So, in this master class I will tell and show you how to make this happy, fat cat. For felting, we need the actual wool itself for dry felting (here I use the wool of “RTO”) of two colors - I took chestnut and light cream, but you can take other colors characteristic of the color of cats. Also, a little padding polyester will be useful for filling, but not necessarily, you can just take a little more wool. The needles for felting the form itself I use Rough No. 36, and Thin No. 40 for failing parts (I have the Gamma company). As a porous pad, I used a regular kitchen sponge to wash dishes.You will also need beads for the nose and eyes, a transparent all-purpose adhesive, and a small piece of wire to give density to the legs on which the shape will rest.

Let's start with the head. Wrap a small piece of padding polyester in the main color coat.

And start to fumble on a sponge with a rough needle, giving the hands a rounded shape to the future head.

If in the process somewhere there are sintepon spots, add another coat of wool. The needle at this stage should enter vertically, as deeply as possible, so that the internal cavity of the head is well dislodged, while the external part remains loose for further processing.

When the ball becomes more or less elastic, it's time to give it the shape of a future head, “Eye sockets” - the holes in which we will glue in the eyes, they can be made repeatedly “poking” in the same place,symmetrically to each other.

Next is the turn of the eyes themselves, here you have room for creativity: you can make them You can pick up beads from wool, fabric or molded from polymer clay and paint them, I used “shifty eyes” bought in a handicraft shop.

All paired parts are rolled at the same time, taking the same amount of wool to achieve symmetry. Into the inner part of the ears I added a little light wool.

Now, properly pop the ass toys, it must become solid, otherwise our cat will not be able to confidently sit on it.At the next stage, we look through the whole body for the presence of "flaws", if somewhere there are holes, then they need to be carefully filled with wool, the main thing here is not to overdo it. What good is this type of needlework, you always have a chance to redo what you don’t like, without harming the whole work, but you need to know the measure, otherwise you can redo it endlessly carried away.

For the front paws, additional support is needed, I used a not very thick, but rather elastic wire, rounding it from the top so that it does not slide inside the foot. We wrap it with wool and begin to fray, here the needle should go in parallel with the wire.  A happy cat is a well-fed cat These are the legs.
