Help! I've just discovered the world of softies, they're everywhere on Flickr and they're so gorgeous. And I really want to start making some. But I just can't work out where to buy felt to make them. Can you recommend online stores to buy from, or places to buy'm based in Bristol, UK.

Thanks lots,
Cath  Smiley

Woolworth's sell packs of 8 squares of felt for 1. Each square is a different colour. You can also buy felt off the roll in John Lewis, but I have no idea how much it is.

hoobycraft sells felt, its like 30p for a medium rectangle, and they do some nice designs too, as well as plain felt. I have flowery felt, ladybird felt and spotty felt-so cool!

The Works and Wilkinsons sell super cheap felt squares - in John Lewis they're superfine felt is like, 6.00 a metre  Shocked do you have an Abakhan near you? They ROCK for all kinds of fabric and notions

Hobbycraft have a sale on at the mo, and they had lots of squares of felt reduced down to 19p each when I was in there a couple of days ago (that was the hobbycraft in Gloucester).

They have some felt squares in House of Fraser too! More expensive then hobycraft but still good. I also went to my local material shop in Birmingham (we are spoilt here as we have the rag markets!) and got it by the 1/2 metre too!

I buy beautiful hand dyed wool felt online at
http://www.myriadonline.co.uk/dummy-cfelt.html

It is very difficult to find wool felt, most of the shops just sell nasty acrylic stuff. I use only wool or felt old wool blankets to make softies by washing them on your machines hottest cycle.

I have a felt tutorial with suggested stitches and a downloadable pattern at http://ninimakes.typepad.com/nini_makes/2007/08/if-your-childre.html

That tutorial will also give you a link to a stitch dictionary where you can learn any stitch out there. Hope this helps!

I use these people

http://www.craft-felt.co.uk/index.htm

they are pretty cheap for online felt, and they deliver really quickly. It's acrylic felt, but it's pretty good if you want to use a fair amount.

If you're making softies, why not go for fleece or fur fabric - it doesn't push into holes so easily. Fur fabric is good at hiding rubbish ladder stitch (like mine) and fleece doesn't fray and is nice and soft (you can buy cheap fleece throws from Ikea and use them!).

I've bought some felt from here http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Athena-Crafts that I was quite pleased with. You get 3 squares for 1 with 1 postage- but it's the same for postage no matter how much you buy. It's wool mix felt, which was quite thin, but really nice and soft feeling, much nicer than the acrylic stuff.
