Would you love to create a beautiful needle felted portrait of your dog?

But worried you don't have the skills?

Let me show you how when you enrol in "My Best Ever Dog Portrait!" online course.

You love playing around with needle felting and have been seeing images online of these incredible realistic looking dog portraits. And you keep wishing you could create something just as beautiful as that, but then you immediately find yourself thinking...

"No, that would be impossible.
I can't draw, and it would probably take me years of practice...
and still end up looking like a six year old had made it"

Now don't get me wrong...

Needle felting is a process that takes a little bit of know-how to get right. And if you tackle a project like this without knowing the secrets to make it a whole lot easier, you would probably be:

A) too intimidated to even start
B) make a start but feel like it looks like a big mess and end up tossing it in the bin

If you already needle felt, you know what an enjoyable and relaxing hobby it can be...

And just because you're tackling such a meaningful and important project as recreating your beautiful dog, we don't want to add a whole lot of stress and frustration to that project that takes all the fun and enjoyment out of it.

I've created a unique step by step process that takes all the mystery and anxiety out of making dog portraits that actually look like your dog and not a fluffy mess.

So that you're NEVER stuck wondering how to recreate your dog's darling little face. Yes even if it's a unique, never seen before mix breed like my beautiful Willow.

"My BEST EVER Dog Portrait!" is an online course that will teach you that exact step by step process.

But it’s so much more than a course, it's a supported learning experience where you'll get my help and feedback to help you create the kind of portrait that makes you say "I can't believe I made this"


I know how easy it is to compare yourself to the 'professionals' and think that you'll never be able to create anything as good.

And if you're told one more time to just keep PRACTICING...

You are going to scream.

What are you even meant to practice when you don't even know how to get started?

The good news is once you know the basics you'll be able to create the masterpiece of your dreams. All you need to focus on is a few key needle felting techniques that will help you to bring out the unique characteristics of your dog and bring them to life on the canvas.

"If I can't draw I can't possibly make my dog's portrait "

I've had countless students join my workshops SO FRUSTRATED that they just CAN'T get their dog to look how they want - after years of trying and they blame it on their poor drawing skills. But can I let you in on a secret - I can't draw either.

That's why I created a unique technique to transfer your images from photo to canvas without any free drawing involved

Can't I just figure this out on my own. There's plenty of tutorials on youtube!

This is meant to be your enjoyable hobby and you'd probably rather spend much more of your time enjoying your craft rather than trawling through Youtube video trying to piece together different steps and still getting lost

This course has everything you need from start to finish to create an amazing portrait without you having to trawl the internet for answers.

What if I don't have time to do the course right now?

We have lifetime access so you can do a little bit at a time, but I will warn you that needle felting your portrait can be incredibly addictive. So when you start you probably won't want to stop.

"I "umm-ed and ah-ed" about signing up for the course - unsure that I could learn online. I am so glad that I took the plunge. It's been one of the MOST positive learning experiences ever. I am so proud of my pictures, and have achieved something I never thought I could do."

- Karen Hatton

"I've said it before and I'll say it again: This is the BEST course EVER!!! And I am SO glad I joined!!! "

- Eva-Lena Johanssson

"I would recommend this course to anyone. If someone had showed me at the beginning what I could produce I would not have believed it. Sophie is so encouraging and the course covers everything you could wish to know. "

- Dorothy Nichols

I love dogs and I love needle felting. And for years I really wanted to make a portrait of my dog Willow -
like the ones I'd seen other artists making. But every time I tried they ended up looking like a jumbled mess.

It was pretty embarrassing.

Here was me - a so called professional needle felt artist who couldn't even make a half decent portrait of her dog.

A lot has changed since then. Now ALL I make is dog portraits.

Once I discovered the unique tricks to making a realistic portrait that actually looked like my dog, everything changed.

Now I have a thriving community of followers who are lining up to learn from me and get to know how I make them so easily.

But I will never forget the way it felt when I couldn't figure out HOW to even get started.

And that's why I've put together this course to teach you my secrets so that you can create amazing portraits too without needing years of experience or having an artistic bone in your body.

And it's available for you NOW for a limited time only.

"My BEST EVER Dog Portrait!" leads you through every step of my proven approach to making a dog portrait you are proud of and love.

"Since joining the course, I'm creating portraits I could only have dreamed of, my confidence and capabilities have grown - I literally feel like I could tackle anything! And I have a group of wonderful, like minded people for support.

As a result, I have now set up my portrait business! I'd never got this far this quickly without being part of this course - literally life changing"

- Pauline Sinclair

"This course has been a game changer for me. I struggle with perfectionism... huge road block...before the course I'd be stuck for ages...with the course, I have new tools to navigate more quickly. I look at my portraits differently these days...

I'm starting to believe that the image that I want to create will, in fact, emerge. I am learning all the time. The support group and your gentle teachings bring so much love, care, creativity and kindness to the table, I feel truly blessed here."

- Sharon Cubbage

Do The Work. Get Results. Guaranteed.

I'm confident that if you follow the steps in the course, ask for help when you need it and are willing to implement what you learn. You WILL get the results you dream of.

But this is not for you if you just want to dip your toe in the water and see how you go. This course is for those who are committed to giving it their best shot and making their BEST EVER dog portrait.

I’m really proud of Cal my second (and best) ever dog portrait. A 3D needle felter for a few years I just knew I wanted to try 2D and saw this amazing course just at the right time for me.

It has boosted my confidence no end where I’m trying techniques I never dreamed I’d even know how to do.

Also super relieved that I didn’t need to be able to draw! 

- Shelley Godwin

I only started needle felting 6 months ago. This course is fabulous!

I can’t believe I’m producing work I’m so proud of. I like this one of my friends Golden Retriever, I think he was my 4th or 5th portrait. It was my first and only open mouth, but I think Milo is my favourite portrait up to now.

"I am so proud of my first dog portrait!

I was always seeing posts in other needle felting groups (probably from many of you, lol!) of these magnificent dog portraits.

I thought I could do it myself, and failed miserably. I kept hearing mention of Sophie Wheatley‘s course My Best Ever Dog Portrait, so I decided to give it a go, and signed up!

Once I started watching the tutorials, I got hooked! Sophie, you are an incredible teacher.

I now have a portrait I never dreamed could have been possible."

- Valerie Andrews


Is the course for beginners?

I’ll teach you as if this is your first portrait. You most likely can already needle felt, but this is probably the first dog portrait you might have tried.

HOWEVER many people in the course have never picked up a felting needle and have made INCREDIBLE art! It's possible to be a complete beginner and excel. We all had to start somewhere and I have a great free bonus class for all new needle felters called "Needle Felting 101"

Is the course taught live?
No. It is a
huge resource of over 80+ recorded - step by step video tutorials that will be available for you to watch whenever you like. You get a live Q&A support workshop each month in our Facebook group. And lots of additional help in the community - you'll always have someone to ask.

What if I can't make the live workshops?

If you can't attend the Q&A workshops live you can still ask questions and you'll get the replay. When you enrol you also have access to our existing library of previous workshops. All workshops are recorded so you can watch them at your convenience.

What if I can’t draw?

I’ve got you covered. You don’t need to be able to draw freehand. I’ll show you how to transfer your image to felt by tracing. It’s makes the hard bit actually really simple. Don’t forget I’m here to show you how to needle felt - not to teach you how to draw freehand.

I don’t have a dog - is it still for me?

The course is designed with all the instruction to follow a photo of a dog and make a portrait from that - which means that you don’t actually need to have a dog to benefit from the course - you can make other peoples!

Will I have access to the course whenever I want?

Yes you’ll have access to the course 24/7, lifetime access. The course is a mix of recorded video tutorials which you can watch over and over.

Where will I watch it?

You’ll get a member password to log in and access the course on a dedicated website where the video tutorials are waiting for you. There will also be a Facebook group that you can join where you’ll have access to a live support workshop each month.

Can I download the lessons?

No. The video files are big and it’s much easier for you to watch them online.

Will I have access to the whole course straight away?

Yes. Once you've paid you'll get immediate access and also receive your login details by email. Please make sure you check your emails spam folder and add my email address to your contacts to make sure that my emails reach you safely.


Is there a time limit to complete the course?

No. The course is open ended and there is no time limit to complete the course. You can progress at your own speed and get feedback as and when you need it in the Facebook group.

What currency do I pay in?

The course is charged in Pounds Sterling GBP but when paying with PayPal you can pay in any currency and PayPal will convert the value of the course into YOUR currency for you. It's super simple.

I don't have a laptop or computer can I still do the course?
Yes, but you'll get the best experience being able to watch the tutorials on a large screen like a tablet or computer screen.

I'm not very technical and computer savvy, can I still do the course?
While the course is simple to navigate you need to be able to use the internet and have some basic computer skills. For example it will help if you can use login forms, be able to answer your email, and be able to use Facebook (if you want to join our Facebook group).

Can I get a refund?

Yes. You have 7 days from payment to ask for a refund. Please read the terms and conditions so that you're clear.

I’m not sure if it’s for me. Can I contact you?

Sure thing. If you’re on the fence about whether you think this is the right thing for you then drop me an email at sophie@feltandbeautiful.co.uk or use the form on my contact page.

You love your beautiful dog so much and you'd like nothing more than to be able to capture their beautiful personality in a unique one of a kind needle felt portrait and I'd love to show you how
