Felt: A First Foray

I’m settling down to some making. Felt, when I first thought of using it, conjured up images of cute little stuffed hearts and animals, or a bit of embroidery. And that is where I have begun.

Out come the needle and thread.

Geometric Neon Mug Cosy

These little packs from Mollie Makes Magazine have been waiting for a chance to shine (and come out of their packets).
They’re great and come with all the bits you need. Plus I’m a sucker for a “free” magazine gift.

The Pom Pom Bunny

This cute bunny has no purpose whatsoever other than being just so lovely. Having lost the instructions a little improvising was in order. Testing my memory of how to do back stick, blanket stitch and make a pompom, I think she came out alright! Filled with risotto rice, she also serves as an emergency food ration device.

Ideas for names welcome.

All in all I enjoyed my first felt foray! Hooray!
