Often when we are learning a new craft, theres a lot to take in. With needle felting, for example, you are learning how to judge what fibre and needles you have. How to know what the right amount of fibre would be for each part. You'll be learning how to shape the limbs and to thread joint them all together! So yet another thing you need to learn is making a nice, simple nose.
Often it's these things that we neglect to learn more about. We just muddle through when we get to this part and hope for the best. But the nose is just as important as the eyes and ears, the balance of the face really effects how your little character will turn out, and whether he is stern, cute, lovable, sad etc.
For this tutorial I'm going to take you through making a basic nose, this is how I make most of my noses, I rarely get more technical unless I've made something larger or more deserving of something extra special. Why get super complicated if you don't have to right?
Here you can see me taking the needle into what would be the top of the nose, above where the thread is coming out. We will be doing a running kind of stitch, making loops in and out along the nose.
