Now that the labor of gardening is done for a while, I was thinking of doing some crafty things, possibly with felt. A couple years ago, I bought a book called Softies, which had some very cute patterns for a variety of things from creatures to paperweights. Many of them were made with felt. At the time, I had a stash of 10 x 10 inch squares of felt from my mother’s craft efforts.
I used them up. When I wanted more, I went to craft stores and was not impressed by the quality of the felt squares, which you could see through without even holding them up to the light. The felt I had been working with, admittedly from the 1960’s, was about a 16th of an inch thick–more than a millimeter.
I’m thinking of trying again and want to ask anyone with crafty connections where to find quality felt. I’m throwing this out to the universe. Who crafts with felt and where do you get your stuff?
