Super cute, they look like candy!
I would love an explanation of how they are made, if it wouldn't be too much of a bother.
Thanks for sharing artistrachelmarie
what you need: kool aid, roving, vinegar, water, a couple bowls, a hot water boiler or pot on a stovetop, Ivory dishsoap, and Mister Clean Gloves
This is how I make the beads:
1) Take roving and dye it with kool aid: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=4268.0
2) Heat water with a couple squirts of Ivory
3) Pinch one or two colors of roving together and dip them into the water
4) Roll the roving in your hands like you would a clay ball.... experiement with pressure and speed... you'll feel the felted bead get tight and then you can put it in a bowl to dry ( I use record bowl! haha) I find that when you paid natural white roving with a color they look really whimsical b/c of the contrast
The soap will make lots of bubbles and your bead will look a lot nicer when it dries
Also if you get a "butt" just take a small amount of roving and drape it over the whole bead and roll again. Try and do this before the bead gets too dry.
