Wool Felt

I just discovered lovely soft thick wool felt and I’m in love! I haven’t used felt much in the past and when I have needed it I’ve just picked up the cut squares of acrylic felt at the fabric store. I’ll never be able to go back. Here’s my first attempt at a cutie out of wool felt.

if you want to see something really cute out of felt check out this gal that I found on craftster. I love the pony! and she’s making the neatest doll too.

In Oscar news, the trip to the pediatrician went well. Oscar’s length and head circumference have caught up with his weight and now he’s 50th percentile across the board. He had 2 shots (including the flu shot) and didn’t even get a fever this time. phew! Our task for the next 2 months is to get him to eat, rather than drink, most of his calories.

here are some pretty leaves from our walk yesterday…

    Wow!! This is tooooo cute!!! I love it! I’ve been wanting to knit up some of my own toys lately! Now I really wanna get started!!!! hehe ^_^
    So do you buy this wool felt in sheets, the same way you would buy regular felt??? I may have to try this as well!!!! Although I’ve never seen it around any of the craft store in my town.

    I love working with felt and I agree, once you’ve worked with wool felt you just can’t go back to that yucky stuff at the craft stores. Lately I made some sewing “cards” for my daughter by cutting a shape out of felt then using a regular hole punch to punch holes around the outside. To be honest, I think it was more fun for me. Sigh. Oh, and you should absolutely check out Felt Wee Folk – gorgeous stuff out of felt (not just wee folk). Thanks for your blog and the opportunity to post long rambling comments!

    Hi Hilary,
    I live in the Chicago area and have been interested in find a good local source for wool felt. I want to create a headboard of woven wool felt, so I’m hoping to find 60″ or 72″ widths of nice soft wool felt in a large variety of colors. You mention a quilt shop in one of the comments above, can you give me more details please?
    Thanks,
    Sandy

    Hi. I’ve just stumbled across your site and, having checked out your gorgeous vintage fabrics, figured you might have the answer to a question I have: is it possible to have ordinary printed fabric turned into oilcloth? I want to use some beautiful fabric as a kitchen tablecloth but would need to have it coated. Let me know if you know! Thanks very much. Amber.
