several different ways to describe "felt" i guess...
there's felt - like the thick wool stuff you see for crafts a lot....
then there's felted knitting or crochet work. basically it gets wet/mashed around and the fibers all work together to make it felted.... it still has the look of knitting/crochet, but also a more solid/fuzzy look too (am i making any sense/describing this right??)
and then the process of felting wool into an object is needle felting i believe... where you manipulate raw or died wool into shapes by wetting it and mashing it around. it then becomes a solid "felted" object
It might be too late for the OP as a few months have passed now, but I just used premanufactured toy foods as the starting point for my felt toys.
I used them as templates for size and detail and drafted paper patterns from them.
Cookies (these I used real cookie cutters as the pattern)
Breakfast - 2 fried eggs, 2 slices of toast, 2 pancakes, and 2 slices of bacon
Cheeseburger - Top & bottom bun, slice of cheese, lettuce, pickles, tomato, onion, burger patty
I had such fun creating these that I did go ahead and buy two of the Japanese felt books.
