    I love working with wool felt – especially from Felt on the Fly!  I make wool stuffed animals for my GardenBirdie shop on Etsy.  My favorite at the moment is an ivory spring owl with yellow flower embellishments :)

    I’m in love with wool felt. You know what they say: once you’ve gone wool felt you won’t go back to that crafty stuff!
    Currently I’m making sunflower brooches to help welcome spring!

    My favorite felt project was Yoda finger puppets.  They were for a friend who was getting married and loves Star Wars.  I made one Yoda and one a Yoda bride because hey, he had to come from somewhere… 

      My second favorite project was a Voodoo Doll pincushion with teenagers for an Anti-Valentine’s Day program.  They turned out really cute.

    I love felt! I can’t wait to make this cute Leprechaun!  I made some Felt Valentine Envelopes that I embellished with heart decorative stiches and heart buttons and sent w/conversation hearts…

    Oh my goodness he is so cute! I would love have a book about creations as  have no patterns, plus I am Irish so I would have to make this guy. I do have some wool here thatI wantto make intoa penny rug but I have not got around to cutting it out. I must think I am going to mess it up!

    wool felt is a miracle fabric! if you were to give me a pencil and paper, i’d be intimidated to draw something. but with felt and a nice sharp pair of fabric scissors, and i can dig right in, and usually like what i come up with. thanks for the chance to win.

    I am new to felt and would love to be able to have a copy of this book to get my creative juices flowing. Wool felt feels so much different than the acrylic found in stores. My kids enjoy seeing me crafting!

    Cheryl Moran says:

    I haven’t done anything lately with felt but would love to start.  My friend gave me the nicest Christmas table runner that was made from felt with Christmas ornaments on it.  I flip it over and use it during the rest of the year cause there are colors on the edges that match my family room.

    Felt is forgiving for newbies

    Julie says:

    I used to love making little felt dolls or animals when I was a child. Many (many) years later, I’m remembering how much I enjoyed working with felt and embroidery thread. Now just have to find the time… I love the wool felt that’s available now, such beautiful colors.
