Derpy needle felt by ChloeNArt Derpy needle felt by ChloeNArt
I actually made a tiny little muffin for her as well but I lost it when it came time to photograph her >< Her legs still look a little patchy, so I will top them up with another layer of grey, but apart from that I'm pretty happy with :)
Let me know what you guys think of her, any c+c would be appreciated. I'm really glad I made Derpy because she forced me to play around with the face shape so that her eyes could be seen from the front and the side clearly. I now use this shape on all other ponies and it works much better than my previous method. Learning is fun kids!

I'm so very interested in needle felting now, and have been for a while. I work in a call center with lots of downtime where I'm surfing the web*like right now*. This would be an amazing hobby for me. I'm a little lost on where to start, find materials, etc. Any advice? Thanks! BTW I adore this derpy! AMAZING!!! :D

Aw thanks :) That sounds cool, now I want a job where I can needle felt at work too hah.
I get all of my materials off of ebay. I bought a starter kit (there quite a few options I think) which came with a load of the barbed needles in different sizes, a sponge mat to use as a base and a variety of colours of wool.
I don't know much about wool varieties since I pretty much stick with merino wool as it's so fine and soft, but I would recommend buying some form of core wool (cheaper, courser wool that felts quickly) or polyester padding (you know the type you would use to stuff a bear) as the main form of your sculpts. Once you're happy with the size and shape of it, you can then cover it in the coloured merino wool. This just saves time and your more expensive materials.
Sorry if you knew all of this already by the way ^^; There's a good tutorial here: [link] and an excellent blog full of tips here:[link]
Good luck with your travels into the magical land of needle felting and I hope I was helpful :D

She looks really adorable! My only suggestion if you make another one would to be to try to find an actual blue grey to use instead of just straight grey. She really is actually quite blue in the show but so many people just use grey for her. I think the more blue color looks prettier with her yellow hair as well!

I love your work. I agree with ~WhiteRiceCrafts, her mane is fantastic. Using needle felt is such a great idea; it makes the ponies lock so real. Your work inspired me to try it for myself. I only got a felt knot and lost a lot of blood but I won’t give up.
