I'm needle felting a face today and I broke the only 2 needles I had!  UGH

New shipment supposed to arrive Wednesday!

Frustrating!

I know this feeling too well! bear_grin I had 20 needles, now I only have 2 left and I don't dare to use them anymore until I can order new ones. I guess I'll need another 20 to complete my project. bear_rolleyes

What kind of face do you make, is it a bear or something else?

Its a bear face.  I'm trying to make one with a more realistic look! 

Its a completely new design that i've been working on but when i look at it it still looks so similar to all my other designs!! UGH. have to see when i'm completely finished what the final bear looks like!

I also have this problem, with needle felting I tend to make the same mistakes as on my sewn designs. I guess it's hard to go against your style.  bear_happy

I'm waiting on 50 needles arriving any day. Sooner rather than later would be good!  Checking the post office every night on my way home from work!!!

In order to prevent your felting needles from breaking my advice is putting in the needle under a straight angle and especially try to avoid moving / twisting the needle whilst it is still in your bear's head (or other body part). The metal of felting needles is 'hardened' which - and I know this may sound silly - causes the metal to break when moving/twisting the needle as described before. I hope this helps; it most certainly will help reducing costs and preventing frustration and bad mood bear_happy
