- Approximately 1/2 yard of fabric that is at least 70% wool; 100% wool is best. Look for a fairly tight weave, such as knit jersey. The “feltier” the fabric, the better it will hold its shape. The fabric might lose as much as 1/3 its width through shrinkage, so it’s better to get a little more than you need and trim it down later if necessary.
- Plastic buttons and beads: Two large circles for eyes, a triangle for the nose, and some rectangles for teeth.
- Small rubber bands or heavy thread
- Fabric dye (optional)
- Paintbrush (optional)
- Embroidery thread (optional)
