James has developed a strong appetite for all things creative. We spent nearly £10 on craft materials last weekend and he spent the subsequent week cutting and sticking. It could turn into an expensive hobby at this rate. He has made all manner of pictures from cut out pieces of cardboard so I decided it was time that we moved on to a new craft. Having bought an armful of rainbow coloured merino wool tops we decided to try our hand at felt making. James was quick to follow instructions and was soon perfectly laying down the wool ready for the fun bit of squashing it and turning it into felt. Our first attempt was a nice thick piece of felt that was still a tiny bit too fluffy in the middle. The second time we produced a much more delicate piece of felt which was a little too thin. In ‘three bears’ style, I’m sure the next attempt will be just right!!
