Thanks, Jill, for introducing the concept that "felt is our friend". But....I will leave felt behind me and move on. Fabric of any kind just does not like me. Not even felt, which has to be the easiest to deal with. I'm sure part of my problem is that there were no sharp scissors to be found that day. I decided it was just too much work. It's summertime and I'm a lazy crafter, I guess.
