More Marmots

I finished my three felted marmots; Marmie, Marmie II, Baby Marmie.

That being said, here is a picture.

To make each of these marmots I started with a big ball of carded wool. I used a felting needle, which is a large needle with small barbs on the sides, to poke the wool together. The barbs on the needle weave the wool fibers together. The more times the wool is poked, the tighter the fibers hold together.

Oh, and I didn’t make the hat, but I think it adds a nice touch.
