Here is the March felt-a-long.  It maybe starting it early but I figure it has to be March somewhere tomorrow. 

The theme is Nature and we would like to (but not necessary) to incorporate some other craft/art. 

Some examples:

Wet felt and then make homemade paper with the wet felt bits.
Knit a hat then wet/needle the accessories.
Wet felt a purse then knit some decorations.
Wet/needle a flower then incorporate knit, crochet, beading.
Beading of anything of wet/needle felt origin.
Woodwork a shelf and create a wet/needle cover.

Anymore examples???  Pictures for inspiration?Huh  I will try to add some as the days tick.

I haven't participated in any of the felt-alongs yet, but my mind is spinning with ideas, so this one may get me...

ME TOO!!  Wink  Grin

I just purchased some amazing glass beads, which I will be using in the centres of some new felt flowers (but of course. heehee)
hmmm.. Paper and fibre, teamwang sent me a dragonfly needled directly onto some paper I painted for her. I cant find it! or I'd take a pic!
Hopefully, the goreous Miss Wang will drop by soon.  Smiley

You're welcome Cheesy.  She used to have kits posted on her site that you could buy for lots of money, but I wasn't able to find them this time...
