Using the surprisingly easy feltmaking technique of felting around a template you can make a felt pouch from lamb's wool with a little water and soap. Felting the pouch takes 30-60 minutes, then you allow it to dry while making felt balls. Finish off with a strap.
Finished size is about 5 inches tall.
Each kit contains materials for one soft wool felt pouch and includes:
- colorful lamb's wool

- plastic mesh template
- tapestry needle*

You will need to provide:
