This last week we had a young woman teach us how to felt with wool. I have seen projects that are felted and even had bought some wool and some felting needles to try it out, but had never got around to it. The wool comes like this in a variety of colors and then you get a felting needle to carry out the felting.
I bought a brush like this but that night we used a large chunk of foam to poke the felting needles in. This is a multiple felting needle but for my project I just used a single needle. The process is accomplished by making the shape that you want by poking the needle into the felt multiples of times until the felt sticks together on itself and will make the shape that you want. The needles are very sharp and have a little barb on the end that catches the wool and causes the wool to felt.
It was a good experience to see how the felting is accomplished.
He is kind of cute though.
Here are some more pictures of felted items that I found on Pinterest.
Too bad I didn't see this one when I was trying to make mine! This one is adorable.
This one looks a little spooky to me, it almost looks real. Great felting! It was a fun skill to learn and I will now have to try some more projects. Have a great week!!
