Post Working With Felt???

I bought some felt to try and make some felt pieces to use on clippies or for centers but I'm nervous to try it...in the past when I worked with felt the edges always got a like frayed edge look and I'm not sure how to prevent that from happening again. Basically I need any advice you ladies can share to help me with working with it! Thanks in advance!

Some do use the felt from there (HL) but I personally don't. I don't like using craft felt.

I like blended wool or 100% wool felt. I get mine online. You could also find these 2 kinds of felt on Etsy (under Supplies). The edges won't fray. =)

I work with craft felt...
You have to understand that craft felt can be varient in thickness which can suck sometimes...double up your felt for durability...
And keep in mind when you have fuzzy edges...quick run a lighter around edges (NOT TOO CLOSE) to clean up the fuzziness and it helps "seal" the edges to keep them from staying fuzzy or getting worse.
