I think I spent a couple hours making this guy. I'm in the process of making more and different types of owls - trying to figure out the best way to put them together so that the process is faster and easier to explain and do.
It's probably not *impossible*, but it would have certain difficulties. To make it easier, you'd need to "unspin" the wool in question. Is there a particular reason why you want to use this spun wool??
Do you have some carding brushes (or 2 wire dog brushes) around? Trying cutting your spun wool into 1.5" lengths and card with the wire dog brushes - That ought to unspin the wool and make it easier to needle felt.
I've been putting this together as a class for CraftArtEdu. Almost have it done. Hopefully I will have it finished today. I made the first mouse like this many years ago to go with one of my Prittens. It's an easy project and fun to make. I keep meaning to do a variation making bunny ears and tail - I think that would work just as well. =^..^=
