Okay, this is my first needle felted project.  The dog, some kind of bearded collie/lab/poodle mix,
looks kinda wonky, but was sooo much fun to make!  Needle felting feels like sculpting with fiber.
 
Sorry for the crappy photo.

Here's the short instructional video from the British show Crafts Beautiful that inspired me to try needle felting:

The part about needle felting starts at 2:50.

I love your dog and I am glad you left him so fuzzy. It looks so real!  You did a great job, and thanks for the Youtube visit. Some great ideas there.

I love your dog! The video was fun to watch -  I love that there are almost 29,000 views of it. I want to try to felt something 3-d now; I was under the impression that you really could only make flat pieces but this opens up all sorts of possibilities!

I haven't seen the video yet ! But I'm going to ! 3D felting is much more fun than felting flat pieces (needle felting flat pieces takes an eternity). It's just like sculpting ! Have a try !

One question - do you buy a felting needle for the 3 dimensional felting, or some other sort of needle?

You felt with the same needles (the square ones with hooks on the edges). I tend to use the thinner ones more for 3D than for flat feltinf, because the wool becomes really stiff, so you need a thin needle to go on poking.  Smiley
