Spider Applique Block

Hopefully you won't find this spider going up your water spout! I designed this applique because Bug wanted more bugs in his life 🙂 When we were making stamps for our Letterboxing Nature Journals, Bug wanted something that "boys like". He was quite smitten with the spider, and since that time, this spider has appeared many places. It was designed to fit a 6" x 6" block but can be enlarged or reduced to meet your needs. For tips on cutting out felt, check out our blog post HERE. The pattern for this spider can be found HERE. Enjoy!

    1. SPIDER!!! (ironically I had opportunity to yell this at work today when one of the wee buggers literally jumped at me when I was cleaning a particularly filthy corner of my shop. A customer escorted the offender to a hedge nearby)
      Lovin’ this, it looks like the perfect addition to my work- in- progress woodland themed bedroom. I think I might use it as an adornment for a rather bland lamp shade which, at the moment, stands out like a sore thumb.
      What a sweet thing to help cure my arachnophobia, thank you!
