Because I 'felt' like it
I recently had a hankering to play with felt…don't know why but it reminds me a lot of needlework during my school days, and felt is so easy to work with, it very relaxing I think.
So, many months ago I bought a cute set of patterns from http://www.sewsweet.co.uk , printed it……..and then left it sitting in a folder!
Finally, I managed to find the time to make my first felt character and here he is. He was made very easily during and evening, whilst watching TV. Once i had made him, I was hooked, so since then I have been dabbling with other Christmas characters and some little baubles too.
I think crafting is all about fun, and you shouldn't feel tied to one particular thing…sometimes I want to paper craft…sometimes I want to sew or crochet, or make jewellery. It's all good as far as I am concerned, just us long as you are being creative and getting a little buzz of satisfaction from whatever you are doing.
So…..even though this is a paper craft blog…..here's my little felt snowman, with not a scrap of paper in sight.
I hope he has brought you a little smile today.
