Creating Shapes with a Cookie Cutter
When you first start to needle felt making shapes can be a little bit intimidating. While you get used to the materials (and even after you’re a pro) it can be much easier to use cookie cutters as templates for more elaborate shapes. They are also a great way to make sure your fingers stay out of danger.
1. Place the cookie cutter onto the sponge. Prepare the wool and fill the inside of the shape. Use your needle to pierce the wool inside the cutter. Keep turning the cutter over so there is even coverage.
Once the shape is firm remove from the cutter and clean up the edges. Now you have a perfect shape with minimum effort!
