I never work in felt. It's a mushy, shreddy fabric that really isn't suitable for the teeny detail work that I love.

But leave it to the Craftster crowd to make me mutter, "never say never."

The most lovely and talented BirdBones has inspired me with her fabulous felt badges (only "Friends of Craftster" will be able to see this link). BirdBones also inspired me just by being an absolutely fabulous human being. Wink

Then there was Limeriot's Tutorial which made me think that some of my graphic design work (crafting does not pay the rent, ya know) would convert to felt badge patterns.

Oh, and then there was the amazing Felt Badge Swap Gallery -- talk about a swap gallery filled with crafty win!

Finally, there's noooitaremybirthday's Lorax that features needle felting -- I was intrigued by how the felt just blended together.

I had to give it a try.



The tall Frankie is 4.5" (11.5cm) and the wee Frankie is 2.25" (5.7cm). While I was fairly pleased with the results, I'm also well aware that there are many flaws and that it's going to take a lot of practice for my skill level to be on par with my felty gurus.

DOWNLOAD:If you'd like to felt Frankie (Mr. Jivvy insists that "felt" (the fabric) is not a verb, lol... silly mister), here's the PDF file you can download: Free Frankenstein's Monster Felt Badge Pattern. The download includes the pattern in both sizes.

Please feel free to felt Frankie... and to do it better than I did. Smiley

Oh my goodness, Jivvy- I will never again believe it when you pretend not to be able to do something! Grin I love the Franken-teenies! They are really adorable and I am getting a little worried that the badges I made for you will need a LOT of extra detail-work to live up to the quality of your work... EEEEP.... Thank goodness I just started on a project concerning the 1:144 scale Wink I hope my evil masterplan will succeed....

lol... the photo misses some of the mess (like fraying edges and tons of little stray felty hair that is everywhere).

I am getting a little worried that the badges I made for you will need a LOT of extra detail-work

ha. I've seen your work -- I am not blowing smoke when I say how inspirational your badges have been to me. I <3 them tons.

@LimeRiot -- you know I love working small... but getting Frankie down to "acceptable" badge size nearly killed me.  Cheesy
