Hello! I'm new to the comm and this is my first post. I hope you enjoy it.

A few months ago, my husband and I found a barely-used Dora the Explorer backpack at a car boot sale. Our daughter loved it, but I couldn't help noticing it was missing something - the all-important Star Pocket! I took a notion and decided that I'd try to make one. Here are some pics I took during and after making it.

I forgot to take a picture of the materials I used, but here's a quick list:

* Felt in purple, red, yellow, blue, green, and pink.
* 6in zipper
* Needle and (purple) thread
* Hot glue gun and glue

First I cut the shapes I needed. The star shapes are about 8 inches in diameter and the connecting strip is about 2 inches wide. I attached the zipper to the connecting strip before I sewed it to the star shapes.

One thing you might notice is I actually ended up sewing the wrong side, but, in the end, you can't really tell and my daughter doesn't care, so woohoo! I'll know better for next time.

I made happy little stars to go inside, using the hot glue gun and different coloured felt pieces. She loves to take them up and throw them in the air, shouting "catch them, catch them!"

More glue gun action went into creating the multi-coloured front of the pocket. I also added a loop to the back of the pocket so that I could attach it to a keyring. I then used that to connect it to an open loop on the backpack rather than trying to sew the pocket completely onto it.

It's my first post here (no more lurking for me ;)), so, hello, everyone. 

After I got a gorgeous skein of Dale of Norway yarn as a gift, I immediately knew it was going to be my beret. But, the beret-to-be needed an embellishment, so I came up with a brooch. 

Made of pheasant feathers (some of them naturally iridescent), lots of glue and a piece of felt. Mess obtained equals only the fun I had. The design, if you can call it so, is entirely mine. And entirely random.

Hello crafters! I thought I would show you some poorly lit photos of the latest plushie I made. I just finished some custom likenesses of a few friends so it was nice not to have to care about replicating nose-shapes and other things and just make what I like! This is a gift for a friends birthday. Everything is totally hand-sewn, and the cat hair tangled in all the stitches is an added bonus.

More angles... )

I've only recently realized I had forgotten about the anniversary of my Tudor Project!
It was on February 6th, so I'm only 5 months late, no biggie. *facepalm into oblivion*

As a sort of celebration, I made a revision of the mega-post that signaled the original event over a year ago. Only this time you get to see new characters and new versions of the old ones thrown in the mix.

Word of caution: it's a BIG post.

Hot enough for you?

How about a dip in the ocean to cool off and make a new friend.

Yeah, I just want one more entry into the contest.  Don't hate me for wanting more chances at free schtuff!

This time up?


No, not the dinobot.  The felt stegosaurus.

I haven't shown this off here (yet) and figured now that there's a contest going on I might as well (I worry about spamming here, so I don't post every little thing I do).

One pic, sparkly octopus! )

Hi there ladies, I've not posted in this awesome comm since a while but I've kinda stalked all your awesome work. It's really inspiring and I'd love some feedback from all of you to improve my own work :)
So I thought to re-begin sharing my last crafty-post:

wiii! )

Some close ups under this here cut.

Finally a photo of the actual BASKET!!

It still needs decorated and all that but it was time to show it off a bit.  (that bit of ribbon was just to test that it would work for what I'm planning)

One more pic this way. )

I'm starting work on an easter basket full of goodies for my sister and want to make sure I haven't missed any of the must have items.

Here's what I have on my "to craft" list:

Felt (or felted) food items:
1.  Marshmallow peeps and chicks
2.  Chocolate bunny
3.  Jelly beans
4.  Easter eggs
5.  Little wrapped candies

Non-food items
1.  Bunnies
2.  Chicks
3.  Lamb
(and if I'm super ambitious, the basket--but I'm not holding myself to that one)

What am I missing?  What are your must have easter items?

(and any extra tips on wet felting is appreciated--I'm trying my hand at it for the first time for this project)

Felt Owls

4 felt owls, hand sewn and given a ribbon loop to attach a key chain loop. When I make multiples of a pattern like this I have a really hard time making the same thing in the same color over and over so I tend to never make the same color combination ever again XD fortunately making these owls and experimenting with the colors is fun!
