11  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / favorite sources for wool felt on: November 16, 2006 06:21:21 AM
Maybe there's already a list of your favorite wool-felt-buying sites...

interested in cheap, of course, but also interested in lovely softer (hand-dyed?) palette and interesting texture.

If so, could someone direct me to the post?

If not, does anyone have suggestions?

So far, I've bought only at Waldorf school stores.  and the blends I've found at Joanns and some other craft stores, which are nice and dense, but not quite what I'm looking for.

Thanks to both of you for the useful replies--so rich with information.

I'm just a dabbler, and started with Sculpey, so now that's what I have & what we use.  I should probably transition over to a different clay, but that will take awhile...

I asked this question w/in a thread, too, but what kind of glue do you like for polymer clay? 

My daughters & I make a lot of little toys that frequently break

I'm also looking for a glue with some body (so it helps keep the skinny figure upright) to use to anchor a small figure in a very small glass jar for a snowglobe necklace.

Any secrets?

Or other glue faves?

I made some mini snowglobe necklaces using tiny jars my daughter's growth hormone comes in.  I add glycerin to slow the glitter fall & some of the preservative I add when I mix her growth hormone to retard the bacterial growth.  They worked great, but I didn't have the right GLUE.

What kind of glue do you use to anchor the polymer sculpture to the base?  I used gluegun glue because I wanted the bulk to help prop up the tiny figures I used, but it didn't always stick.  I want something better to anchor the rubber stoppers to the glass jars, too.

I don't even need detailed instructions or anything (I like to figure things out), just would love a brainstorm or recount of your past gifting.

I'm a new convert to needle felting (my pumpkins and pumpkin girls did turn out extremely adorable!), and want to use my favorite new medium for Christmas gifts for my mother & m-in-law, but am a little unsure what to do.  I was thinking nativity sets, but I've already given them other handcrafted nativities, and should probably branch out. 

What's your favorite needle-felted gift to give?
