Create your own needle felted Piping Plover with this DIY kit from The Lunenburg Makery.

Piping Plovers come to select beaches in Nova Scotia to breed starting in mid-April and lay their eggs in shallow "nests" among the small stones. They blend in perfectly with their surroundings to protect them from predators, unfortunately it makes them extremely vulnerable to dogs and human feet who accidentally crush them. Taking our beach walks closer to the waterline in nesting areas can lessen the impact.

This DIY kit contains everything you need to learn how to make a Piping Plover of your own. You may choose to work on a foam block or sponge to protect your fingers. 

• Step-by-step illustrated instructions
• Ruler and foot pattern
• 100% natural sheep's wool roving
• Three felting needles
• Pre-cut wire
• Pipe cleaner
• Beads
• Needle and thread

Whether you're an absolute (but confident) beginner or someone who has a few felting projects under their belt this Plover will be a delight to make!

Finished Size: approx. 10cm x 12cm (4" x 5")


The Lunenburg Makery is currently an online platform for learning, making, and gathering around craft. In 2012, we opened a multi-purpose craft space in the historic Burns Block building including sewing facilities, a library and reading area, and a retail space and studios. We offered workshops and courses as well as drop-in projects, sew-by-the-hour, evening craft circles, and studio space.

Over the years, we've drawn on a rich community of Makers for our instructor base and we have worked with a small group of creative and passionate staff to keep things going on a day-to-day basis. Needle felting kits were added to our established felt sewing kit line-up in 2015 and the collection has grown steadily ever since! Based on the overwhelming success of the wholesale and online end of our business the decision was made in October 2019 to close the physical Lincoln Street shop in order to focus on export.
