    okay well you should kinda know what your doing if you've read my felting how-to
    <br>
    now just figure out what shape/object you want your brooch to be =]
    <br>
    usually i just look through mags, comic books, or just make things that i saw at a store
    or just start making a random colorful abstract shape
    it doesnt have to be perfect or make any sense

Do you use styrofoam? I use a soft squishy foam like you would use for stuffing coaches or something. How long do your needles last? Does the styrofoam shed as you work with it? Sorry..not a lot of felters around for me to ask questions!
