Feltorial 'Sleeping Aussie Baby' Wombat
Project 7 - Level 2.
There is no template in this Feltorial as it’s important to start visualising more and learning to trust your instinct. There is, however, a map of the detail of the paw pad. There are loads of photos showing each stage of core construction. With new techniques to create limbs and two, very detailed paw pads that are painted with wool to layer the shading. How to create claws and eyelids from wool. The reverse needle is used extensively to create the illusion of hair and supporting attachment of limbs. Also the use of different fibres as core and the use of knots in the core to help create features.
The repetition of many techniques from the previous projects and the addition of more diverse methods, means this Feltorial is jam packed with detail oriented learning.
In 34 pages, with 145 pictures and written instructions, Reena takes you step by step through the process of creating your own Wombat.
