Felt Fun

About a year ago, or more, Pat at Lost and Found mailed me a wonderful handmade sketchbook and a felt heart pin she made. I am so in love with this pin and its always wanted to make my own. This weekend I finally bought some felt and my mom and I worked together to figure how out to do this. Here is our work. My mom made the flower, and I made the circle piece. Barb is amazingly good at all crafts and gets it right on the first try! I needed another shot to get it right. I tried the bird later last night and am pleased with the results. 

Mom's flower

First try for me:)

My second go at it!
Then after making the little thingies, I thought I would try embroidering a typical doodle I do... I have to say that, for me,painting is a whole lot easier than embroidering! I've got to hand it to those who stitch! It's definately a process!
 I hope everyone had a very nice Valentine's Day!
Take care and will be back soon!

Daily as a matter of fact. 
Wish me some luck, for cryin' in a bucket.

Love these pins. Have you tried felting with natural fibers? To me it is fun and somehow makes more sense to a painter. Something to ponder?

That embroidery doodle piece you're doing looks really cool! Haha, but yeah, drawing seems easier, lol. These are really adorable and I love the colors. Felt is such a cool material.
