Gotta love that Wombat

I will be spending the next few weeks learning about this little guy! Who knew felting baby mobiles could be such a great way to learn about all these amazing species in the world?


Noun: A burrowing plant-eating Australian marsupial (family Vombatidae) that resembles a small bear with short legs. Two genera and three species include the common wombat(Vombatus ursinus).

What is Needle Felting?

Needle Felting:

Piercing tufts of raw wool hundreds of times using a very sharp needle with tiny barbs to sculpt various shapes and figures.


Needle Felting Instructions

Tools of the craft…

Felting Needles

Felting Needles of Various Sizes and a Block of Foam


These needles can be used inside a felting tool that offers a better hand hold or by themselves.

As the needles are long and sharp, a foam block protects you from getting poked under the wool you are felting.


Clover Tool and Wool

Felting Tool

Plant-Dyed Wool


With these tools and a good supply of wool, you are set to felt to your heart’s content! I would recommend some great tutorials on YouTube as well as picking up excellent Felting Books like Kyuuto! Japanese Crafts: Fuzzy Felted Friends at your local library.
