    Ok, I just saw a product called Beacons Felt Glue. I know for a fact elmers does not work well on felt. What is in FELT glue vs glue? Anyone ever use it? anyone use anything that WORKS with felt? AND another question on felt..

    I saw a pretty candle mat made out of appliqued wool felt. The company I went to prairiejunction.com sells wool felt. Their info sections states: you can wash it first seperately as wool felt bleeds or you can work with it without washing it to get a cleaner flatter finish. Wouldnt it bleed when you needed to wash it then or is that for things like Christmas Ornaments that never get washed? I am new to the concept of applique felt items and it looks like its an easy way to feel good on your project ie tablemat or wall hanging. The felt itself I wanted to make pin cushions with as I think craft felt is not woven tight enough and might tear if its poked enough times with a pin?? HELP. Just trying to diversify my crafting time which I have way too much of. Thanks!!

    I have always used the Aleene's Tacky glue products with felt.
    I made some wool felt this year from a Moda FQ pack. It came out gorgeous and is very nice to hand stitch. I'd love to try a penny rug, one of these days. I like to switch to hand sewing when my back wears out at the machine.

    If you hand wash with frequent rinsing, you wont have color transfer/ bleeding. Just keep rinsing until rinse water is clear. I might also rollup in a towel and squeeze out excess water.

    I have felted my own wool. I go to thrift stores and try and go just when they're going to put away the winter stuff they mark it low. I wash it in my washer with hot water and dry the heck out of it. I've never bought wool felt except for little multi colored squares. I have a huge drawer full. I've never had the colors run and it's so relaxing to work with.
    Be kinder than necessary,everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    I don't know the difference between regular glue and felt glue, but I have good luck with tacky glue. I usually use only a small amount to hold it in place while I machine or hand stitch it down.

    I felt my own wool also. I ask friends and family to save wool garments and then wash in HOT water and dry in HOT dryer. If they are going to fade they do it then not after a project is completed. Here are a couple I have done in the last month or so.
