Here are our cute little felt rock bundles.  My I-guy picked ALL of the colors himself. He wanted almost all of them to be “swirly” looking.

the wet felting is the funnest part. At first the wool feels really loose and squishy.

Just when you think it will never get tight around the rock, it magically does.

We had so much fun that we made 13 rocks. We had only planed to make 6 at first, but quickly realized that we needed to make a rainbow of rocks.

My I-guy had to give them all names so I could make this “chart”. We do this with our gemstones whenever we go to the rock shop so that we won’t forget their names.
