Have you tried felting yet? It's so easy and a fun effect. We've been making these little mixed color pinwheels for accessories. Boo's favorites are the rainbow ones. With this technique using pipecleaners it's easy to make a long "rope-like" piece of felted wool.
- Clover Natural Wool Roving
- Fabric Glue
- Hot glue gun
