chroniclebooks_125x125_bur1Our friend, master needle felter Jackie Huang, recently came out with an amazing new book, called Woolbuddies. In it, Jackie goes through the basics of how to get started needle felting, and then he shows you how to make animals that are simple, moderate, and challenging. His creatures are so gorgeous — they remind me of cartoon characters. Some of you may remember the tutorial for needle felting a Totoro that Jackie shared with us earlier this year.

Here’s an animated GIF showing how to make Amelia the Owl. Hoo! Hoo!
