Needle Felting kit at Michaels
I found some needle felting kits at Michaels that include a mold and stencil. I couldn't resist, and ended up buying the dog and bunny kits. It seems like they might be good for new felters who aren't feeling confident about proportions.
I am posting a photo of the kit and the dog that I created in about three hours.
Wow! That's impressive. He's very sweet. I would agree that the kit would be a good idea for those not confident enough to just have a go without a safety net.
