“This might look boring to some kids at first but really it’s fun!“ enthuses young 9-year old crafter, AJ, who is making wool felted balls from a Harrisville Designs craft kit.
AJ is making a felt ball. First she wraps several layers of colorful wool around a tennis ball.
Pretty, isn’t it?
Then, she starts the felting process – adding soap and warm water to her hands and the felted ball, mushing it back and forth like she’s packing a snowball.
As the wool absorbs the warm water and soap, it transforms into felt in about five minutes!
Beautiful!! The felted balls remind us of globes!
