I have always enjoyed felting with raw wool. There is something very therapeutic about stabbing material with the felting needles. It’s very stress releasing. Life gets stressful… Ok but..back to being not creepy.
I cut a foam ball in half and wrapped the raw wool around it. That’s a trick that saves the amount of wool needed. It also keeps the shape and integrity of the piece. I did not put foam inside of Isabelle’s hair puffs. Those were small enough to use raw wool.
I used two different colors but they were VERY similar shades of yellow. I was using what I had so… I am trying to reduce the amount of material spending. I prefer to use as much of what I have before I buy more materials. Materials add up and this is my creative passion. One of many… I am a Gemini.. I can’t help it.
I cut out the eyes, nose, eyebrows, and mouth out of flat felt sheets. I then worked the raw wool in my hand to create the mouth, ears, bangs, hair do, and hair band. You can see the difference in what the wool looks like before using the felting needles.
I was IN LOVE with how this turned out. I am super excited to make more wool villagers. So far this has been my favorite material to work with.
