Felt patterns for Kids
A note from Leanne: I have listed the projects on this page that I made specifically for felt boards. However, the vast majority of the coloring pages on the site are stand alone images that can be colored, cut out and used for the felt board. In particular, I've received positive comments about the Simple Characters and Shapes pages (it includes apples, autumn leaves, snowflakes, triangles, circles, squares, sun, star, etc) so please take a minute to check them out too.
To make a paper sheet into a felt board character, cut out a small piece of felt or coarse sandpaper and tape or glue it on the back of each character. The sandpaper or felt will allow the characters to stick on your felt board. You can also laminate or cover with clear contact paper to make it longer lasting.
A suggestion from a viewer: "Instead of using a flannel board I use a cookie sheet, I first laminate all the pieces then put magnets on the backs I find this work better for little children. They are able to get the stories out and keep up with the pieces."
Thanks for sharing your idea Sharon!
A suggestion from a viewer: "Instead of putting sandpaper on the back of templates for felt board stories we have found that milk filters are perfect in making your flannels. You can find them and your local fleet farm/farm and fleet stores in the farm isle this works great youcan see right through it and it sticks great to a piece of felt."

A suggestion from a viewer: "I was using felt glued to the backs of my laminated pieces but found them to be heavy and often peeled off. Instead I now use the velcro from diapers. I tear them off the diapers. They are smooth to the touch, glue easily onto the laminated pieces, don't cost me anything and stick just as well to the felt boards as the flannel did without the added bulk and weight. Also, if using a white board or magnetic board: I recently found magnetic tape at a local store (I live in Sweden). It works wonderfully!"how to make a shopping list with google home what is the main shopping street in belfast what shops are open in lakeside shopping centre how long does it take to sell a house uk how do large shopping malls affect small local businesses why cant i stop shopping how to change name on house deeds after death when shopping smart at the grocery store a person should how to set up shopping on facebook how to get rid of the shopping bag on instagram what are good shopping websites what is cheap in china for shopping when is late night christmas shopping what are the busiest shopping days how much are google shopping ads what is dubai famous for shopping how many kwh does a house use per day where to get shopping coupons uk what is compulsive shopping disorder how to create online shopping website free who lives in clarence house how to start online shopping business philippines what shopping cart platform does wix use what are reusable shopping bags made of how to set up a shopping cart when does christmas shopping start how do online shopping sites make profit what happens after you bid on a council house shopping in china what to buy how to get the nook shopping app how to register a online shopping company in india how to uninstall shopping deals how to create a shopping list on iphone why is bid shopping unethical where is chadstone shopping centre in melbourne what is cheap in singapore for shopping

How to make a pattern into felt? | Yahoo Answers
Wool shrinks by approx 1/3 during felting. It is hard to be exact.
If I were going to make an item out of felted shapes I would knit up my wool, either in the shapes required, or as a long strip then cut out the shape I wanted.
I would then join the shapes and felt the finished piece.
