691  I'm obsessed with felt can you tell? now mushrooms gnomes and trees! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by sheepBlue on: June 27, 2010 05:04:18 AM
I have fallen deeply madly in love with felt because it's just so much fun to work with - I love the felt embroidered hoop art I've been making but wanted to branch out because it can be so versatile. Thus a woodland play scene is born - this was a challenge since everything is tiny and I rarely make anything 3-D but I think it came out pretty well  Grin Well minus the bird...that's not so great.

This picture demonstrates how the tree is stackable - I constructed it from 3 cardboard cones and then hot glued strips of felt around it to become the layers of the tree. I know I could have sewn the whole thing but I was working on limited time. As well if I did so it it wouldn't have been stackable  Grin I love how it could be either one big tree or several smaller trees.

Here's a link to more pictures!

692  Felt Hoop art - taking a tiny twist in Needlework: Completed Projects by sheepBlue on: June 27, 2010 04:56:09 AM
Here's a few more pieces I've made - the first two are OWS swap items and I am completely in love with the zombie birds and eyeball!!  Cheesy I'm going to have to explore a more "alternative" vein than the cutesy art I've been making up until now - nothing wrong with it and super cute! Zombies are just so much fun  Smiley Sorry about the last picture - it was another swap item and for some reason I never found time to take a good picture before sending. I hope you guys like them!!

I received from *Sly*Sev*Steph* a hilarious painting today! I love octo art and this is perfect  Cheesy I love the tones of blue - the octopus is a lot clearer in person. She also sent along some fun extras too - I swear I almost bought a wire cutter like that and am now very thankful I didn't haha!

Thanks so much!!

Prepare to be ROCKED!!! I knew Alwaysinmyroom was cooking up some crazy cool but I had no idea how insanely perfect it is for me *swoon!* Stretch out your wisting fingers, I'm going to go picture crazy - I can't leave out any detail of what she did for me  Grin

When Linda and I were initially partnered she asked what I would love to have and I said a messenger bag for school. I have one right now but it is really boring and my stuff constantly falls out of it all the time - not to mention the bottle pocket holders were worthless because nothing would fit! (a shared complaint haha). Linda is some sort of wizard because she put this together for me!!!! I can't even tell you how detailed and finely crafted it is!!! First off I LOVE the colors! I told her I love bright bold colors and wanted something funky that was unique. She totally nailed it  Cheesy She used Kaffe Fassett fabrics which are so beautiful - each piece looks like a piece of art.

She mentioned in her note that she took inspiration from my altered puzzles and made each piece individualized with embroidery, beading, felt applique, etc and if you take notice the edges of each are darkened with fabric paint just like I do on my altered art! It's awesome!!!!  Grin Grin

Here is the back panel that opens up in a big side pocket and has my avatar sitting on top!  Cheesy The close-up shows the HILARIOUS machine embroidered text that runs underneath!! I need one of those hahaha.

Here's the inside which is HUGE! Not only am I going to have a totally awesome unique bag but it can hold EVERYTHING I could possibly want to bring to school with me. Linda mentioned that it would definitely work as a carry-on bag too which is great because I only do carry-on when traveling now since the crummy airlines charge now for checked bags. And there's a zipper on top so my stuff won't fall out anymore  Grin The last picture here says it all!

Linda I can not thank you enough for making this for me. I can feel it when I'm holding the bag how much time and effort and love and thoughtfulness went into the making and I will cherish this for years to come. Thank you!!!!
