I've never felted myself, but I remember visiting a school several years ago where a parent had taught the kids how to do it.

The part that has stuck with me is that his version of felting involved driving over it with his car in the parking lot several times! I don't think he let the kids do the driving . . .

What a novel idea using a car.

I reckon felting is one of those activities, like painting that suits all ages. It'a also possible to make so many different objects too.

I'm now hooked on wool outdoors!

What a fun idea - we have a local resource centre that businesses donate unwanted materials to & I have a box of wool lying waiting to be used. Now I know what to do - watch out for some photos in the future! Thanks for sharing :)

Haha! I love the car idea. Wondering how I can run a biking session and felt at the same time....!

Use a zip-lock plastic bag - put the wool in this with hot water and soap. Then attach it to the seat and pedal hard!

I'm going to be messing about with making felt slippers in a similar manner!
