February felting meet up

This week we had our monthly meet up and we made the cutest little finger puppets you ever did see.

We started by either using very short fibres or as you can see in the picture below cutting up wool!

The first step is to make the animal's tail. We rolled the fibres dry at first.

We then made two small piles for our little mouse's (yes another mouse) ears. For these we used the short, cut fibres.

The ear's taking shape below

Lay out the fibres for your 'body'

 Lay down your pre cut resist

 At this stage you add your ears and tail

 Then cover with your top layer and wet felt

 For an added extra you can add eyes, either by needle felting (as seen below) or stitch on beads.

And there you have it, cute finger puppets!

 How cute do they all looked all lined up in a row.

Well done ladies. Another great session. Looking forward to our next meeting which will be this Tuesday the 26th March.
