I use felt for a lot of my projects and I am constantly looking at the thrifts for pieces of suitable wool garments or fabrics. Sometimes I am lucky and find a sweater someone mistakenly felted so I add that to my stash.Some of the items I've made with felt are penny rugs, tea cozies, table runners or hotpads, ornaments and even a child's embroidered jacket. The best thing about felting is you don't have to finish the edges to prevent raveling. Its a great way to recycle and create something beautiful.
