You will need
- - foam;
- - needle felting;
- - wool.
Draw a toy on paper. Create her image in the smallest detail, determine the dimensions of all component parts of the crafts, ways of their fastening. During the work not to be distracted by the measurement of the part line, prepare templates. On a thick cardboard draw the outline of the part required size, cut a hole through this circuit. During the felting, it will be possible to put the workpiece in the hole and fit the desired size.
Set up your work space and tools. Since during operation the wool is pierced through and through, I want the table to protect from scratches and needles from damage. Enough to get the brush where you handle the details. If you don't want to spend money on special brush, replace it with a dense and fairly thick foam. Buy some needles felting. They vary in size. The bigger the toy you make, the greater must be the needle. For the study of small parts use very thin needles.
The wool is significantly reduced in size after the felting. So take a piece, about 2 times the size of the future details toys. Divide the hair into individual fibers, rip them a few times, the mass turned out more fluffy. This material will be better evenly evaluates. Roll of fluffy mass of the approximate shape of the part. Put it on the brush or foam and begin to evaluate, piercing across the surface with a needle. The needle should enter and leave the wool at the same angle. To ensure that the product is smooth, try as evenly as possible to pave a piece of wool by needle injections.
For making great toys you can use polyester batting. It is necessary to break the fibers, roll, wrap the top coat of the desired color and then evaluate. So you will save on the material. The longer you process the wool to the needle, the more dense, smooth and small will become a part.
To add a colored stain or change the form of the bed, put on her extra layer of fur and finish with a needle of small diameter. So you can "draw" on the toy expressive face.
The connection details with the basis not handle, it must remain soft. During Assembly you will be able pivalate detail so that this section is "merged" with the form framework. If you failed to align the connection, try to disguise it. Lay on this plot, thin layers of wool and evaluate fine needle. Build up layers until then, until the surface is sufficiently smooth.
