Felt & Felting (Page 3)

There is just no way I can write this blog without making your jealous. Seriously. But I was so touched that I can't not share it either. (Don't you hate double negatives?) So here goes. A couple of days before Christmas, my postman left a slip in my mailbox saying I missed a delivery. Really? I was home all day and my dogs light upRead More →

I woke up at 6:00 Monday morning with an idea. I must dream in crafts, because I often wake up with some scathingly brilliant or totally lame idea… my dreams don’t always transfer well to wakefulness! Anyway, I knew I wanted to add something to Bug’s Art Supply Messenger Bag,Read More →

Back in early November, I had my idea for Bug’s Christmas gift. He LOVES to draw, and I thought it was high time he had his own supplies. So, I got him a sketch book, a couple of “how to draw” books, and a nice set of pencils and erasers. Read More →

  Several weeks ago a reader asked me for a applique block for a cardinal. I finally got it done 🙂 Although we have cardinals in our backyard year round, they look their loveliest in the winter world. Here, we have a male cardinal perched in a tree. I’m sureRead More →

How would YOU like to become a Blanket Stitch Whiz? One of the most common questions I receive is, “How do you get your stitches so even?” Well, my normal reply is practice, practice, practice, and although that is true, over the years, I have developed some habits that haveRead More →

A couple of weeks ago I got a request for a squirrel applique. I realized it has been a while since I added any new applique blocks. Yikes! I really can’t believe I haven’t included a squirrel sooner. Our backyard is teaming with wildlife… totally encouraged by us. We provideRead More →

Surprise! I’m not a great secret keeper (understatement noted), so it’s been driving me crazy not to share the progress of our new web design with you guys. I must admit I had very little to do with the actual change… it was all Michelle’s design and Tim’s computer skills. My contribution?Read More →

This giveaway is now closed. The winner will be announced shortly. EDIT: Daria is from Israel. She will ship anywhere. All are welcome to enter 🙂 Several months ago I introduced you to Daria, from Art of Felting, when we commissioned her to needle felt a tapestry to commemorate myRead More →

Since I haven’t actually completed any project this week, thought I might share what I’ve been up to. First, I’ve been busy with my funky chair. And when I say funky, I really mean FUNKY! Here is a sneak peek of just a corner. Trust me, the whole chair isRead More →

In a blink of an eye, your little fairies can be wearing flowers in their hair. Although these elastic headbands hold just 1 flower, using the same pattern you could easily fill the crown with a bouquet of blooms! Using a purchased elastic headband, scraps of felt, and a few glass seed beads, your wee onesRead More →

So… here’s the low down on the panda… Michelle, you know Michelle, my lovely, talented daughter and partner in crime here at Wee Folk Art? Well, she comes to me a week ago and said: “I have a request. Can you make a panda applique? I need to make t-shirtsRead More →

When I was a little girl, I fell in love with Black Eyed Susans. They weren’t flowers in my mother’s garden, but rather they grew wild in the park by our house. I was intrigued by how alike and how different they were from daisies, another favorite. Once I hadRead More →

With the high temps we’ve been having this summer, many of my poor flowers are showing the strain. But here, appliqued on black felt, a garden of rainbow flowers are bright and perky! Made entirely with one small petal, these flowers look awesome together but one by itself would lookRead More →

I was working on project (which I will share later in the week) and I needed a moon and stars applique. I was rather surprised I had never designed one for Wee Folk Art, but since I needed to design one now, I made one up as an applique block. Designed to fitRead More →

With the 4th of July just days away, here in the USA, many streets and buildings proudly display our flag and many flag based decorations. Today we are sharing our version of the flag… an applique with lots of "heart" for our nation 🙂 My plan was to turn this intoRead More →
