I recently undertook a personal challenge to craft one thing every day for the entire month of July. Since I like working with wool felt, and I can make a great felt badge in an hour or two, that's what I made whenever I was stuck for an idea.  Here they are...I really love them all, but the cat and the cupcake are probably my two favorites.

Halloween cat


Tiny houses


Embroidered leaf


Mushroom house


Kawaii mushroom


Pretty strawberry


Kawaii cupcake

These are fantastic! The tiny houses and the mushroom house are my favs. Those tiny houses with the tiny flowers are so adorable! I need to try making something like this sometime. Do you use wool felt or craft felt?

These are marvelous, Leslie.

I am lucky enough to have a couple of Leslie's felt creations and even with the quarter for comparison, it's hard to get a sense of the detail she's able to achieve with felt and floss. In-person her work is even more incredible!

I am so in love with all of these!  The mushrooms are especially adorable. 

Random story: Last year after Halloween, my partner bought this fake black Halloween tree on clearance, but they couldn't find the price tag or code for it at the register and gave it another code instead.  It rang up as "Halloween Cat" which is what we now call the tree, and I chuckled at the Halloween Cat badge.  It's cute!

Leslie, these are lovely! Your work is so meticulous and perfect. I would rob a Scout for a sash to sew these badges on, if I had some.

Just kidding about the robbery, but I do love your badges!

I thought about a scout-type sash too! Or using them on the front of a tote bag...but I don't want to subject them to a lot of wear, so I'm using some of them on doll dresses and hats, like this:

She is really pleased with her work! She's been back again to make an ocean scene including beads, sequins and ribbon. She's really inspired! We totally picked out the ribbed and braided fabric on purpose for just those reasons Blu, good eye Wink.
