Aren't they adorable. They are made from a felted knit ball, wool and some stitching.
I made my felted ornaments a little different from the directions in the magazine. I used a knitted bead pattern and adjusted it to make an egg shape. Each ball is knit using a double strand of wool yarn and then stuffed it with a bit of batting. I think it took about 3 trips though my washer until they were felted to my satisfaction.
