When I saw the huge red and green felt stockings at the Dollar Tree, I just knew I had to make another poinsettia wreath. This wreath was made with one stocking and a wreath form which I cut from a leftover box. So yes, it cost $1! Felt can be expensive, and this is a
This Sizzix Poinsettia petals die has gotten quite the workout from me lately. I love the paper and the aluminum can version, but there is nothing quite like a felt flower wreath, in my opinion. For this project, I did the same thing I showed you for the paper poinsettia wreath, except instead of gluing
This is the first time I have used washi tape, and now I understand the hype surrounding it. It is very forgiving and re-positionable, comes in tons of prints and colors, and is inexpensive. I found the tape used in this wreath in the office supply section at Target, where it costs $4 for a
This decorative felt basket is easy to whip up, costs next to nothing, and can be made to match practically any decor style. When you see how simple this project is, you will have them for every season end every room. Irina from Irina’s Cute Box walks you through the process in the following step
I have been loving felt ever since putting together 60+ felt projects. Here are a couple of coin purses made from old sweaters, with Sizzix cut wool shapes needle punched for embellishment.

This was quite a surprising round-up to put together. I guess I thought of felt as a winter craft supply, but not so. Spring and summer projects everywhere are using the stuff. With needle felting, you can easily “paint” in 3D with roving wool, creating anything you can think of. Or grab some salvage wool
Here is what I have been working on… I can’t stop knitting!This is the first time I have ever knitted two items at once on the same circular needle. I feel like a real knitter now. These are a simple k2 p2 ribbed pattern knit with peruvian wool and lightly machine felted. I will from
It is crunch time folks, and I am knitting myself right into an arthritis diagnosis. I do this every Christmas. Handmade mania with an emphasis on wooly treasures to temper the winter freezes.My nephew wanted fingerless mitts and here is what I came up with (after making 3 oddly shaped gloves I would rather forget).
My friend Megan is a mushroom farmer, so I always keep an eye out for mushroom crafts to whip up for her. These are the felt mushrooms I made from a free pattern I found at kathrynivy.com. They were fun to make, and fulfilled my need for instant gratifications, as they did not take long.
