I decided against using the bright colours that the Pinocchio Rug had because frankly it wouldn't really match the decor in my apartment. I used mostly shades of brown and white.
Step 1: Stuff you will need
- Wool, etc
- Dish soap and water
- Plastic containers
- Paper towels
- Nylon thread and needle
- Patience and time
Step 2: Making the felt balls
- Squirt some dish soap into your container and fill with warm water, fill the other container with cold water.
- Grab a tuft wool, bunch it together into a ballish shape and dip into the warm soapy water, remove and squeeze out the excess water.
- Place the soggy tuft of wool in the centre of the palm of one hand, place your second hand over top and roll in a circular motion.
- Once the tuft of hair is felted into a ball, dip it in the cold water to rinse (the longer you roll, the smaller and denser it gets).
