Yes Francesca, it is pre-felt. Pre-felt is felt that has only been 'worked' until it just holds together so that it can be cut into shapes.
Thank you Chris!

Thank you Marilyn - I'm taking everyone's advice and thinking seriously about the card avenue.

Thank you Ruth. Selling images is an idea worth looking into!

Thank you Jeanette - I was very pleased that the wool gripped all the layers of net.

Thank you Nikki - seahorses are amazing creatures aren't they? I don't think Sydney will be my last textile one!

Am I that transparent? I couldn't put the net-felt away and this evening I got a half-baked idea for it...however...if you never see it again, then you'll know that the half-baked idea was just that!

Funny thing is I haven't put it in my samples box yet. It's still on the table because the net-felt is so pretty to look at!

I reckon I caught the sampling bug from Zed! Maybe the texture achieved using chopped up fulled felt will feature in something soon - I love it!

Thanks Zed. The net turned out much better than I thought it would as did the chunks of fulled felt. I'm gradually improving my photos but I've got a long way to go yet!

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! :)
