I really admire people who have the patience to make felt. It can be so luxurious and an end in itself. I do not do this. I purchase a commercially made felt (wool and rayon blend) and wash and dry it to "full" it. That is when my creativity kicks in- the assemblage of felt shapes into a garment. It is almost like clay slab-building...cut, attatch, trim into a wearable sculpture.
