Basic Head & Arms Shape Instructions PDF (for Angels, Fairies & Figures)
This digital PDF will show you how to make the head and arms of a figure using our famous "Moustache Lollipop" Technique! From this, you have the starting point on which to build to create a wide range of fairies and other figures!
Please note that these are very basic instructions that will allow you to create the head and arms of your figure only. If you would like to make a hanging figure (without legs), you'll have the base made which you can then decorate to your liking by adding hair, decorations, etc.
These instructions do NOT show how to make figures with legs/freestanding base. You will find free tutorials on our website that will show you to do this here:
- How to Make Fairy Legs (and for other figures too!)
How to Attach Pipe Cleaner Legs to your needle felted figures
How to make a Standing Base Figure (from our "Mary" Makerss Make-Along)
The file download link will be automatically emailed to you a few moments after purchasing.
To make the basic head and arms as explained in these instructions, you will need:
Standard Core wool batts
- Your choice of skin-toned wool tops
- Extra Strong Pipe Cleaners
- Extra Strong Thread
- Medium Felting Needle
You will then be able to use your figure as a base to create an angel, fairy, sprite, character... the possibilities are endless.
You will also need further materials, such as natural or dyed wool batts, natural or dyed wool tops, hand-dyed curls, Angelina Fibre, etc to customise your figure! These instructions do not show you how to decorate your figures - that is up to your own creativity, but you will find lots of inspiration on our YouTube channel!
Suitable for beginners upwards!
