Now that the handmade gifts are taken care of, I have been having some relaxing fun with wool felt.
I love working with felt. No need to worry about finishing seams or leaving raw edges...
And the color is amazing! Saturated color!
By far, my favorite felt is 100% wool!!! Not a blend of wool and rayon. The blend is much cheaper, but not as lovely in appearance or quality.
So, here is a last minute idea as you wrap up those last few presents or put together a plate of goodies.
Add a homemade tag/ornament! Easy to do with wool felt!
I simply drew a heart template on freezer paper. Pressed my heart to felt and cut around with pinking shears!
I added a tree trunk with brown felt and stitched in place...then using perle cotton or embroidery floss stitch some branches!
Cut another heart for the back of the tag, and stitch the two together (wrong sides facing) with floss or perle cotton. I caught the tails of my loop with my stitching. Leave an opening and stuff with poly-fill or scraps of batting.
Simple and quick!
Not only does it jazz up a package, but it is a great keepsake that can be hung on the tree!
We are on the homestretch! Are you all ready?
