Is it just craft felt, the stuff that's like 29 cents a square?  If so, I believe it's mostly acrylic, and can be washed.  I would definitely try it before sewing, because if you sew it on, wash it, and it shrinks, you'll be left with a bunchy mess.

...so believe when I say Im no better than you, except when I craft so I guess it aint true.

Not yet I was hoping someone might have tried it too!  I will have to measure a square and wash it to see what it does.

Hmmm... it doesn'y really seem as anyone has actually tried this.  I will be using the crappy, buy in a square 19 cent stuff.  I have visions of it just desintegrating for some reason because it doesn't really seem "woven" to me.  I can see it just falling apart. 

Well I'll give it a try and let everone know

Thje mystery will be solved once and for all!!!!

I'm bumping this because it's also my question and doesn't seem to have ever been answered. sewed a robot of felt to a felt rectangle that i in turn want to sew to a sweat shirt but am afraid of what will happen when it gets washed. I ironed interacing to the rectangle....hmmm...should have interfaced the robot as well....maybe I'll start over....
Anyway....WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU WASH CHEAP SYNTHETIC FELT?
