They will love the soapy squishiness fun of it all!
It's such a relief to realise that it's not just me that has this problem - I know exactly what you mean by a desk of 'work in progress'!
Thank you Nikki - that's the beauty of stitching on felt - it's easier to get neatness both sides than it is on other fabrics!

Thank you Catherine! Just as you can't make an omelette without breaking eggs, I can't make textiles without getting in a mess!
Thank you Marilyn! I really loved making the wine bottles picture. I don't feel so bad about my mess now that I realise I'm not alone. It happens easily because I get so focused on what I'm doing that stopping to put things away as I finish with them just doesn't occur to me!
Thank you Ruth - I'd love to take the credit but it's all Annie's work. She forgot to type her name at the top of the blog post (amended now). She says her 6 hours doesn't seem so bad now she knows you spent 2 days!
Thank you Teri - nice to know that I'm not alone with the mess thingy!
Hello Eva, once felt is fulled it's not possible to add more fibres by wet-felting. However, you can easily add more wool decoration with needle-felting. You could also embellish with hand or machine stitching and beading. Have fun with embellishments!
Hi Kay. I think the children would have fun with it - although they may get some lumpy beads if they don't handle them gently enough at the start of the process. But I don't suppose that matters as long as they enjoy it. We tend to leave them to dry overnight in a warm place. Have you also seen our other tutorial, How To Make Felt With Children: http://rosiepink.typepad.co.uk/rosiepink/how-to-make-felt-with-chi.html Flat felt might be easier to start with. Let us know how you get on :)
Thanks Catherine! Fish are proving to be quite a fun subject matter for us at the moment! :)

Thank you Judith - funny thing when I was writing the blog post that song was running through my head non-stop, but I didn't mention it because I didn't think anyone would know what I was blethering on about!

Thank you Sharon. Yes, that line from HHG would fit the bowl very well!

Thank you Ruth - necessity is the mother of invention! My husband can prove to be very useful.

Hi Mary, thank you! If we can ever help it is always a pleasure to do so :) We are all learning all of the time. The possibilities of feltmaking and textiles and stitching are endless, and it is fun to share the journey. Take care, and be creative when you can, Annie & Lyn
Yes Tricia, it's a sort of 'trimming' that I bought yonks ago and I wish I could remember where from because I'm running short! It'sjust caught around the edge under machining to make a border.
Thank you Catherine - I kinda like 'messy' really.
Thank you Deborah - I love experimenting with odds 'n' ends to see what I can embellish the felt with!
Thank you for saying the piece inspired you Zed - lovely compliment!
Thank you Ruth. I thought the plastic box would protect my fibres, but the breeze won :( I just know I'm going to put those flowers under the needle. I can't resist!
Thank you Marilyn!
Thank you Jeanette - it is hard to know when to stop adding bits sometimes, so it's good to get feedback like yours!
Thank you Stephanie - your comment is a lovely boost to morale!
