Hanukkah dreidels are usually made from clay, wood, plastic or metal; I decided to see how one would work made from wool.
The needle felted sandwich dreidel is made up of many parts (tomato, lettuce, cheese, olive and 2 pieces of bread) balanced on top of each other and sewn together.
The edges of the bread and tomatoes are covered with a strip with felt and sewn to the needle felted shape. The soft fluffy wool of the bread makes the slices feel and look real!
A low, flat shape shape spins the best (apple slice, sandwich, sufganiyot, egg). I cut a hole in the middle of these shapes and glued a piece of chop stick through the center for spinning.
Now I’m hungry!
