Any links to fun, simple sewing patterns using wool felt? I'm a newbie seamstress. I just made a few of the dress-up crowns from "The Creative Family"/Soulemama and am looking for other ideas.

: I'm interested too! Found some wool felt nearby that I got reasonably, and am looking for projects too.

I love the book, "Felt Craft" by Petra Berger. See if your library carries it. The project range from simple to quite complex and I enjoys working them up with my kids help.

The Salley Mavor books are wonderful inspiration.

There is a craft blog that I read and the bloggers have fondness for wool felt, so lots of their projects involve it.

I love wool felt too. I have made the birthday crowns for my kids and others, I make little gnome people and use the wool for the clothing. I made an entire advent calendar out of wool felt (so cool). The felt is nice to work with because it doesn't fray and you can just cut and embroider. I also like to use wool felt to make felt play food.

I also just bought this pattern at a quilt show this weekend that I'll make for a Christmas decoration.
