I was partnered with pjherbert for the Felt Badge Swap Rd 2.  I was super inspired by pjherbert's pinterest board - she has a lot of really beautiful felt creations there.  I picked my two favorites, and I think I made her happy.  It sure made me happy to craft them - Although the badges I made are similar to the originals, I had my own ideas on exactly the way the badges were executed.

Here is the first badge - my all time favorite - little beach huts - the image on the left is a photocopy of the one on her pinterest, and the one on the right is the one I crafted.  This one I really really wanted to keep.
 

The second badge is another from her pinterest - a little simpler, but I added some grass sprouts and tiny flower buttons - and the bird on the original (left image) is a pink button.  The bird on the badge I sent pjherbert is all felt (right image) - he's a little smaller than my pinkie fingernail - teeny - I love him - French knot for an eye.


And here they are together, with a quarter in the photo for size reference.  I am now officially addicted to making felt badges.


I'm sure there will be more rounds of this swap.  You should sign up!  It is so fun to see what all the swappers are coming up with!  The badges are not difficult to create - for me, it was lovely to sit and stitch by hand, totally relaxing - I really wanted to go to the ocean when I finished these - but I live in Kansas, and alas, the only sandy beaches here are manmade and adjoin lakes or ponds!  

Happy Summer, pjherbert!!   Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool
