Painting

I tried out a new art form the other day 2d needle felting - or wool painting
This is my 2nd ever painting, I hope you all enjoy

I created my own transfer by drawing out my leopard with an iron on transfer pen (I used the sulky one in the link below - affiliate link) and I found it surprisingly easy to use
Then I ironed the image onto a piece of felt to give me a guide of where to felt. Then about 8 hours of stabbing later and this guy appeared

Etsy Challenge. One simple change a day to improve your Etsy SEO and your Etsy shop

For the month of April I decided to run a challenge for all of us


In the first video I give out my starting stats from the last month - so HOPEFULLY by the end of the month there will be a nice change.
The point of the challenge is every day we do one little thing that hopefully adds up to a big change
Also sometimes its overwhelming all the work you have to do in your shop - its better to get in the habit of doing one thing every day than trying to do it all at once. Its actually better for SEO to have constant activity - and you dont burn yourself out

Week one challenge is to use EtsyRank to change one listing every day to get it to an A grade

How To Needle Felt Tiny Hands

Hands in art can be the most difficult thing - 5 fingers look so crowded it looks like you have sausages and not fingers
and in needle felting its even harder as the fingers are so very tiny you stab yourself or break needles on wires

This is my method for felting small hands from around 1cm to 1 inch with the least hassle
