  9. I'd also like to know how the felt goes, especially how washable it is (and where it comes from). I was just given a copy of the first softies book but still haven't managed to make anything from it yet!

    Lovely pillowcase goodness as well...in my cleaning-frenzy (I wish!) I've come across so many thrifted pillowcases! Looking forward to seeing what you make with yours.

  10. I see I'm not the only one curious about the felt! Do you have a local supplier? How does it feel? How would you compare it to standard acrylic or wool felt?
