I Never Knew.......

That a pound of felt could be so much fun!

I've seen a lot of crafting with felt being done, especially on Elizabeth's blog and on Holly's blog Cotton Pickin'fun and I decided I wanted to give crafting with felt a try.

I wanted some different colors besides the seasonal felt squares you can find at Michaels but I wasn't sure where to look.

Elizabeth suggested buying the felt at Joggles.....I visited the website and found out I was able to buy a pound of scrap felt! No promises as to what colors the pound of felt would be made up of......

You know sort of like a grab bag!

A couple of patterns sketched

And I was on my way!

It's been years since I've done any hand stitching.......and I sure can tell! My stitches are not always even, and some are longer than others.


It sure is fun trying something different!



  1. Hey, nice stitching! That is a great selection of "scraps" too. I know that I have way more fun being creative with scraps, especially other people's because they don't seem to come with any "expectations." Have fun!

  2. I love playing with felt but I'm not the best of friends with my needle and thread. Looks like you are having fun! Enjoy! Happy creating!

  3. looks like there will soon be some bunnies and chicks hopping around at your place! looking forward to seeing your finished projects!
    happy Weekend Chris!!

  4. Joggles has the best felt ever! The choice of colors is staggering.. Can't wait to see your finished projects!

  5. How darling! Your scraps have a great mix of colors. =)

  6. What adorable sketches! I can't wait to see the finished product. I buy from Joggles too, but never knew that they sell by the pound! Lol-i just get the felt that I need and quickly order because if I don't my Joggles bill ends up being more than my electric bill :)
    Have a wonderful day and happy stitching,

  7. Oh, how darling Chris!! You have inspired me to play with some felt this weekend! I love your adorable chick and bunny!! Too cute! xo Heather

  8. Yeah Chris! We've got you! You will have so much fun, and your characters are so very sweet. I can't wait to see them finished! Happy Day! Elizabeth

  9. What fun felt can be. Love your bunnies and chicks. Hope you have a great weekend.

  10. What cute little critters! I didn't know about the pound of scrap felt - great idea!
    Happy Weekend!
