In the last lesson we introduced how to make needle felted heart, it's our first shape which deform from the ball. This lesson is our last lesson in unit 1. we'll teach you how to make another shape: egg (oval), you can make some as Easter oranments or animal's heads or badies. The main point of this lesson is to learn how to deform the ball into other shapes ( like heart, semisphere, cube, oval etc ) too, just like Unit 1 Lesson 6. 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|
|Materials:||Yellow wool roving or any color you can get|
|Time:||10m - 15m|

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.
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: Keep repeating this process: rolling & poking. It takes 2-3 minutes. Pls don't stab hard, we need to deform it later. After this step, we'll get a loose ball.
Step 4: Squeeze the middle of the ball and just stab the center.
Squeeze a few times or roll it in your hands after stabing for a while.
Step 5: Let's trim the top of the egg. Rolling it and just stab the top.
Make your own Easter egg.
