I made one, I had a hard time getting the two colors to stick together where they meet, but I did it eventually, I may go over it with another layer just to make sure it all holds together (can I do that?).

Fulling the felt was the hardest part for me, I got help from my boyfriend who is much stronger than I am.  Another thing I would like to learn is how to keep things straiter, so they don't bleed together as much, any advice is appreciated.  Not the greatest pic (took from my phone).

wow meeg17. I think it looks great. I've been thinking of trying this. What kind of cloth mesh would I need to get?

looks great meeg17! i think the colours blending together is part of the beauty of felted pieces. i think to get a more exact design you'd have to needle felt it rather than wet felt. or maybe wet felt a scarf then needle onto it.
here's a site that explains how to wet felt if you dont have a cloth mesh...

I went to home depot and bought screen for about $4, it came in a roll, and I was able to cut it into 2 pieces.

Thanks for the compliments!  I appreciate it.
