I worked on a fun little project this week- a needle felted moose for Kesten to play with. Right now, he likes to call anything with hooves a moose. He gets pretty excited whenever he sees a picture of one. So, to keep me busy during down times, I worked on a moose for him.
To start out, I made a frame for his body out of pipe cleaners. Then I started to wrap raw wool around it and anchor it in place with a few jabs of the needle-felting needles. Once I got a basic shape formed, I went to work felting it in place with the needles and working it into more detailed shapes. Below is a picture of the moose with some loosely wrapped wool with some more felted areas, like his front legs.
