I've had some roving that DH's Nan gave me. She used to spin, but has given it up (more because of time constraints than infirmity - this is the 80 year old who still skis!), so I thought this would be a great opportunity to try our hands at wet felting. The first part of the process was to dye the roving (more on this next post).
We followed the process as outlined by Rosy Posy, although our chicks aren't quite as smooth as hers ended up.
Once they were completely dry (thanks to the hot water cupboard), I embroidered on a little orange beak, and used a permanent marker to make the little eyes (I don't have any black thread).
