These needle felted dolls are fun and easy to make. All you need is some wool roving, a needle felting pad, and a felting needle! When you finish your adorable felted friend you'll have someone to keep you company in your pocket! I hope you enjoy these simple instructions on how to create your pocket buddies!

Step 1: Shape the body of your pocket buddy

The first thing you need to do to create a pocket buddy is take a piece of neutral/skin colored roving (i'm using brown in this case) and roll it a few times in between your palms until it makes a hotdog shape.

Insert the needle into the felt repeatedly  until it hardens but you can still squish it. Then shape it into the torso figure shown below.
 
So cute! I'm going to have to take out my new needle felting supplies and try this :)

thanks! if you have trouble getting the head in a round enough shape you can dip it in warm soapy water and roll it in between your palms until it gets hard and dry ;) enjoy felting!
