A few days ago, my husband and I made three felt balls by wet felting with our laundry. I have loads to say about that but I’ll save it for later. However, I ended up with three balls that were pretty dense. I couldn’t sculpt such dense balls, but at least I could needle felt some decorations on them. My first thought was a round bumblebee. And as you can see the results were great. I love the color contrast of the black and yellow and I could really see a baby twiddling the wings between its fingers(you know the way babies love tags!)
All of these ideas are tempting me to make more felt balls. I will let you see what these two temporarily white balls end up looking like in future posts.
