{week 8} wet felting

Well here it is at last, week 8’s project: wet felted balls.

Wet felted balls

As an introduction to wet felting, making balls is ideal. You only need wool roving, liquid soap/washing-up-liquid, water and your hands.

I followed the instructions on Mossy and soon had a pleasing pile of round, blue, felted balls.

Now I just need to decide what to do with them, any ideas?

    I can’t tell how big the balls are (oh dear, bad choice of phrasing there!), but could they be beads?
