....I LOVE FELT!!!!

Now I wouldn't normally say that felt was a type of fabric that I am drawn towards in making something. But feeling ever so festively inspired (and under the weather) I found myself sketching ideas for more Christmas ornaments. I had already figured out what I was going to make for the tutorials I wanted to post in the weeks running up to Christmas. Initially I thought I would set about making some for our tree but I think they turned out waaaay better than I expected, so off I went to get more felt, ribbon, brads and buttons and these are what I came up with.....

Very jolly Santa's, complete with pom pom hats.

Some very sweet gingerbread men, I adore these.

Some festive trees.

Some very handsome snowmen.

And last but not least some very heavenly angels.
They are all listed in my folksy shop (yes there is something in there at last) and my Etsy shop, you can buy them individually or as you can see below as a complete set of 5 Christmas characters.

I cant tell you how much fun I had making these....I don't think I'll be venturing into the world of felt characters as I know there are much more experienced peeps out there who already cover this and besides my true love lies with gorgeous colourful fabric so make sure you make the most of these cuties as once they are gone they are gone :D
Are you feeling festive now???
p.s. if you are looking for the tutorials, the links are to the right of this post.

  7. The ornaments you made are great. Do you have tutorials for them? I was looking, but could only find the ones for the star, the napkin rings, and the bow. I was curious. Tammy of Beaded Windsocks.
