I think I've fallen in love with felt. I just can't stop buying and making things with felt.I have a little bit of a felt fetish at the moment ;)
A little while ago I made a pink felt bunny hanging decoration from a craft magazine for Eilys grandaughter Summer and I really enjoyed it. I later made another one in blue, a bears face and a house out of felt and it got me thinking about other things I could make from felt.
People on facebook had started talking about making things ready for christmas and as I have always liked the idea of handmade decorations and last year made myself a felt mitten garland I decided to get a few sheets of felt and have a go.
In a craft magazine I'd just bought there was a template sheet of letters so using these I made a Noel banner out of felt and a set of tree decorations saying noel too. I also made a felt letter and added a button and ribbon detail which I thought would be a nice thing to hang in a childs room using their own initial.
He came back with more of the star felt and also some gorgeous red and white and pink and white polka dot felt which I fell in love with instantly, the red one reminded me of minnie mouse with her spotty dress and bow. He'd also brought me the big heart die cut for my bigshot that I'd had my eye on for a few weeks. So that evening I got my bigshot out and sat cutting out heart shapes from felt and other material too.
