Ever wonder what to do with all those wool yarn ends?

Make a pin cushion or felt ball!

First gather all those wool ends that you know will felt. I keep mine in a mason jar to recycle in spinning or as life lines.

When you have a nice big bunch, put the bunch in the bottom of a nylon, push it down and knot the nylon to form a ball. If you have enough wool to make several, start another ball after the knot and keep adding wool and knotting until you are done.

Throw the wool the washer and dryer and felt until it’s to your liking. Pop the ball out, keep it as a ball or saw it in half.
