Hello there, I hope you are slowly getting settled into some form of routine after the holidays. I am still in a little bit of post-holiday catch up, but I wanted to share with you some more felt accessories I made.
As with any new skills I try to learn, I reached to YouTube to find some inspiration and learning for making felt crafts. There I found Deidre’s channel – fLOhRA Design. She shared several very useful tips for crafting with felt and I am using several of them in today’s projects. You should definitely check her channel out if you are into crafting with felt.
For these projects, I did use the Contour Floweret Posies Steel rule die set from Spellbinders. I cut out my felt, faux leather fabric and one more jeans-blue color fabric I have had for ages using these dies. The faux leather one, I bought from my local Hobby Lobby, but I am not able to find anything like it online in gold color. I am linking to a similar one in Hot Pink below – I think that will work by itself, or at least it will help you find something similar in your local craft stores. The blue fabric is something I have had for ages. Don’t recall the source, but I think if you explore in the same large 8″ ribbon section in Hobby Lobby, it will give you some ideas. Any very-stiff jeans colored fabric will work in its place.
These ones are real easy to put together. I cut out the largest flower and separated each of the petals. Then I went to town making their patterns, hot glueing them together and attaching them to the headband with a piece of felt for backing and another line of hot glue. To add a little bit of something special, I also hot glued a heart shaped button to the last felt heart.
I also tried to take multiple pictures of them so that I can show all the different textures going on here – the wooly felt, the smooth and shiny faux leather and the textured – matte finish of the other material.
For your convenience, I am sharing links to the supplies I’ve used or the ones you can use for making similar cards – click on the picture or link to go directly to the product.
