I fell in love with Japanese dango when I had it for the first time. It's basically some sticky rice ball mochi thing, but it was so soft and sweet. I wanted to use the colours I dyed last time, so I chose to make Hanami dango which has 3 lovely pastel colours. Instead of round shapes, I made it into cute hearts.
It is very easy to make, it involves basic needle felting tools and a heart cookie cutter. The photos below will demonstrate the processes.
|So here are the materials and a heart shape cookie cutter.|
|Separate the fibers and fill in the cookie cutter to the top.|
|Stab the wool until it gives a surface, and then flip to the back and do the same thing.|
|Take the heart out.|
|This time stab around the edges to give it a curve surface.|
|And here are the 3 finished hearts.|
Have fun crafting!
