Fall Felt Leaves Wreath

I completed my first project with the new wool blend felt. I had this smaller Styrofoam wreath that I wrapped in a variegated yarn. I used Lime Riot’s felt leaf tutorial that she shared on Leslie’s Art and Sew. I used all the colors for Crafty Sheep’s September Color Challenge. This little Fall wreath will find it’s home on the shelf above my sewing machine. I will show the complete shelf next week.


New Arrival – Felt!

I received my first order of wool blend felt. I am so excited! I can’t wait to see what crafty creations I can make with all this felty goodness. I also ordered and received the book, 
There really are some super-cute ideas. But my first felt project will be some form of  Limeriot’s Fall leaves for the Craft Sheep September Color Challenge. 
Do you work with felt and if so, what is your favorite book or blog about felt?

Felt and Embroidery Hoop Project

I completed my first felt and embroidery hoop project. It is for a friend who is having a precious boy in May. I completed the back off by doing a running stitch around the extra linen fabric, pulled it tight and knotted it off. I then cut a piece of felt to fit the back and sewed it to the linen for a finished look. To dress the hoop up a little bit, I glued on ric-rac around the hoops edge.  I think it turned out well for a first try. 🙂

My inspiration to even try felt and embroidery together came from Lime Riot. This tutorial link was my first introduction, http://limeriot.blogspot.com/2011/06/felt-embroidery-tutorial.html.
The Trouble with Crafting, http://thetroublewithcrafting.blogspot.com/2011/05/finishing-hoop-with-felt.html,  showed me how to finish off the back with felt. Of course, both of these ladies have a much more professional look. But, hey, it’s my first try! 🙂 I’m happy with it.
