I bought the Holiday Crafts issue of Better Homes and Gardens Special Interest Publications. I want to make your craft, Woodland Friends, ( two little red foxes in a wreath )but I am having trouble finding the felting wool for this project. Could you let me know where you got it from. And........BTW, this is the cutest thing I have ever seen. Thank you, Heather Rorison.

Hi Heather,
I usually use patterned felted wool for the chest & wool felt (but regular felt works too) for the body. Both types are available through several different vendors on Etsy. I also purchase the felted wool through a local shop here in Hudson, WI called Magnolia's. You may want to try calling them to see if they would ship- 715-808-0047. Good Luck with your project; I would LOVE to see a photo when it's completed:) BTW, the little foxes make charming Christmas tree ornaments as well. -Melissa
