I needle felted these silly little woolly worms today over wire. I rarely use wire but this was easy and fun! I wrapped core wool roving around cloth covered florist wire, needle felted it using Felt Alive Super Duper Double Felting needles and covered them with Norwegian C1 premium felting batt - available Felt Alive Needle Felting Supplies

Meet the Droits!
Now you can learn how to make fun little needle felted creatures that I call Droits in my new 5 hour video workshop available on DVD or watch online!

The next Droit was red. This little guy has such a sweet, yet devilish personality - and the wool just did that, I didn't intentionally give him such a look - it just happened. Then very dark one appeared and next a Green one, then an old and Gray one.
A friend came over an took one look at this little family of characters and said one thing - He said "Droits" and the moniker stuck. They are Droits and they are fun to have around.
Each time my friend would visit he would sneak into my studio and gather the Droits and hide them around my house. They can hang from a lamp shade or a curtain rod, they can hide in a coffee cup in the kitchen cabinet and they love to hide in the bathroom too.
Kid's love 'em! My little niece, Chloe, made a Droit house!
And Droits simply love to play outside!
Needle Felted Droits are solid needle felted wool - they stand on their own and have a very natural range of motion without the use of wire armatures.
This fun workshop is 5 hours long and is a great way to learn needle felting!
