From felt, small masterpieces are created by hand, from which the forest beauty becomes a kind and sweet New Year sorceress. Large stitches, a seam "over the edge", bright warm colors of the fabric, contrasting decoration of felt toys are very well combined with cold needles. Such Christmas balls and keksiki can befill it with sintepon or leave it two-dimensional. The fabric itself has a thickness, so multi-layered toys look impressive.
