I made one a while back but it it fell apart. I think it was too thin. Has anyone made one?

I can't find the link. I watched a video that showed how to make one. I think if I just used more wool and then went back over it and needle felted it it would work much better. I plan on trying it again and I can teach you.

I am thinking this could be make a toy of the month for September and do an autumn themed play mat.

That would be awesome!  How much wool do you think each mat would require?

I'm not sure it would depend on the size. Would you be able to help me figure it out?

Oh, I could try.  I haven't wet felted anything that big yet.  I'm sure a pound or two would be plenty.  Tongue

Oh I am sure as well. My problem was that I had the one I did all planned out with a small scene but I didn't have enough and it ended up with large gaping holes.

Cool!  It wouldn't take that much wool, I don't think.  Wink

Well, not that much is still relative.  I've felted quite a few things.  Wink
