Start with a simple project to get the idea down.
Decide to make a string of beads or hanging hearts or a simple creature (like a simple spotted owl... see below).
Always keep the needle in the foam when not using, never set the needle down.
Remember to not stab through the wool into the foam, the foam is to protect you, but you don’t need to stab down into it. All the work of the needle is done at the tip.
Keep pulling the piece off the foam as it will stick to it if you don’t move it around.
Start a Simple Project:
roll wool into a tight ball shape
with the wool ball on the foam block, start stabbing with the tip of the needle
roll the wool around on the foam and stab each side equally to create a firm ball
If you are Ready:
roll wool into shape you want to make (like arms, legs, ears, a head) and if you are doing arms/legs/ears make 2 the same at the same time so they will be about the same
attach the arms/legs/head to the ball you already made
faces are difficult to make, check out ideas on line to see what looks fun and easy for you
