Avoiding the temptation to join another swap!!

I made myself a nifty little cell phone cover/cozy out of pre-cut squares of felt and embroidery thread.
(you can view it here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=193453.0)

I love how it came out and would like to make more. Except, I've run into a problem--balls of lint. They've covered the cozy and I don't know how to prevent and/or get rid of them without taking a blade to them. Any suggestions or advice?

Have you tried different types of Felt? I know that different felt will ball up easier. Maybe wool felt might not ball as much. I know that you can buy it at most fabric store. I hope that helps.
