Rainbow Pincushion

Here is a selection of wool from bright to darker around the edges - to create a rainbow ball pincushion.

everybody in class really picked beautiful and eye catching colors for theirs. 

Once the ball is wet felted you want to cut it open when it's still wet.

Beautiful & useful

Lovely colors. What kind of knife do you use to cut this? I have had a hard time cutting the wool balls before.

You should use a serrated knife and do it while its wet.
Love your new photo avitar.
