fabulous! count me in!

I've always wanted to try either wet or needle felting (though after reading about the needles I am pretty sure I wouldn't succeed without horribly maiming myself) so this is excellent!

I've decided within the last hour that I need to try a vessel!

I can't promise results (I don't know how strict things are in these -alongs...) but I want to try! really badly!

exclamation marks!

Great, do check the feltalong discussion topic.  There is interest in revisiting this feltalong with a new crew. 
awesome! thanks for the link!

I like the shelves a lot, but can we talk about that room for a second?!

what an amazing shade of pink!

glam! I love it!

the possibilities for that are pretty endless, too.
I'm thinking, (obviously) madonna, maybe a little michael jackson?

...is anyone proficient in photoshop?!

you will definitely want to test this with a small piece first, but I have done this with vinyl without noticeable damage...

get an iron on low (LOW!) heat (the vinyl was super thin, so you may need a little bit more heat, but I'd be scared of melting anything!) and cover the area to be ironed with a medium-density piece of cotton. press, but don't drag the iron for a few seconds, and make sure to check every few seconds to make sure everything is a-ok under there!

make sure that you do this on interior side, so that if there is any melting you're not left with a cotton-woven-melted imprint!

if that doesn't work, you may want to try hot water - if you have a deck or a large, flat-ish area in your backyard this will be easier). heat up some water and have at 'er. I'm not sure how the fabric part of the naugahyde backing is attached, so you may want to test that out beforehand, too... if you have a clothesline, that might work really well also. a really strong clothesline.

another idea that may possibly work: use aforementioned deck, and spread the 'hyde out on a sunny day.

beyond those, I have no idea... a bunch of tiny naugahyde coasters?

I have never tried felting (either wet or needle) before, but I need to learn now, as I need to make this.

there is no 'want'. NEED.

these are gorgeous!

I like your choice of felt, too. the cherry blossom motif is usually done in silks, etc - fabrics that have sort of a cool nature to them (does that make sense to any one but me?). felt sort of defies that, cozies it up a little - an interesting choice!

ah! I am jealous!

I started building one of these a few months ago (the less tech version, however - mine is a cardboard frame, tubes of varying widths of BFK*, and muslin). the different circumferences of the tubes gives it a bit more of an organic feel, but I have to say I think I like your approach with the squares a bit more - a lot more pixel-esque!

I am now inspired to finish it!

(*the BFK is from a bunch of test prints I did in my intro printmaking class. I would never use such expensive stock for a project like this otherwise!)

edit: I also hit 'this rocks!'
