Needle Felted Feathers

IMG_4845

So, why would you want to felt feathers when you can just go and buy them?  Well, I do want to learn how to make birds, especially chickens and roosters, so it would be useful to learn how to make realistic feathers, don’t you think? I came across the website of Mum’s Makery where they make all sorts of templates for all sorts of lovely things.  And, there is a video tutorial on how to make them.  I have some other ideas than just using them for chickens!
