Felt Fun

I got a chance to have a play with some of the crafts in the Fa La La La Felt book at last. Saturday I got the ornament above sewn & beaded! It's quite cute. I did a cross version of the 2 different ornaments like it in the book. It was a bit of an experiment. I think my beads are small compared to the ones used in the book. I used Mill Hill glass beads as that is what I have in large supply! Also had to get the number of strands down to fit through them of course so I will have to keep an eye our for a few in a larger size if I plan to do a few more of these. I haven't put a ribbon hanger on it yet as I need to find something that will put a decent hole in the top! I have a punch but it won't go through one layer of felt & this is 2 felt & wadding in the middle! Anyone recommend a good hole punch for this sort of thing?


Below is Owl. Actually it isn't mine any more. BJ has claimed it I think. He isn't a very Christmasy owl but it is way cute. I will make some more. I have to make BJ a bigger one to play with. He keeps asking this morning for it already! I will see what I can do. It was fun as I got to play with a bunch of stash - felt, floss, ribbon & buttons! Woohoo!

Thanks to Angelina for showing me this great book so I was forced to buy it myself! lol It's a really great book!
