There are a few of us.  Numbers are growig daily!!!! LOL  as others discover the joy.

For me, the dry felting is nice because one can leave it at any time, any point and return minutes or days later.  Also, the softer hand appeals to me and works for most of my projects.

Wet felting is great too, just not in my usual mode. 

Would enjoy seeing some of your flat pieces.  Your wingnuts are cute.

yay for pretty cuff bangles!
dry felters unite! Smiley
i prefer needle felting because it's way easier to form shapes. maybe i don't felt the wool enough when i wet felt, but my finished projects seem a bit fragile compared to my dry felted ones. what are you gals using to felt flat pieces onto, batting?

Thanks teamwang!  Have been looking for a daring bunch of dry felters with whom I can smooze and talk fiberly- and by golly - think this is THE PLACE!!

what are you gals using to felt flat pieces onto, batting?

Lots of times just the roving or batt itself - just keep turning it, needle, turn, needle turn; and occasionally hitting the edges, or folding the overhang to the other side and needling wisps down.  My favorite is fulled wool fabric scraps, also pieces of fulled sweater, lace - anything that will take the needle and hold the fiber.  For these cuff bangles  was using up some guts from neckites - that bias lambs wool interfacing makes a great base.

jm2luver21 and kerrypez77 will be more than happy to do one.  Will work on a tutorial once I get the needle along rolling.  These cuffs are so flat and firm because of using the machine attachment to repeatedly  pound the needles into the fabric- but can be done by hand- will be a bit softer and thicker.  Probably easier if punched into a strip of shrunken sweater rather than the necktie interfacing.  We can experiment with it and have some fun.  Glad you like them enough to make some yourself.

They're lovely, you could sell them. i've always wanted to try needle felting but the roving is so expensive and I can't bring myself to just buy one colour! i agree with calling them felted cuffs.

Those are gorgeous! I love the colour and the texture! I'm really pleased you'll do a tutorial. I think I'd call them cuffs- but any of the suggestions wouldn't do them justice. Wink

I hear you! Lots of the shops sell a mixed bag - Mielke's call their's a "Bag of Felters Candy"  -  that's primairly the  source for the roving in these bracelets.  One can make quite a bit with just an ounce or two of roving.  A good way to start is to get 3 oz of two to three colos and then order  more if you like it.    Oh, say, if you get a light color you can add details by lightly painting with fabric paint or use wool yarn for details.  Just a thought.
