Fun with felt and the last 2 interesting facts!



There are lots of birthdays coming up plus it is almost the end of term and I decided to make the teacher and assistant something rather than buy. So the evenings have turned into a little production line, this is the result so far. The brooches work really well attached to the front of a card, they can be removed after the event and hey presto, you have your gift! This lot is using some more of the printed felt I got from Coats Crafts UK and also 1 solitary felted ball made from their 'Filz' fiber range. I have yet to perfect my wet felting technique and this is the only ball that stayed in one piece, so any tips or advice on how to do it is welcome!.



This lot are made using felt from my ever increasing stash and some patchwork and Rowan fabric. The green, brown and orange one is for a friend, who wears a lot of brown and orange, I just hope she likes it.





The pink and brown one is actually for ....... me!. Which leads me to intesting facts no's 6 & 7,

Today is my birthday, I am 37 and the brooch is my present to myself. We even have a babysitter tonight and are going out for a meal without the children for the first time in ages.

And, yesterday evening, I became an aunty again. My youngest brother and his partner had a little baby girl, Pollyanna, weighing in at 6lbs 10ozs so congratulations to them all.
