I've got felt on the brain. Industrial felt...the fat kind... you know, around 1/4" thick. I am interested in cutting out some of the momento mori work out of white felt and blanket stitching or decoratively tacking the shapes to the top. Additionally, I would like to cover this felt entirely with buttons, old white buttons with all sorts of patina of age. I would also like to cut some squares of color (1" sq.) and tacking them in the middle. Kind of like tacking confetti to heavy weight fabric.
I found this cool site>>-- The Aetna Felt Corporation. They have all sorts of felt from woven, to pressed to needled. Whole Wool and composites. There is lightweight felt all the way to equestrian felt to a felt that is promoted as stiff as wood. There is felt for cars and for metal parts. There is felt for violins and instruments. Even chalkboard erasers have thick felts. And boot liners...it goes on. Buffalo Felt Products has an enlightening selection>>
More later. Have to get to some work...and then cooking.
