I knitted a piece of wool and sewed up the seam and gathered the top and bottom around a styrofoam ball. I then put it in washing machine and felted it for 20 minutes. Then I took wool roving and needle punched the chicadee pattern like the one on the felted slippers that I made. I got the gauge for the ball from the felted slippers . I knitted the cord seperately and felted in my table top felter and cut to length and sewed it on. I added a velvet bow the color of the berries. It is for sale in my Etsy shop.
