I had made some lightweight felt, the cerise one, and this was very easy to work with, better than the more solid commercial ones. It was amazing that I could join two pices of fabric together this way, no thread at all.
This little sample allowed me to try out lots of materials and threads.
Trimming the sample down and using the embellisher to attach the little sample to a larger piece of felt work well.
Adding beads and some hand stitching worked ok too.
Don't think I would buy a machine but will look at needle felting as a possible means of adding interest to the surface of some of my work in the future.
