Needlefelt mending

Holey socks?

I gave them a Woolfiller treatment and this is how it turned out.⁣


1. I took a bit of Woolfiller in a contrasting colour
2. Lightly felted a patch of wool with the felting needle
3. Cut out a diamond shaped 'band-aid'
4. Pinned it into the sock [place foam block inside the sock]
5-7. I decided to mend the hole at the toe invisible
