    you take pieces of wool fabric or (more often) things knitted in wool, wash them and throw them in the dryer. they shrink and feel like felt. then, using a technique similar to needlepunch embroidery, you apply loose fibres to embellish them with patterns and color. use the pieces in a variety of craft projects.

    it doesn't look difficult. if you google "felting" you'll find links to instructions and supplies. this one looks promising

    This has always been on my to-do list. I bought a grab bag of quilt stuff the other day, and there was a felted needlecase in it. It was one I had wanted to make, and I love it. :mrgreen:
