Question for you: I will need to embellish the tush on the longies I'm getting from the yarn for woollies swap: http://www.danceswithchairs.blogspot.com/
I think the longies color is a perfect base for fish! If I were to knit and then felt a fish, about how much do they felt? Is 25% of size a good guess? Does it depend on the type of wool? And will I need wool thread to sew on the embellishment?
Cute fish!! I have no idea on the embellishment other than you can sew them on with just the same yarn you used for the embellishment which holds the best. You can also use thread but it tends to cut the yarn if stretched and dealt with too much. I have never felted anything myself so I hope someones can give you some insight into that.
