I think that's what I love about felt, the juicy colours to work with.

Re:
Arosebyanyothername's Avatar I must have another go at this - my first efforts were rather crude. I liked the pictures you did perhaps I could try that. I bought a bag of wool and I can't let it go to waste.

Re:
Fairy Nuff's Avatar Lots of the "how to"s I've seen on the web use a rediculous amount of wool, as did I the first time and it's almost impossible to get the soap to come through when you try to use it afterwards.
I put on 6 whispy layers in alternate directions and then add any decoration.

Re:
CalicoKate's Avatar I haven't tried this not knowing quite where to stop when the soap starts to sud up!

Re:
Fairy Nuff's Avatar Just keep squidging till the "Jacket" fits and doesn't move about anymore CK.
Felters tip...I keep a large bowl for depositing the suds into so I can see what I'm doing. They break down into soapy water that can be used to felt something else with after a day or two (I reheat it in the microwave and so far it hasn't tainted the lunch!)
