Felt must be the most hardworking fabric in craft.
Sturdy, versatile, available in a rainbow of colours, able to stand alone or be stitched or embellished, felt really is the grafter of the material world.
I love the bright colours felt is available in and the way it is able to take whatever your put on it, from simple red felt with white blanket stitch around it to an intricate embroidered decoration. Felt is bold in colour and construction and is perfect for re-creating faces, animals, flowers and illustrations. Whilst I don’t really go in for cutesy animal makes, Mollie Makes has a very sweet felt based freebie with this month’s issue which I will definitely be making…
Here’s my round-up of the best felt makes on the net. I love the bold, single use of colour in these makes, some great inspiration.
