Felty Balls

Can we ever have a post without a play on words? The answer is no, we can't. We have to be as dirty as possible with these crafty posts!

So felty balls have become a favorite pastime for my mom. Now, I wish I could give you a step by step tutorial on how to do these...but we aren't there yet people! If you want a beginning tutorial, check out this blog post or this one! I think the take away message is to be as creative as possible (obviously, this is usually the end goal...). Here are just a few examples of the felt balls made so far!

My mom obviously hates water and the beach. As evidenced here, here, and here.

Remember Hans and Baer? Obvious cute inspiration:

How cute are the backs?

These are all so cute! I love the dogs - very impressive. I tried my first felting project in December...didn't turn out nearly as well :/

Mine was a fox head and was very creepy without a body. I don't think I posted a picture on my blog...too embarrassing ;)
