aah, fuzzy goodness.
here’s the lowdown on the how-to:
find yourself some wool roving in any glorious colour.
tear off a piece and stretch the fibres apart. * make it a good size chunk. these babies turn out a lot smaller than you expect.
now roll it up into a ball, and start stabbing it with a felting needle. stab all the way through, or else you’ll end up with a hollow ball in the end (unless that’s what you want).
keep stabbing away until you have a dense ball that doesn’t give too much when you squeeze it. and try to keep your other fingers out of the way or else it’s jab-city.
this is the way we wash the felt, wash the felt, wash the felt…
*felting occurs because of 1) heat 2) friction 3) soap, and a combination of all three makes it happen even faster.
lined up like sitting ducks…
all dry and fuzzy:
find an appropriate container.
