This is so cheap and fun to make, I am loving it so much for gifts and art - I have the best idea for one for myself finally and am so excited to make it. Of these I have a hard time picking a favorite...each one is special  Grin

Are these patterns you've drawn?  very cool, very cool indeed.

I don't use patterns for the most part - I just play with the scissors until it comes out right  Smiley Although I will admit there are times when a bit of felt goes in the scrap bag because I cut it up too much to be usable. I do get a lot of inspiration from other crafts and art as well.

Agreed!!  She is great with her stripes and the clouds are perfect.

What a great idea for a great art piece!  I may have to try this idea out, once I am done with my one million seven thousand eleven-teen other projects... Grin

Adorable! My fave is the one styled like Come Fly With Me by Carambatack.  I love Annette's art, and you did a great job interpreting it with felt.

what type of fabric did you use in these?  Is there a particular kind that you use to embroider with or can it be any fabric?  just wondering, your art is so awesome, Id love to try it but, im basically a beginner at embroidery, I dont know how to do it correctly.

The base fabric is a linen type that I found a whole roll of in a thrift store, though you could use anything as the background fabric as long as its sturdy and will hold up to being embroidered upon. I still have a long way to go in embroidery techniques; the most common ones I use are backstitch, running stitch, and french knots, very basic and very easy to get down  Wink

They're all great! I like the spiderweb, and also how the leaves in the first one overlap the hoop a little. Well done!

Amazing. I've loved all your felt and embroidery pieces, and you just seem to get better and better. I adore the spider one and the girl floating away in particular, but I'd proudly hang any or all on my walls. You rock!
