Needle felting - quick fix - Oh no! The ears are too big
Here is my quick fix for a common issue I have
My cat is almost done but I just dont like the ears, I have pretty much reached the limit of how much smaller I can felt them and for me they are just too big.
I could take them off and make new ones, I could cut them off and remove some from the bottom - but let me share with you a quick trick I discovered to shrink them and still retain the shape
(poor thing, he looks a little odd now!)
Occasionally if you have felted VERY firmly you might find you need to add a tiny bit of fluffed up fleece over the top to get the edges to bond but usually with ears I dont find I need this
Of course you can always just buy yourself some ready made custom felt animals from my shop - check out my sale section for some amazing discounts!
