I was wondering if any of you clever gals (or guys) know of a good way to transfer patterns to felt? I suppose you could trace it on using a light box if it was a light color. any other suggestions?

I don't know about wool felt, but I used some of the cheap felt from a craft store to make a camera case.  I just ironed the patterns on.  I did use the highest setting, but only did it just long enough to transfer the pattern lightly.  Luckily nothing melted or anything Smiley    Then if the pattern isn't already an iron on, maybe use a transfer pen/pencil?

Light box!  I have used a flashlight under a glass pie plate and outlined in extra fine sharpie pen.

I have used inkjet printed images and ironed the acrylic felt in the past, once with good results, once with disastrous results.  If you try it that way, make sure you have paper or a pressing cloth completely covering the felt because it's gross, sad, and potentially dangerous when the felt melts.  (trust me on this one...)

That's funny, I didn't even THINK about ironing it on.  I guess I might've been really lucky.  heh.
