felting machine

The next toy I want to purchase is a felting machine! I got to work on 1 recently and just fell in love!!

I've done needle felting. Years ago I also tried my hand at wet felting. This is more in line with the needle felting. Only it's needle felting on steroids!

In a course with the amazing Liz Kettle, I made the book pictured below. We felted the cover with natural fibers (such as wool roving and assorted silks, cottons, etc) over a wool base. We then did a simple binding to add a sketchbook. I'm completely in love with how it came out.

Your book looks very cool. I've never heard of a felting machine. Sounds like it makes things much easier!
