In the last lesson we introduced how to make needle felted octopus, it's our second animal. Well, let's take a break. This lesson we'll teach you how to make a new shape: heart, you can make it into Christmas oranment or accessories. The main point of this lesson is to learn how to deform the ball into other shapes ( like heart, semisphere, cube, oval etc ). Well, let's start it!!
There are 7 lessons in Unit 1, here they are
|Tools:||Felt fine needle, felting sponge/ foam block, thumb protector|

Step 1. Get a piece of wool and start rolling it tightly at the beginning and loosely at the end, because we'll deform the shape later.
PS: The step 1-2 are the same as Unit 1 Lesson 1.
Step 2: Stab the rolled edge a few times to keep it in place. Then stab the both flat sides a few times to felt, pls stab it gently.
Step 3: Let's stab a middle midline, stab it hard and deeply.
Step 4: Stab the bottom of the main part sideways to form the angle.
Step 5: Squeeze a little when you are stabbing the edge.
Step 6: Squeeze the main part with your fingers to make it flater and more like a heart.
Step 7: Repeat the step 3-5 to make it fine and secure. Done
Make your own heart shape.
