I made felt balls for my baby. Of course he/she won’t use it for a while but this little project kept me busy for a few hours.
Felt balls are super easy to make, many tutorials online.
I tried two different techniques :
One over a ball of wool, adding layer of roving and poing it with a felting needle.
The second one over a ball of stirofoam. This technique worked but creates a much harder ball, that’s strangely light. Not my favourite, but the good thing about it it that the layer of wool is thinner so it’s also possible to finish felting with a bit of warm soapy water.
