Hi!

I've recently started needle felting, and I wanted to make some cute little cell phone charms and such. But before I sold them, I want to make sure that they won't fall apart. I felt them very tightly and they are pretty firm to the touch, but is there any way to make sure that they don't fall apart? is there any way I can make the surface of the characters smoother? any other advice? thanks!

Here is what I've recently finished!

If you felt them until you they keep their shape dispute light squeezing then it should be sturdy. Your needle felts are gorgeous btw

Love them!!!  To make my felt "smoother" I have a small set of pet clippers (battery operated - about 3" long) and I simply shave off the fuzzies.
