Here are my two year old's first attempts at felt. She enjoyed making the first piece so much she had another go and then decided that playing with the soap bubbles was more fun. One of her brothers was too busy playing a board game to be interested, but our seven year old thinks he knows it all after a two hour felt making class last summer. This was his piece (on the right).
I realised after I invited my friends round to make felt that I hadn't made any for ages and even better couldn't find my felt samples box. So I quickly made two little pieces to demonstrate how to make it. To use the cliche, it was a bit like riding a bike - my hands seemed to know what to do without me having to think about it. As I am so bad at tidying up the felt box is still out and I hope to make some more soon. It was so much fun and no pressure to make something fabulous, although I am thinking about how I could use it next, once I've added some stitch.
