Thank you Stephanie - your kind comment is very much appreciated.
Thank you Bekki - I'm looking forward to more spinning!
Thank you Ruth. I do like scrummy colours!
Thank you so much Meriel for your very kind comment.
Thank you Marilena - if you want to go bigger, use a round-stick bamboo window blind with the metal fittings removed, or you can buy a special felting bamboo mat.
Thank you Deborah - my grandparents liked the two embroidered cards so much they've framed them! I really enjoyed the spinning and I'm going to do more.
Thank you Marilyn. Yes, it really does pay to save leftovers. Actually I find it hard to throw pretty bits away!
Thanks Zed! We do like the bright colours.
Love your needle felted rabbit! (Looking forward to seeing your eye glass case.)
Hello Mais, throwing the pod down will shock the fibres to hasten the fulling but don't start throwing until you have the shape you want. You can smack the pod instead of throwing - put one soapy hand inside the pod and smack your other soapy hand on the outside.
We hope you have fun Tricia!
Thank you Catherine! I'm very happy with the way the project turned out.

We hope you enjoy your felting journey as much as we are enjoying ours Michelle!

Thank you Chris - I like the felted version better than the painted one, and when they are put side by side the felt seems so 'alive'.

Thank you Debbie - I like the 3D-ness of it too.

I hadn't thought of that Ruth - I probably can felt better than Leonardo!

Hello Joceline - yes, it needs more fulling (hardening and shrinking). The shrinkage can be quite dramatic depending on what wool you used and how thick it is. The pod needs to be shrunk until it's firm. You can re-wet and re-work felted pods - take care to work evenly and patiently.
Thank you for your kind feedback Janice. We hope you enjoy the wet felting.
Thank you Debbie - I think it does you good to try something new!
It really does, it's such good fun to play, and you never stop learning do you?! There are so many possibilities with feltmaking and everything else. I just wish I had enough hands and time and energy to make all of the things that run through my head! :)
In retrospect I think that would have been a better way to go Ruth!

Not only money saving, but you can achieve unique colours for your needle felting too!
Good luck Maisie! Bear in mind that nuno felting sometimes has only a little wool and that nepps need a decent amount to felt to. However, if you find some nepps are loose after felting you could always put a discreet stitch or two in place.
