How to mesh a red cat with your own hands quickly and easily, using photos and step by step instructions.
We master the technique of dry felting by examplecreating a cat Ryzhik For this master class you need to stock up with such materials: • needles number 36 and 38; • foam rubber; • quick-drying glue; • a white wire with a small cross-section (on the mustache); • Ready-made eyes or beads; • wool of such shades: orange, white, black. Procedure. Work begins with the felting of the body of our product. Take a large enough piece of wool orange. A little punch him in his hands, confusing the fiber. Then take needle number 36 and start to roll the torso of the cat. Stick the needle into the wool until the body isdense. Outwardly, the body will resemble a pear: at the top is thinner, at the bottom is thicker. Below form the plane for the stability of the figure. After completing the felting of the trunk, let's head on. To form the head, take less wool than for the trunk preparation. In the same way, it is necessary to pile the wool in the palms, confusing the fiber. Take the needle and roll the head in the form of a sphere. Stick it in the deepest, so that the wool is better lying around. With a needle, handle carefully, observing the precautionary measures. So we made the head of the cat. Next, you need to connect the trunk and head. Start privalivat on the circumference. All would be nothing, but the area where the head and body tie together is too noticeable. To hide it, tear off a piece of wool orange and patch it over the connection area. We pass to felting the muzzle of the cat, and begin with the formation of the eye sockets. Carefully work with a needle, creating eyecavities of the required size. Also, carefully work out the nose and cavity for the mouth. Take the glue and drip into the eye cavities, wait a little, let it soak. Edge the eyes with glue. A little pressing, glue the eyes to the place. Since our cat is an eye without ears, we will tear off two equal pieces of wool, from which we will form them. In view of the fact that the ears are too small parts, they should be worn on foam rubber. Put the wool on foam rubber and roll each ear in the form of a triangle. After this, alternately, seal them to the head of the cat. To smooth the transition and the docking area,seal it with a small piece of wool. We turn to the decoration of the ears. Take a small piece of white hair and weld it from the inside. From the wool of the same color, form two small balls and patch on top of the eye, forming eyebrows. Of wool of white color, we lay the breast of the cat. To emphasize the cat spout will help two patches of wool: white and red. Mix them and roll the ball. Then weld it into the spout area. Select the mouth of the cat will help black hair withwhose help it is necessary to form a small flagellum. Let's go fussing the cat's legs. We begin with the front. Tear off two pieces of wool of equal length, lay them on foam rubber and knock down. They need to roll along the length of such that the cat sat, leaning on them. To form the hind legs, take four pieces of wool: 2 large sizes and 2 smaller ones. From the first two needles, pile flattened balls on foam rubber. From the shreds of smaller ovals piles. Fold to the bottom of the bull's body balls, to them, seal the oval billets. We will fiddle with the tail. Take a shred of wool more authentic and pile on the foam rubber tail. His tip is decorated with white hair, stitching on the tip of the tail. Now we form the mustache from the wire. Since we make a cat out of wool, it's easypierces. Insert a wire from the left side of the cat's cat's cheeks and drag it a little, cut off the excess. Similarly, we form eyelashes. White coat beautify the front legs of the cat, after padding them. Our cat is now completely ready!
