Lots of embroidery thread and felt - that's what's on my workdesk this week. I thought it was about time I started making some stuff for our craft fair stall in November. I had seen some pincushions and keyrings on Etsy and Pinterest made from felt, and decided to have a go! The shapes were all cut out using Nesties and Sizzix dies - I'm sure its OK to cut felt with them - hopefully it won't make them blunt or anything - it really gives a much more professional finish than using scissors. I used beads for the eyes and nose on the dog and stitched on co-ordinating ribbon and bows so they could hang up. I'll probably do a few of the heart keyrings/handbag fobs in different colours.
