Arrow How to make felties??

How do you make felties?? Do you use a sewing machine? Are they easy to make? Are they time consuming? TIA

I believe you use an embroidery machine and from what I hear they are VERY time consuming.

You use an embroidery machine and it is time comsuming but you get faster as times goes on lol, I found I sold alot more wholesale than I did actually as clips, buying the designs is very addictive too I have like 100 designs and now I decided to quit doing it LOL.

Its not easy or cheap. Which is why they are usually around $1 each.

You need an embroidery machine, lots of embroidery thread, good thick wool and super sharp scissors.

Yes, you do need very expensive equipment to do it and it is very time consuming. That's why there are only a few people who make them successfully.

I know there are a few ladies on here that make them, but this place is great too!

Shelley, you are so funny, I was convinced a couple days ago to quit and not I am rethinking but have to come up with something new to do with them as clippies do not sell for me.
