2020 was a good year for Little Handfuls.  A lot of gorgeous creations came into being over the course of the year.

My second book also was finally finished and came out at the end of last year in New Zealand.  It will be available now on Amazon for the rest of the world

For 2021 I have even more great plans in mind, as I have been working with students for over a year now I have learnt so much about creating far more than just jointed critters.

If you want to learn how to needle felt and create almost anything you can imagine, please head to my facebook page for more information.  It's super cheap (seriously) and you get so much for your small monthly charge of $8usd.  There's a huge library of classes ready for you to access as soon as you join and you can leave at any time.

2021 is going to be filled with challenges, lows and highs.  I hope you will join me to find a great way to spend your time, keep your spirits up and create something amazing.

It's Been a Hot Minute!!

I so appreciate that you all keep coming back to visit my blog!  Now that we do the bulk of our sharing and communicating on facebook I just never think to come back here but I do appreciate you all sticking with me!

As you can see from the above picture my second book is finally finished!  It will be due for release in the US from 1 Dec, which just happens to be my birthday so that's a nice pressie for me! :)  And it's available in New Zealand from mid October!

We are living in pretty crazy times at the moment, so I'm sorry that this is taking so long to get into your eager little hands!  I do hope that you will enjoy working through these projects, they might even make your time spent at home a little more brighter!  I hope they do.  As always you can contact me on my facebook page at as I'm unsure where messages sent to the blog go! lol  Not to me anyway! :)

Happy felting and love to you all!

New Bears available! Sept 2019

There are always new bears looking for homes over on the facebook page!  Do come over and visit us there!

Tuesday, 8 January 2019

So Google Analytics has just told me that 75 people visited this site in December!  That's crazy and I'm so sorry I've not updated the blog since 2016! lol  Also crazy.

I tend to just use Facebook these days so if you're dropping by today and you see this post, love my work, want to see more, head over to the facebook page!

I've got so much to share with you!  My book did well with sales and has been reprinted a few times now.  I've been asked to write up possible projects for a second book so I'm working on that now! 

I've changed jobs, my kids are grown, we moved house!  So much!

Do come see me on facebook and drop me a message, say Hi and that you found me via this blog!

Much love
Liza and Little Handfuls Bears!

Not long to go!

Hi Everyone

It's been some time since I posted here, but hopefully you have been following the facebook page;  there you can see all the latest news and newest bears!

Hopefully you are already aware of my new book which hits the shelves in April this year!  So not long to go now and you could be following along with me, learning how to make lots of different items and eventually creating your own little felted critters!

The idea of my book is to teach you each technique needed for your bears and friends but in a way that you can make something useful or cute as you go.  So learn a skill, create a unique piece to use or give as a gift!

Once you have learnt how to make a jointed bear you are then shown lots of ways to make unique critters to keep your work interesting and show your flair!

If you haven't joined up on the fb page I hope you will pop over and do it now.  Then you can keep getting updates and see sneak previews of the book and other fun items!

Drop by anytime and if you are already felting I am happy to help with anything you might be stuck on or need ideas for.

Happy felting
