Playing with felt now!

I spent the day making this little felt Valentine - my first attempt at embroidery going beyond a blanket stitch and a bear nose!   I had so much fun making it but what do I do with it now?!!   I plan to start working on a Fairy Bear this weekend, maybe I'll give it to her and she'll be a Valentine Fairy ... yes, I think that's what I'll do!  That's my favorite kind of  "play" ... making something I can use with my bears!  xoxo

  3. I love this! And it will look so pretty paired with a bear.

    Felt and embroidery are my favorite things to play with.

    There is a seller on etsy I buy from, she has a wool blend felt in every color under the rainbow. She sells them in packs of colors that all go together. It is really nice stuff.

    Just in case you now need to stock up. Here is her address: http://www.etsy.com/shop/giantdwarf?section_id=5960031

  6. Thank you so much, Lynn! I found it was really relaxing but it took me most of the day to make - I'm slow because I'm new (I think)! Great fun, though ;O) Hugs, Janice
