Here is my latest felt creation, an Underwood typewriter. The typewriter it is modeled on was my boyfriend's great-great-grandfathers. It took me several weeks of non stop sewing to finish. The felt is hand dyed and the details are embroidered. I added some real screws that I tarnished in vinegar. The roller rotates so that a piece of paper can be added with some typed words on it.
I hope you like it!!
