I have been thinking about felt.
I love the texture and colours of good quality felt, but have not attempted to make much with it as yet. But I have plans. Amorphous vague plans, but plans none the less. This hair-clip is something I have made with beautiful felt from here. I think I need to start off by making some more of them.
This is a stack of the felt (100% wool, hand dyed) that I got on that particular shopping trip, about a year ago this month. My mother and I ventured into unfamiliar territory to go there, as we needed cheering up – my little sister had just had brain surgery and it was a time in our lives when everything seemed pretty grim.
This beautiful stack of colour was just the ticket, but I have been reluctant to cut into it.
There was a good reason to get so much brown. I have plans (yes more plans) to make some gingerbread men for our Christmas tree at the end of the year, but I have no intentions on starting on that little project just yet. What are you making with felt?
