Let's start with making head, First, we need a ball, Roll up the wool into a ball, start stabbing around with a coarse needle while rolling
First, take a little white wool, then use your hands to tear it up a lot of times, then pull it into an even plane, as shown in the picture below
Next, wrap the rough ball you just stabbed with the wool plane, and then use a fine needle to stab lightly so that you can get a smooth surface, here we only need to stab half a sphere since we only need to make sure that the duck's face is flat, and the rest of the head will be covered with a hat, we don't need to refine it now.
Next, start making the duck's hat. In the same way, take some pink wool, tear it off repeatedly, then flatten them into a thin plane, fold them in half, and wrap them around the head.
Next, secure the opening with a coarse needle, start to stab, no need to stab very carefully, because later we will re-wrap more wool to refine the surface.
Hat is almost done.
Next, make the top of the peach hat, take a little pink wool, after tearing it, add it to the head and start stabbing, same method, the coarse needle first, and then add more wool to optimize the shape and surface.
Continue to refine the brim of the hat.
Stab out the eye socket, put it in the hole, or use an awl is OK.
Fasten it along the edge of the mouth
Next, make the body. Again, let's make a ball first. But one size smaller than the head. Similarly, the coarse needle first, then take more wool, and tear up, wrap, and then lightly stabbed with the fine needle to refine
One end does not need to be stabbed too much, because next we will use it to attach with the head, the rougher the better
Attach the body to the head
Attach the wings to the body
Add more wool to cover the gaps at the joints while stabbing lightly to refine the surface
