Need I go on?
We began with the book:
|Wool tops & a template copied from the Creative Felt book |
(traced & cut out onto bendable and re-usable foam)
|I wrapped the wool around the template and Little Pipkin helped|
to do 'the most funnest' part.
Hot water, Organic soap and lots of rubbing.
|As the tops began felting together.|
|Soap bubbles squeezed out|
|A tiny slit made with scissors.|
You can see the red foam template inside.
It is so pliable, it comes out easily through the small hole.
|A little more hot water, soap and rubbing around the opening,|
made a smooth peep hole.
With wool stuffing, the felt became a wee bundled baby.
A few simple stitches of thread completed him.
|His (well played with) Winter Family |
gathered around the new arrival.
