Other than fairly regularly but accidentally, 'felting' a jumper in the wash, I have never tried felting. Hot of the press, is this great little tutorial for creating a felt button, which I would love to have a go at making.
Cintia from My Poppet has produced the tutorial to make a large needle-felted button for the Haby Goddess, which has daily sewing tips and craft ideas, with a fabulous online store selling lots of goodies too!
The tutorial to make the button is here and don't forget - if you do manage to make anything crafty using buttons - I would love to see it! Pop over to the Bonkers About Buttons Facebook page here and post your photos.
