Step 1: Materials
You will need:
Wool fleece. You won't need much for this project, so if you can find a sampler pack with multiple colors, that's great. Otherwise, you'll just have plenty of material to make other felting projects...
One or two felting needles. These are SHARP. And brittle. (You may want a back-up needle.) Proceed with caution. Have band-aids just in case. We had no injuries this time, but I've jabbed myself in the past when I've gotten distracted.
A kitchen sponge with small holes in it, or a piece of foam scrounged from packing material.
Spare earbuds. We borrowed my husband's extra set, since he was at work...
Step 2: Flower Center
Roll it between your hands to make a snake shape.
Coil the snake into a snail shape.
Put the snail down on the piece of foam or sponge, and jab it gently but repeatedly with the felting needle until all the parts are stuck together and you like the shape, turning it as you go along. If you don't like the shape, keep turning and poking until you do.
