Posts Tagged ‘Felt’

It’s been a little over a year since I first made a felt bird. And it was beyond time for me to make another. Well really a flock. It may be a small flock, but like nature they are a multiplying and I know there will be more to show you in the future. I especially love the yellow one and have a special project in mind for him/her.

Here are a few images. Notice the tiny one. I will definitely making more tiny ones!

3D Felt Portrait

I have been working on a secret project. Felt creatures as a present for real life creatures. A man and his dog. The ultimate connection. I cut out pieces for the bodies and a heart for each one. When I was done sewing the heart on the dog I had enough thread to sew the other heart onto the man and leave them connected. I also made a detachable 2-in-1 tie/cape for the man that is sort of like a super hero. It is symbolizing the strength the man has gained from having his dog by his side.

Stars

I love mobiles and had made several in my lifetime. Usually just for myself and for fun. I have the grandfather of the mobile Alexander Calder to thank for the invention.

A friend of mine is having a baby soon and so I had to make a present. Being a creative person I couldn’t just buy her something so I made her a mobile. She loves stars, the baby’s room is natural colors, and she mentioned me and a mobile. I do pick up on hints! I made it gender neutral because we are all going to be surprised in the sex of the baby till the little bundle arrives. It is made of felt, ribbon, and wire. Don’t worry the wire is only the hoop and it is covered so the future baby should never even be able to reach that. I also made it in a way so that it can be hung from the ceiling or any where after the crib is no longer needed.

Tomorrow is Mother’s Day and once again I have made my mother a card. I used some embroidery floss I got from the art swap, bristol board, buttons, ribbon, sticky back felt, crafting papers, and Double Tack Mounting Film (which I bought today at Dick Blick).  I think it came out great. Especially since I did my usual free wheeling no plans, just winged it art!
