Divide the raw wool into 8 pieces for the body.
Lay two of the pieces made in step 1 (2 layers) on an 8 in x 9.8 in (20 cm x 25 cm) rectangle-shaped pattern, first in vertical then horizontal directions alternately, and pour liquid detergent until well absorbed. Then, take the raw wool for the design (arrange in a pan as per the diagram) and pour liquid detergent until well absorbed.
Take out the pattern and lay it over the sheet made in step 2: position the design and connect to the sides made in step 2, then lay the remaining body pieces, keeping horizontally and vertically and press, keeping the design as the outer layer.
Make 4 layers on each side in order to form a bag.
Cut out the bag's mouth and pull out the pattern. Turn the bag inside out, then felt it until it attains the sizes indicated in the diagram. Felt the cut part and the edges very well.
