    Default best place to buy felt?

    I am in the midst of making felt food. I bought a few sheets at Michael's. Is there a cheaper option?

    I buy mine at Len's Mill Store now. It's a better deal than by the sheet, and better quality than some of the sheets I've bought in the past. Fabricland would be a good choice too, but either way, I'd buy off a big roll instead of the sheets.

    I only got to the 15th on my advent calendar. I blame my DH for loosing my needle.

    Fabricland has it by the meter. I picked up a selection of colours last week at the members 50% off sale for the playfood I'm making. Most rolls are reg $8/m. Some are $16/m and double the width of the $8 rolls. Many of the rolls are 100% polyester made from recycled post consumer plastic bottles.

    Lens Mills or Fabricland depending on how much you need.

    Len's Mill has BAGS of smaller pieces at the back in the remnant section. I have often taken a look at the bags, seeing if they were worth it, and they totally look like it! The price was SUPER cheap too... Might be worth checking out too..

    Good news! Just saw an ad for fabricland. Everything that is not already on sale (excluding promotional goods) is 40% off without a membership.

    I quadrouple the Fabricland suggestion ... $ store felt is ok for crafts the kids are making for themselves and you are ok with them falling apart cause it is about the process and not the product ...but IME it is very thin and easily tears so not ideal for any craft work that is intended to last up over time - such as the felt food that you want to be able to wash up if necessary and such

    Have fun
