Michael Ann of Michael Ann Made shared with us this cute little bunny felt craft.Β This could be a fun craft to do with your kids who want to learn to sew by enlarging the pattern a few percent on a copy machine, and using yarn and a yarn sewing needle to stitch it together.Β The full tutorial and pattern can be found here.

This craft requires adult’s supervision as the use of needle is needed.

Thank you Michael Ann for this lovely sharing.

Craft’s What is – Felt

Posted by Merryn | Posted in Crafts by Materials, Felt, What is | Posted on 17-02-2010 | 4,549 views

Tags: ,

Felt is a non-woven cloth that is produced by matting, condensing and pressing woolen fibres. While some types of felt are very soft, some are tough enough to form construction materials. Felt can be of any color, and made into any shape or size.

Felt is widely used in craft projects as the outcome are often natural and soft.

I use felt for the scarf, pipe cleaner for the hands and foam and ribbon for the ear muffs. The snowman is ready to cheer up your wall. If you wish to convert it into a mobile, just do two of it and paste it back to back. Tie a string over it and hang. Nice :D

A Crafty-Crafted Friend's submission of a felt corset purse.

Craft submitted by Ayie of http://jifphotojournal.blogspot.com/

Materials she used:
a piece of felt fabric/material
threads and needle for sewing
jewel/earring/ or any button or ribbon as ornament
beading/jewelry wire or laces

Ayie said,

Sorry I wasn’t able to document each and every step since I wasn’t so sure if it will come out good.Β  I cut the felt in 2 equal rectangles and trimmed lower side to give the corset emphasis. Stitched both pieces together (sewn part inside) to form the purse.Β  After having the body done i decorated the “face” with running stitch using darker shade thread.Β  To achieve a roundish bust form,pull the stitches a bit tighter.Β  Work on the handle with the leftover strip and attach to the purse.Β  Voila, a simple corset purse!
