Mini felt picture

Remember the embroidery with felt from the last post?

So i made a picture, and it is already hanging on the hall...

Now, here is how i did it...
First i glue the back part of the fabric, in a very thick cardboard...
Then i made a nice finish with a darker fabric... (like a professional.... no?....)

Then i got some string, helped with two tiny rounds of felt....

And why not, my so proud label in the back...HA HA

Hope you liked my idea...

By the way i forgot to tell you that maybe my knitting mojo as return...
I'm starting with a triangular scarf, a very small thing, maybe that was my problem, after i did that huge cardigan, i got tired.
So I'm starting small again...
will show you more on my next post.

Embroidery and felt fabric = good combination

I've just finish this mini embroidery and felt work.
I enjoy it very much.
Is already out of that wood frame, and glued in a very hard cardboard paper, in a 10 x 12 cm.
i was thinking of doing a picture with it.
Let's see, that will be a photo for my next post.

This embroidery, i made it a long time ago, but forgot to post about it.

The party is over...
Very cute
BUT, where should i use it
As a applique for a bag???
For another picture???

Please can someone give me some lights here...

While my mojo for knitting is still off line...

I've been playing with some felt fabric.

One felt basket, and my love tree.

What do you think?

Ballet bag and other stuff...

I think I've lost my knitting mojo somewhere...

So to compensate I've changed to fabric.

Don't ask me what happened, i just don't feel like it. This as been for several weeks now.

Not happy about, knitting and crochet do have importance in my life, i like to watch TV while doing it.
And actually lately I'm a little bit frustrated, because keeping my hands busy while watching TV doesn't let me to fall a sleep in the middle of a movie!! It is my therapy...

I also like to sew, but don't have TV were the sewing machine is...

So lately I've been doing some mini work with fabric, for our necessities.

N. needed a little bag for the ballet clothes.

The embroidery was made a long time ago, and i just made it applique in the front.
With two little hearts hanging, cute :)

Now, to the testing...
Tried to make a market bag, with a way to keep it tidy inside my bag.
This was the result...

Just for you to see how small she goes...

And just to show, that a long time ago, make two months ago i made these cute room slippers in crochet.

From this book, that i got for the local library.

The book has some very good ideas, a little bit old, but that is all you can get in the local library.
