At first I was going to do this as a felt badge, but realised it was going to be a wee bit big. So I put it onto fabric instead (flanellette) and added the words. The stitching of the words is a bit wonky, I know, but I was getting to the end and I just wanted to finish it.

It's made up of lots of different bits of felt, which was to give it some texture and dimensionality. I think the texture part worked at least.

Very cool! Any plans to do the others? Lannister lions, Greyjoy krakens, Baratheon stags... You could have quite the collection!

I'm reading the first book and I clicked on this because it was how I imagined their crest to be. It looks great.

It's based on the graphics they used for the tv show, so I can't take credit for that bit Smiley

Wow wow wow wow wow... All I can say. Do you find working with felt easy? Any special technique? (besides being able to cut those pieces out well!) I love all the felt embroidery projects to be super cool; this one tops the list.

Felt is great to work with. Nothing difficult about it at all. The quality of your felt makes the most difference.  A nice, thinner, wool-blend gives a much better and non-fuzzy result than the acrylic felt.

When I cut out complicated shapes like I did for this, I print the design multiple times, cut each piece out of the paper with extra for overlap, then use spray glue to stick them to the back of the felt. It's easy then to cut around it and it peels off with no problems either. I keep the paper pieces handy to be sure I'm lining up the felt properly.
