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!

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!
Thank you Cathy - Judith has some beautiful items on her website so we hope you enjoy putting the new skills into practice.
Thank you Debbie - you know me - I find it hard to leave a piece of felt unstitched!
Thank you Tricia - I love making the felt 'come alive' with stitching.
Hello Andrea, there are many suppliers and here are a few suggestions. These two UK suppliers ship worldwide: World of Wool (www.worldofwool.co.uk) Wingham Wool (www.winghamwoolwork.co.uk) We know of one US supplier: New England Felting Supplies (www.feltingsupply.com) And there is always ebay - especially good if you want lots of small quantities of many different colours (search words = wool felting)
