More Fun with Felt!

I've been saving up a few more felties to share with you! First off, some needlefelted fruit - from Jenn Docherty's book "Sweet Needle Felts".



Then my son asked me to make him a dog, so I pulled out the "Little Felted Animals" book by Marie-Noelle Horvath. As you can see, it turned into a cat instead. Needlefelting animals takes some practice for sure.... the head and body are pretty straight-forward, but the ears/tail/legs were a little challenging for me.



You may remember from my first post about felting, that I was looking for a specific Sizzix die. We'll I am happy to report that I found it! It is a new April release - Sizzix Bigz Die Flower - Build-a-Flower #3 and can be seen --> here. As you can see below, I kinda couldn't stop making these once I started - LOL! This is the first Sizzix die I've used in my Cuttlebug and it worked beautifully!


Next up is a cashmere sweater bunny (tutorial/pattern by Betz White)... so soft! The egg is wet felted and then I needle felted some pink roving to look like ric rac.



And a few more felted sweater cupcakes (from Betz's Warm Fuzzies book)... I'm addicted to making these too (plus as you can see I've found quite a few wonderful wool sweaters - which were starting to pile up!) I think all the women in my family will be getting one of these for Christmas - LOL!

Ok - hope you enjoyed them - now back to stamping! :)
