Making Felt

When my Grand-daughter Ebony who is almost 7 y.o comes to stay we try to do some craft of some sort and this week she wanted to do some felting.This usually was some wool fibres about 18cm long and it was wet and then had some dish washing liquid added and she proceeded to roll it between her hands to create a long thin sausage which she would wrap around her wrist to make a bracelet or a play toy for her Kitten.
I decided to show her the correct way as best I could as I am not an expert at this just a dabbler.
You can see by the concentration that she was taking it all seriously and wanted to do another one when we finished
