Here is a video tutorial about Mama Santa's pretty hair, you can use this tutorial to make the beard of Santa Claus and the gnomes as well.

With this technique you can make figures and shapes all in felt. I like to use this technique for detailing because of its molding qualities.

Other patterns that use this technique are Amigururmi Squirrel Girl and Mr. Santa Claus
