  • Course level: All Levels

About Course

Discover new and exciting felt-making and textile design techniques. Learn how to create a stunning bunch of needle felted sunflowers for your home in this fun and informative course. Rachel will cover a range of skills and ideas through her easy to follow step-by-step instructional videos, giving you the confidence to create your very own product designs. You’ll learn from the ground up, so it doesn’t matter how much experience you have when beginning this course. Rachel also demonstrates how to display your felt flowers as well as how and where to style your design in your home.


Throughout the course, I share lots of information about the supplies I use and why I use them. I also provide a shopping list for each project with direct links to suppliers for all of the materials you’ll need should you not wish to purchase a kit from my store.

To help you get an idea of what you’ll need to create these projects, I use the following in my lessons:

  • Needle punch tool
  • Brush mat
  • 100% 1mm wool felt
  • Assorted colours of wool tops/roving
  • Felting needles (my favourites are size 36 or 38 gauge)

I’ve created a limited edition kit (available in my shop) to accompany this course, containing exactly the same materials I used to create this project (apart from a punch tool and brush mat, also available to purchase through my shop).

Contents and Overview

This course will walk you through all of the steps required to create handmade textile product designs. Rachel will show you how to create one flower design with the idea that you then go away to make more. This project will take roughly 1.5-2hrs to complete.

  • The recommended way of cutting out shapes from fabric
  • What type of paper to use for your templates
  • The best equipment to use when creating your flower designs
  • How to make your designs stand upright and make them look realistic
