What's everyone up to?? I've discovered a new love...felt!! I know, it's been around for ages and there was a time everyone was into making things with it...I'm a little behind, but I love it.
I just made a postcard for an elderly lady in the UK, who stays in a nursing home there. A lovely friend of mine told me about her, and took the initiative of getting sisters together to send postcards to her. May Allah reward her for her good intentions and deeds. Ameen.
So ya, it was wayyyyyyyyy to cold to go postcard hunting here, so I just made it!
I first worked on the felt. I used whatever I had on hand (no white felt) so yarn for the 'snow' and beads for the snowflakes. Then the back, I used two pieces of cardstock, so it's really sturdy and glued it to the felt before doing a blanket stitch all round.
The moose isn't exactly my design, the inspiration came from here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/25565902@N04/7447878326/
Will post up my other 'projects' soon!
Anyone else who's worked with felt, all tips and ideas are welcome!!
