Fun with Felt

These are some of the test pieces my students made this week. This project is working very well even one of the boys who hates art made a piece.
Here are a few links:

Teaching Handwork

There are many more felting blogs, forums and vidieos on the web/


  1. Very cool!! I got a wool felting "kit" for Christmas this year and can't wait to try something like this with my own girls!!

    : )
    pink and green mama,

    PS the "Junk" outfit at the top is awesome!!

  2. Are these wool? I have stayed away from felting because of a wool allergy, and I wonder, if you use wool, what you do with kids who may be allergic?

  3. Yes its all wool and can make your hands very very itchy, I have ordered some throw away gloves, because it was driving me mad and Im sure some of the students wont like the feel of it either. I knever came accross a student who was allergic to the wool, the scool uniform consists of a woolen jumper so I guess I would be aware of that allergic reaction before hand.

  4. I just felted for the first time too. Looks like fun!

  5. I love the felt project.
    I will have to give it a try.

    Thanks for sharing
