Needle Felting and Stop Motion Animation

by Zee Kesler

Needle felting and stop motion animation are two of our favorite things! Once you've tested the waters with felting basics, you can learn to make armatures for inside your felted creations so you can make them move! 

Below is a video portfolio of Andrea Love's work who we really enjoy here at the Imaginarium!

Creating Armatures For Felted Creations

Below is a video on creating armatures for stop motion. It is a very simple process, the only part that is a bit trick(at first) is learning to felt around the wire without hitting it with the felting needle. You can either use pipecleaners, or bare wire, both work great, but bare wire lasts longer.
