    Sorry, i was amused...

    There are two types of felting, wet and dry. Although there are many different opinions on the best way.

    Use the heal of your hand and your thumb to pull out some fibres and lie them down in a tray (wet felting) or on a piece of foam (dry). Do this to the size of your piece with all the fibres going the same way. Then make another layer but going across those fibres so they go the other way. Repeat until you have many layers.
    What happens now differs from the different ways

    Wet felting
    Then sprinkle a little water over it and squirt on a little soap and put a cloth over it. Rub it gently in circles. Keep doing that until all the fibres have knitted together.

    Dry felting
    Then use a felting kneedle to stab the foam through the fibres until they knit together. Keep turning it over so that you dont end up completely velcroed to the foam.
    It also helps not to damage the table if you put a cutting mat under it.
    Don't do it on your knee.
    Be careful of the felting kneedle its really sharp.

    Cant explain it better than that though.
