Oh dear. I may have just spent £100 on felt...

I couldn't help myself. It meant I got free shipping (from Nepal! To arrive within a week!) which would otherwise have cost me £47...
Plus that amount of felt from the UK would have been at least £1146... so technically I've actually saved nearly £1200 right?! confused

Plus it is 100% wool, handmade, ethically made and sourced toxic free felt...

(I'm probably not going to tell my OH by the way...)

The OP made me laugh, then I read on and found myself drooling slightly...3mm wonder you got carried away!

Send us a link for your eBay sale?

It's stiff enough for a bag definitely. That's what I'm making with it.

Will pm you the link as soon as I've listed, yuleheart

You know how Kirstie's rug had the holes in it... you could punch a pattern in the top layer and sandwich it together with a brightly coloured one underneath...

Ooooh.... it looks more rustic than the uniform shop bought stuff in the UK.

Very nice!

What does it feel like? Is it thick and stiff and suitable for something like bag making or is it soft enough for crafting. Just thinking about my possible sewing club at the DC's school. I notice on your link that they also do polyester felt very cheaply, which might be easier to work with for kids.

kirsty... stupid phone...

Annianni Thu 20-Dec-12 09:10:39

Oh that selina rose site is lovely.

I could spend a fortune grin

I've got fabric envy....

I watched kitsty and the fabric did seem a bit stiffer.

yuleheart Thu 20-Dec-12 08:43:04

oooh, in that case can you pm a link to the listing?

I sooooooooooooooooooooooo neeeeeeeeeeed the teal and purple colour smile

Cut pieces

Better photo (ish) this time.

This is literally 1/117th of my new felt stash! (This is the inital stuff I'm selling off i think)

yuleheart Wed 19-Dec-12 08:56:26

envy smile

What are you going to do with it?

It looks too soft for a rug - the stuff Kirstie used was much firmer I think.

NotAChocolateRaisin Tue 18-Dec-12 23:05:52

Home and taken some pictures (came home early v. excited!)

Photos are crap but will post up the links if I sell them online when I'll take professional pictures.

Plus, its 11 in the evening - who takes a decent photo then?

I hope not! I'd be furious!

DoesntTurkeyNSproutSoupDragOn Tue 18-Dec-12 17:31:58

Hmmmm.... Did your OH deliberately hold it back until you'd gone away?

NotAChocolateRaisin Tue 18-Dec-12 16:10:17

I can't wait to get home!!! It's actually a factor in my decision to leave me job early (sad) to go and see it!

angry A bit of a teaser thread.

I've had fabric envy in the past, but this is my first episode of felt envy. grin

NotAChocolateRaisin Tue 18-Dec-12 14:17:25

It's arrived! But I'm in London all week now....

NotAChocolateRaisin Mon 17-Dec-12 19:17:58

Will take a photo as soon as I get it! Having it delivered to OH at work so tackle him everytime he comes through the door!

DoesntTurkeyNSproutSoupDragOn Mon 17-Dec-12 18:25:36

I'm pretty sure the rug Kirsty ,Made was 3mm

yuleheart Mon 17-Dec-12 16:52:31

..... so am I!

can we have a photo when it arrives?

DoesntTurkeyNSproutSoupDragOn Mon 17-Dec-12 14:37:38

I'm so jealous of your felt... smile

yuleheart Mon 17-Dec-12 13:23:58

This is the woman who showed Kirstie how to make the rug, she sells kits to do it:

NotAChocolateRaisin Mon 17-Dec-12 10:55:18

Felt is so expensive in the UK.

This felt is 3mm thick so may make an ok rug?

I love some of the ideas on Kirsties program's but sometimes she's just dipping a pear in paint and acting like its tres chic and wonderful!
