Kent couple makes kids’ craft kits for felting furry friends

Your kids can make their own felted friends and learn a fun, simple new craft with Woolpets.

Kent couple Laurie and Kevin Sharp use high-quality wool and step-by-step photo instructions in more than 42 patterns of small felt toys for ages 10 and up.

 Needle felting is portable, and requires few supplies: wool, a needle and a foam pad. Choose from an owl, penguin, ladybug, bumblebee and more. Crafters can create these cute critters for the Thanksgiving dinner table or to give as holiday gifts. Make a mistake? Pull the colors apart and start over.

 The craft kits range in price from $14 to $20 and are available online at
