Felt is F-U-N!

I love to tell people I can't sew... because my mother is a wonderful seamstress that can make anything from a formal gown, to a coat, to gorgeous window treatments. Whenever I turn on the sewing machine it breaks, or clogs, or tangles, or whatever- it just doesn't work for me. So, I stitch. And felt is the perfect fabric for me to stitch on because all you do is cut and it doesn't ravel, which means no hemming, or sewing pieces together.

I started making these cute felt owls a while back, mainly for scrapbook embellishments, but I took it one step further and stitched one on a t-shirt for Anna. It turned out so cute, I made one for all my nieces in different colors. Here is Anna's:

And then I got the itch to stitch some brooches. So, I put these together:
Full of felt, fabric, tulle, and buttons, they are super cute on denim jackets and beanie style hats. They will be for sale at Temptations and the packaging is as cute as the pin itself- a great gift!
Until next time, may you be as happy as Wrigley with a jar of peanut butter.
