Hey peeps! It's the final challenge of 2011 with Just Us Girls! This week it's all about using felt on your project! Don't you just love felt? Memories from the earliest days of crafting are rich with felt festooned artwork. It's fluffy, it's doesn't fray and it's meat and potatoes for lifetime crafters and beginners alike. Wow! Even I didn't know how much I loved felt 'til just now...lol. So won't you pick up your felt scraps or cut into a new sheet and make something with us?
I used felt to make a tiny hangtag on this lil' chick beanie I made myself! Woohoo! I must admit I am pretty stoked about this project! I am not a knitter or crochet-er of any kind but with the help of a Knifty Knitter I was able to take this little hat from conception to finished product. Can I just say addictive??! We actually have two new babies coming in the next few months to my extended family so I have a good excuse to make more!
Beanie love aside, the challenge is about FELT and I used this darling chick stamp from Endless Creatons Inc and black Staz on ink to stamp direct to craft felt. A tiny snip of orange felt for the beak, black fabric paint for the eyes and stickles to add a little sparkle. Spellbinders rectangle and scalloped rectangle nesties makes the foundation of the tag and a simple straight stitch border seals the deal on this tag.
I wanted to make sure the recipient knows this is a one of a kind made just for them so i broke out a Stampin Up! stamp I've had for a while.
You know who else are one of a kind???? All of my treasured online friends (that's YOU, baby!) who make time in their day to stop by Paper Daydream. It really means a lot to me to be wrapping up my third year of blogging having met so many wonderful people through the common bond of craft and creativity. Thanks for sharing so selflessly with me over the years. I can't wait to see what 2012 brings us! But before we leave 2011 in our memory vaults, one last round with the talented girls from Just Us Girls!
Ok, friends, cheers to a happy, healthy, prosperous and creative NEW YEAR! *mwah*
