Wool felting, master class

Good day, dear needlewomen!

In the previous article we looked at felting from wool and in more detail dry felting from wool. Now we will introduce you to a master class on dry felting. The author of the master class is Kristina Mayorova.

Master class on felting wool owl.

Good day! Surely all the skilled workers are already busy preparing gifts for the New Year. Most recently, Filimonchik's woolen owl hatched from me, and behind him another one, and more, and more ... It’s hard to stop, owls are made quickly, they are cute, and they can be an independent gift and Christmas tree decoration.

Want yourself owl Filimonchika? Let's play together!

For work we need:

- wool of primary color semi-thin;
- wool brown (combed tape);
- needle number 36 forward stroke;
- needle number 40 reverse (or number 38);
- sewing needle, thread;
- scissors;
- polymer clay of white, black and brown color for eyes, orange for beak;
- wire 0.7 mm;
- glue "Moment-crystal" or "Moment-gel";
- cilia for toys;
- soft simple pencil / dark eyeshadow / dry pastel; red blush / dry pastel brush for application;
- gloss lacquer for polymer clay;
- Knitwear for hats (or can be knitted from yarn).

Before you begin to sculpt, remove the work surface, wipe it with wet wipes and wash your hands thoroughly, otherwise future eyes will gather all the tiniest dust particles and even very imperceptible eyes, and as a result will spoil the whole look of the product.

From white plastic roll two identical balls of the desired size (mine about 1 cm), slightly flatten, place two iris cakes on top of each, and black pupils on top of them, place small white highlights on the pupils.

For the beak, you need to roll a small ball (about 5 millimeters), form a carrot shape from it, flatten the edge of the figure with your fingers on both sides, and slightly tweak the base of the resulting beak. For easier gluing, make the beak flatter.

Then send the parts for firing at the temperature and time indicated on the package of your plastic.

Now let's do the felting.First, form a coarse needle with a dense ball inside the desired size (from 15 to 17 cm in girth).

On the bottom edge of the ball, place the hips.

I prefer the option with a pale belly, so we roll a circle of white or lighter-colored wool for felting in the center.

Our eyes and beak probably should be baked and cooled, try on their owl and fail the platforms for gluing them in.

If everything fits, we glue on the “Moment Crystal” glue, press it well.

Next, you need to align and compact the surface, if necessary, add wool. We drop the upper corners above the eyes, make a more touching look. We make out the eyes with cilia, I used 5-millimeter in the form of a ribbon, but longer ones look great too. Cut the required length, apply glue to the base of the cilia, glue, helping with a needle, planting their base under the eyelid.

The next stage: we cover the eyes with a glossy varnish for polymer clay.

Next, toned around the eyes and in the corners of a dark color, cheeks - red or pink.

After that, take about 20 cm of wire, retreat about 5 cm.We make the first eyelet, then the second (a little more than the first), the third (equal to the first) and the fourth - the smallest (this is the back finger) Twist the legs, straighten, set the necessary bends.

Now gently separating the long strand from the combed tape, lubricating the foot with glue and wrapping it with wool, ensure that the wool is not twisted into a flagellum, but lay flat with a ribbon, then you will get a uniform surface coverage.

When both legs are ready, we make holes for gluing them in, you can use a needle, an awl, sharp scissors, a skewer, etc. Try on the legs, if everything fits, apply glue, glue, pressing well.

Use a reverse needle to thoroughly clean the entire surface (push only the upper layer, do not insert the needle deeply).
Comb, put on a haircut.

To sew a hat, cut a knitted rectangle equal to the length of the owl's “head” and in width - equal to the desired height of the future cap plus 2 cm, I usually get a cut of 17 × 10.

Along the edge of the long side, double-fold 1 cm + 1 cm, fasten it with a temporary stitch or pins, fold it in half with a fold.

And then I offer you two options:

one.Sew around the edge, collect the top thread over the edge, pull it off, make a locking stitch, unscrew the cap, sew a pompomon.

2. Back off a couple of centimeters from the bottom edge, make a rounded cut to the top of the bend, lay the hand or machine seam on the edge, unscrew the cap, sew the pomponch to the vershinka (in this case it will turn out at the owl from the master class).

Or you can knit a hat. Since I don’t really know how to knit, it’s hardly reasonable to explain. The easiest way is to start knitting like socks and gradually loosen the loops, I think those who know how to knit will cope without any explanation from me 🙂 I, when I knit caps, act intuitively. And if you sew it from a knit knit, it will be no worse хуже

We put on the finished cap on the owl, fasten it securely with invisible stitches, if necessary, we make a loop for hanging, and the owlet is ready to decorate your holiday

And if you take yellow as the main color, for example, put red earrings under the beak, and a comb instead of a cap, then an excellent young cock will come out
