Sorry if this is in the wrong place...I haven't quite mastered the ins and outs of the site...Can anyone give me tips on felting with a sushi mat? I've needle felted a bunch, just tried the sushi mat...but nothing seems to happen. Do you have to roll it for eternity? Should I be using dish soap? Any input would be most appreciated~

Okay, last summer I attempted felting using this method as I was (still am) interested in branching out in my crafting. Needless to say, I haven't done much with it since as it didn't turn out so great for me. But, I did find a helpful site that you may want to check out:

Good luck and let us know how it goes!

I did this a few months ago, except on a large scale:

Are you rubbing it to matt it before you start rolling? I used dish soap and rubbed it, turned it and rubbed it on all of the edges, then rolled it on each of the edges.

Your felt came out really good! I can relate to the huge amount of time it took, and my back was killing me when I got done from bending over the bathtub! I tried to layer colors and it just looked like ca-ca. But yours is pretty! What did you end up making with it (I didn't finish reading end of post......)

Thanks! I made mine on a table out on a veranda with a big bucket of water! I've not done anything yet, sadly. I forgot.

Jadey that felt is beautiful! Clearly I am expecting results too quickly. I must know, did you make those Count slippers? Super cool..Also thanks for that link Wreathgirl, it was helpful...At this point I think I'm going to stick with the needle. I got this knobby thing that will hold 6 at a time and you  can actually felt pretty quickly. It surely puffier than the
wet felt...but it will work for my plan. I'll be posting some pics soon~ Thanks again
