1  UNITED STATES / Louisiana / Baton Rouge area on: May 05, 2009 01:50:43 PM
Just thought I'd try to revive the Baton Rouge crafting scene.  Or just the message board thread anyway.  Anybody near the capital area?

So I've been lurking on this site for a while now.  I did craft projects as a kid, but I've been more of the wistful, "I could make that!" type, rather than the one that actually makes it.  Anyway, I have 1 year old son and have recently realized how little I do that's not being a mom or working, so I have decided to throw myself into crafting.  I started small by buying a felt crafts kit from Barnes and Noble.  Are kits like heresy here?  Sorry - I had to start somewhere!  The kit's name is Felt Underground, by Marisa Mouton.  I made the second project in the kit, a make-up bag.  Because this is my first post, I'm not allowed to post pictures, but I've included links.  I hope they work!





You can see that my early stitches are more spaced out, but as I progressed, my neurotic nature took over and they got smaller and closer together.  I hand-stitched all of it, partly because that's what the kit said to do and partly because I have a machine but don't know how to use it.  

Thanks for looking!
