The only tips I’d add specifically for working with wool felt would be: 1. to use small, sharp scissors; I like anything with a “micro tip” and have been using these Fiskars scissors* with great results and 2. Freezer paper is a great way to cut out felt shapes easily, see how I used freezer paper to cut out wool felt shapes in this post.
