Hi there, I am setting up a craft workshop in which I will offer many activities for kids, some of them really young. I want to include wet felting of soaps and possibly of pictures, using ziplock bags. My question is, if I supply kids with roving with which to make their picture base or with which to wrap their soaps, rather than asking them to build up a decorative image on top of this (say a heart) from roving, could I also supply them with die cut shapes cut from 100% wool felt? If I did, would these die cut images felt to the roving in the ziplock bag or would they need to be needle felted in? If at all possible I would like to give really young kids the satisfaction of having created something incredible in a ziplock in the 2-hour period in which they will be with me. I like roving images but would prefer to offer more complex images that could be done quickly and easily. If anyone has a better idea of how I might get the same results, I would also be really interested. Thanks! x

I'm not sure if pre-felted sheets would really wet felt down anymore the way you are suggesting. Felt sheets are already felted down a lot. Of course it never hurts to do a test round. 100% wool felt sheets can get a little pricey, too, depending on your budget. What age are the kids? Soap felting might be the way to go if you only have a couple hours.
