I just stopped by to give a woot to Jane & Grace... Cheesy
Great idea for a thread & congrats on being the Felting Mods  :-)!!

An idea could be to just start the threads for these felters, to get their gears turning... Smiley  Depending on what topic floats my boat that the moment, I start "Scrapbook" threads.  I started a Sticky thread for Halloween '05 that was 2005 Completed Costumes Scrapbook (completed projects with pictures go here) https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=60346.0.  It was a fun thread that was mostly geared towards photos & showing off their hard work for the season!

So maybe, "Pictures of your best 2005 Felt Project!".  We tend to make so many projects, we don't even think to post them, until we see a thread topic that gets us off our butt to do so Cheesy

Some others could be...
  • Felted Gift ideas
  • Felted Critters
  • Favorite Felting Supply Sites (or Felting Resources)
  • Felting for the holidays (whatever holiday is coming up)

Anywho, glad to see the Felt boards are growing ~ hopefully you guys can teach me a thing or 20 about it Cheesy

Do more of what makes you happy.

I am glad that now the felting board has moderators!  Cheesy  And I see that now thanks to the wonderful mods (GraceOblivious and JaneDoe) the board is now alive and is getting full of information, tutorials and ideas and is growing fast. Thanks Jane and Grace, you are doing a great job!

I like felting but I stoped doing it for a while and after finding this felting board I got inspired to start felt projects again and now I am doing more things and am more inspired.

The idea of the sticky posts is very good, and there are already some good ideas given. Other ideas that cross my mind are:

- A 'felt-along' thread: The moderators could choose a topic and we could all felt along and come up with our version, either wet or needle felted. Like this we would have one more reason to felt and the felting board would be having more new projects to see  Smiley

- The 'favorite felting tips' idea that was given already by GraceOblivious

- A 'Felt resources thread' with info about books, websites, supplies, etc.

- Maybe a 'felting troubles' thread where we could share our problems related to felting and maybe find a solution? I for example get a bad hand allergy while wet felting and I am curious to know if it is only me or if it is a common thing (I am not allergic to wool and I don't get any reaction with needle felting), so maybe a topic like this with strange things that happen to us or our felting project would be nice, helpful and even fun?

Well, these were my crazy ideas but I am vey glad to see that the mods are doing a great job and that the felt board is growing so fast!  Smiley

ooooh so much has happened here in the short month i was offline!! you gals rock!!! i really like the idea of a felt-along. i think it would be fun to see everyone's unique take on a project and then showcase them afterwards. i'd like to try and take on something big though, like one of GraceOblivious's chair covers or a rug.
sunday dec 3rd i'm going to a felting workshop and one of the project options is felted slippers. seems like a lot of my felting friends on here would like to learn how to do this, so i'm pondering choosing that for my project. i suppose if they come out decent i could try a do a tut Smiley

Wondered why all was quiet on the teamwang front Wink

I've been itching to do a large rug for a while too. UNI ends in a week, and my man is flying to Japan for a month, so I'll hopefully have all the time in the world to work on it.
I was hoping to do a skin-themed rug complete with vein + arteries poking through different parts.
Maybe a rug could be our first felt-along? Maybe not, it isn't inclusive of needle-felters and maybe a more simple craft-along would be better.
Maybe felt soap? It's simple, and there's a tutorial so everyone can get involved

Whether you decide to post a tut or not, definately take a camera with you to your felt class. It makes things so much easier to remember when you leave the class and try your next project at home.

Have fun at your class!
