Here are a few of the things I've made since I last posted pictures--mostly stuff for my shop, though I REALLY need to get working on some of the stuff I wanted to make DH for his birthday next month.


Made three sets of these--hair clips! They're SO cute and I think I'm going to have to make some for myself to keep.


Business card holders--made four of them for my shop, and a fifth for myself to hold my own biz cards.


Felt tea wallets--made five of these for the shop.


I LOVE these ones! Set of picture frames, also for the shop. Though when I finished making them I looked them and was like, "Aw, can I keep 'em?"


Felt camera stuffy, also for the shop. I cut out another one and have every intention of sewing it together, but I'm kind of torn--thinking about not making a stuffy out of it. Thinking of making a camera pouch out of it instead, but I'm not sure.

Felt is so versatile and so darn cute!

I would go with making the case a pouch...a lot of people (like me), like practical and pretty! Wink

I also love the button on the business card holder...I noticed it because I have a small collection of those buttons that I found in my MIL stuff...are they vintage?  Mine are made of this really hard plastic?

Yeah, it's made of reeeeally hard plastic, and I'm pretty sure it's vintage because the plastic looks aged--not just worn out, but aged. I got it at a flea market a couple weeks ago, buried in a bag of a bunch of other buttons. There were some really neat vintage buttons in among the regular ones, and this was one of them.

I worked with felt for the first time this week....so painful. Is there an easy way to embroider it?

How was it difficult? I find most varieties of felt to be a pleasure to work and embroider with.

Trying to embroider straight on it, I could not get nice neat wording no matter how hard I tried. I used various strands of floss. Do you need to use a stabilizer? Should I have used a tapestry needle instead of a normal needle?
I don't have anywhere near this much trouble with the fabrics I usually use

I've never really had much of a problem and never used stabilizer with it. Mostly I've done backstitch on felt, but I don't imagine that other stitches would behave weirdly on it either. =/ And I used a regular embroidery needle. Sorry I'm not much help.

It may have just been poor quality felt. I bought a couple of multipacks from Spotlight, worked out to 50cents a 20cm x 30cm sheet/piece
