Felting
Hi everyone sorry I haven't been around lately, I've been busy doing a ton of things. I was wondering how do you felt something can children chew on felted knitting? I'm just cruious in general about felting how its done and stuff like that.
Thanks,
Raven

Hi Raven, Im new here, but thought this link might help since I was just reading up on it myself. Garter stitch seems to be a commonly used stitch for felting so perfect for a beginner, I imagine the only help the children would need is with the boiling water or the washing machine, which ever method you end up using.

Heres the thread on the forum I found the discussion in, which would be worth a quick sqiz too.

Just realised you meant literally to chew, I thought you meant to begin on, Im assuming you have a teething baby. I hope someone can give you some feedback on that. The only thing I would be concerned about is fibres getting stuck in the throat, but if that was not an issue you would want non toxic wool, if there is any such thing. I hope you find what your looking for.

Did you find your pattern Raven? Reading that thread inspired me, Im looking for a mobile (cell) phone felted cover pattern for my Galaxy S2, I've come across many but most are for smaller phones than mine, the search continues, or perhaps I'll just get the confidence to alter a pattern to suit my phone.
