Anyhoo, I decided to felt up some new Easter Eggs to show you how pretty these felted Easter Eggs can be (and how much better my photos are now??).

    I know true felting is with wool, but, do you think wads of lint from the clothes dryer filter would work? Perhaps, mix a little white glue in the water? Thanks

      I was just thinking the same thing...lint from the dryer. I love the way ideas are created and shared around here! Lovely felted eggs, btw...
