Cracks are a really common problem. Having water that's REALLY hot will help. It's really a case of practise. Read some of the tutorials on here, they have lots of tips :)

The only way to fix already felted cracks is with a felting needle. Cracks that big would take a long time to fix.

If the cracks are too big to deal with by needle felting, try going over them using this method ...... viewtopic.php?f=65&t=153
