Default using felt for clip embellishment

yay-my first post!!!

As I have become consumed with hairbows (shouldn't this website come with a disclaimer about abandon all hope, you will become hopelessly addicted and your family will think you ran off from them, but really you are just hidden under a pile of ribbon and alligator clips....) I decided that I needed to move on to felt animal clips. I have been using just plain old craft felt, and stitching around the edges to try to make it more durable. Will these things made with craft felt hold up if I were to try to sell them? I definitely don't want to sell a low quality item. Bad for the rep, you know

I don't use craft felt. Although it is cheaper, it will get fuzzy and look poopy over time. I use a wool-felt blend. I choose not to use 100% wool b/c of cost and really I don't think it is needed for a small hair accessory, but that is just me. Some people only use the 100% - but be prepared to spend some $$. I love the wool-blend - cuts great, no fuzz and very pretty.

thanks for the feedback- I would hate to put time and energy into making something, and then someone trusting me that it would hold up and it turned to poop!

I get durafelt from these people CENTRAL SHIPPEE: Your Source for Felt, Fabric & Fixtures I live near there so I go pick it up and can't say if they offer good shipping prices but the felt is beautiful, soft and holds together very nicely and the people that work there are very nice!

How does everyone find the shapes to cut out? Like flowers for example?
