@handmadebylorivictoria Haha I do that ALL the time. Thank you!! It was definitely a new challenge, a fun one. I tried a dinosaur once, it was too much for newbie me and turned out pretty sad 😂

@woolyowlfeet Least I'm not the only one! I might have to try a santa like that tomorrow :) That's like my penguin it was my second go and turned out so bad! His face looks like he's ran into a wall it's all flat haha. Not been doing it for long only just over a week but I'm hooked!

@handmadebylorivictoria@handmadebylorivictoria I make the shape first in cheaper, non-dyed wool, then when I have the desired shape I cover it in whatever colors I want. I found I waste less wool this way and it's easier to fix my mistakes. For the beard I just barely poked it in, gave it a little shape and let it be. Makes it more 3D and "beard-like". Everything I've ever done is experimental, I'm not an expert at all 😆. I have always wanted to felt, but never started until last year around Christmas. I have a lot of smashed face creations haha. One tip I can give is to try and make your animals bigger, then it's easier to make the face more 3D and gives it personality. I FINALLY figured that out not too long ago and my animals have turned out much better. I buy my undyed wool in 2lbs balls, it's cheap and gives me plenty of room to mess around and practice without feeling guilty about wasting pricey wool. 😊
