Awesome!  i love to work with felt.  I use mostly old sweaters I've washed in hot water, but I need to order some of this "fancy" felt.  It looks so yummy!

Will personal swap for ATCs (fabric or paper), Teesha Moore poptarts/pillows and most any kind of embroidery- PM me

This is PERFECT.  Two of my friends are having babies soon and I might have maybe gone a little overboard on quilts for the new arrivals, both in terms of money invested and time spent.  I wanted to give them something more than just a quilt, and this looks like the perfect quick-and-inexpensive second gift.  Cute elephant, and fantastic idea!

Beautifully done! That little elephant looks so happy! I absolutely love that you used stamps in this. Do you use regular stamping ink or special ink for fabric?

Ah ha!  I made a felt hoop a little while ago and used my glue gun to attach the felt before stitching.  Getting the needle through the glue was tough in some spots.  I had no idea there was a fabric glue stick!!

Thanks so much for sharing!

I've used this technique before to make a plushie and i LOVE IT!!  depending on the intricacies of the piece it can get a bit annoying, but as long as your organized, it works.

You made it sound so simple and easy, and i love the ellie!  great job!

This is SO cute!  I love the colors you used, and the little elephant is just the most adorable thing.  And thanks for the tutorial!  I need to try this out.

So cute!  I definitely love the colors, the red is great!!  I love working with felt in my embroidery as well.  Awesome tip of using some glue to put down the pieces, I didn't think of that.  I use light cardboard for my pattern pieces and the tiny ones I just end up winging.  I'll post my current piece soon...almost finito!  Cheesy

Thank you all for the comments! I do hope some of you try this technique. It's fun Smiley.

Thank you for the tips - you have inspired me to give this a go! is the word 'love' stamped onto the fabric? if so which ink would u recommend using?


I used a permanent ink pad for the stamping. It smells like a Sharpie Smiley. I got mine at Michaels.
