Wool Felt Crafts
In searching the local craft and fabric store I discovered that none of them carries the wool felt I wanted. They do have some made of Polyester from recycled soda bottles. I settled for some of this to hold me over until my wool felt order came in from Prairie Point Junction. I haven’t received such a nice looking package in a long time. All those neatly rolled felt squares tied with jute! This should keep me busy for some time to come.
I first set out to make a pig for my step-mother who lives in Georgia, she loves pigs!
This pattern I found here. It didn’t turn out so bad. The instructions said to sew it right sides together and turn then stuff. I wanted the darker pink blanket stitching to show so I didn’t do that, I just matched the pattern up and started sewing.
I will be on the lookout for another pig pattern for a future project for her. In the mean time I can also see this one with tiny pockets on the sides to hold her sewing supplies as she does her counted cross stitch while watching tv in the evenings.
The flower I didn’t have a pattern for, I just picked up the scissors and started cutting and sewing. I also embroidered a flower into this little piggy’s ear. Next time I will make it a bit smaller because it folds up into the ear.
I had also wanted a pattern for a horse and came up with this one here. This is the grey one in the picture. The black horse is a pattern I purchased off Esty.
Next my Granddaughter, Daisy, was given a tea set for Christmas. She needed some play food to serve with her tea. I found several patterns for felt play food, more on those another day.
I was using a scrap piece of felt to hold all my pins I was using and this inspiration came to me. I’m quite sure the idea is not original. But this is my version.
I will post more soon. Hope you are keeping busy too…
