All I can say is ... WOW! First it did work and it was EASY! (a little messy - water everywhere :D) But very cool and another home project in the works.

I didn't have all the pretty colors (something I'm going to work on when I pick up some kool aid ;)) But very nice anyway.

You tube :2thumb: Has some very nice clips for anyone who would like to take a look.

Isn't it amazing? We made it with Koolaid-dyed roving and with carded wool from the sheep, the kids are making felted containers (like a coin purse) and then we're dyeing wool yarn to stitch on the surface. I told them it's a lot faster to make a tiny item than a yurt! But they had a lot of fun with it :)

I did try and post a link ... but the pop-up on the forum links, kills me each time ... dial up :gaah:

You can do a search for The Ancient Art of Felt-making or try youtube felt making.

The one lady on youtube was great (IMO) she posted 12 or more short clips (1 -2 minutes) on each stage. So even with dial up ... I could watch them and not take all day. :2thumb: But for anyone with some wool, hot water, soap and bubble wrap ... you are up town and ready to "roll".:D

Plus Knitty: First Fall 2010 and e-how.com have articles on how to do the dyeing and felting. Fun times!
And really, since it's kind of free-form, there are no bad outcomes, it all looks like you meant it to turn out that way :)
Thanks Callie :D I forgot about e-how.com :flower:
