Nice design. 

Looks as though you are using a hand held felting needle to punch roving or yarn into commercial wool felt?  Or are you doing it with the embellisher, etc.  Either way, a nice consistent laminated design.

Thanks for sharing and Welcome to Craftster and the Felting Boards.

i wet felted a plaque to construct the wallet then decorated it using a felt needle with wool. I should have used store bought felt for the wallet though, if u want a long lasting accessory, for they are much stronger. Smiley

Oh cool.  Your base is so even and flat I thought it might be commercial made.

Did you wet felt it flat and then cut it?  The edges are so smooth.  You are an amazing felt maker. 

I did a few business card cases with roving punched into commercial felt.  Even that is somewhat fragile.  On some used a  layer of ultrasuede on the inside to increase durability. 

Your designs are wonderful.  Thanks for sharing and explaining your process.  The details are always so interesting.

thank you grace.
yes i wet felted a flat plaque and then cuted it to size.
that ultrasuede is a great idea.
commercial felt is always the best option in this cases, i think. even though is much satisfying to create something from scratch.
