My challenge is…… wool !!! playing with felt, woolen yarn, raw wool ( I love needle felting! ). Using 12 inch size felt instead of pp, making felt embellishment, knitting….please enjoy to give something warm on your project.
For this challenge I chose to work with felt. I just love felt! Felt is warm, it has a smooth texture and it gives a very interesting “depth” to layouts. I used it on the green leaf on the left of mine, for an elegant finishing touch and… for the frame around the main subject of my layout! I took a piece of felt and cut a frame in it, to give the picture a sort of Polaroid feel to it. All this must have taken me just a couple of minutes! To fix it, I didn’t hesitate to use my sewing machine on the layout. It only takes a couple of stitches but of course, you can sew it by hand for a more personal touch.
I dug up all the felty bits I could find in my stash. I used felt flowers , felt to mat the photos and some felt trims. Great way to use up those bits and pieces! Since I hate sewing I attached everything with ZipDry Glue and Glue Dots.
I used a bit of felt to piece a cute little owl for this LO. The pattern for this little cutie can be found here. The felt added a homespun touch which I echoed in the stitched borders and crocheted trim.
I ended up going a bit simple on this one, using a piece of orange felt to mat my photo, as well as felt stick-on alphas for my title I found at Michaels. I really like the texture of the felt.
I die cut star borders out of red, glittery, adhesive felt. I then back the self-adhesive stars with different patterened papers.
