Following the step, you’ll find it’s so easy to DIY felt fruits.

More than 60 original felt toys.
In the last few months, I reviewed the all patterns, instructions, choose the most popular itemes, revised the design drawings.
I have been trying to find a realistic way to product small batch DIY KITS, pre-cut accrording to the pattern, cheap, quick response.
laser cutting is the best option.
Until last year, it’s unavailable to find the laser cutting factory to produce for us.
Somewhat accidentally, I find a proper partner in center China. They can cut felt, 1mm, 2mm, 3mm, 5mm, by laser, according to customer-provide drawing, taking orders in small numbers.
Facts proved that approach was right. felt were cut pretty well by laser.
But , when one problem gets solved, another one appears.
newly laser cutting felt smelled like baked pork skin, because laser cutting is in the virtual equivalent of burning. but we have to find a solution as soon as possible.
washing them in the sink and hanging them to dry, the bad smell disappeared magically.
It’s my first time I tried to make my original design to batch production.
The new manufacturing methods make low-volume production runs more viable. thanks.
New products, cheap, better quality, buyers can sell the finished products , it’s the only authorization to sell felt toys designed by myself.

I bought a cutting paper machine last week, it is an electronic cutting tool for personal use. Like a home printer it plugs into your PC or Mac with a simple USB cable. However instead of printing it uses a small blade to cut paper cardstock vinyl fabric and more up to 12 wide and 10 feet long.
I always want to have a cut feltting felt tool. I know some laser cutting felt machine could cut felt, but it’s too expensive and I can’t bring my room to the smoke and ashes.
So I have a try on this cutting paper machine and succeeded.
It’s the result.
1. draw diagrams directly on laptop by Coreldraw. Yes, we need vector diagram not bitmap, JPG…
2. I change the blade with a ball point pen, then we can get a drawing machine.
It’s not bad.
3. It’s a most important step.
Put a sticker paper on the cutting mat, tear up the bottom, Put the felt on the sticker.
4. Put the cutting mat into the cutting machine.
We should change back the blade. as the felt thickness is about 1mm, we should use sharper blade.
5. with slower speed and more cutting force.
6. It’ done.
You my get felt from my etsy shop.
Is 3 mm felt only apply for making bag?
In fact, with the material we also could make lovely play food, cake, pie…
Because of the thickness, the filling cotton and cardboard are no longer necessary.
More simple than 1mm felt.
Would you like to try it ? I’ll list the diy tutorial tomorrow.
