Show & Tell - Festive Felt

Hi you lovely clever people,
Thank you for dropping by today - hopefully you'll leave a little bit inspired by some of the neat things others have been creating!

Show & Tell Thursday's

I'd never really used felt before until recent months.  Subconsciously I think I had an idea that perhaps it would tear or look "handled" quickly from trying to work with it.  Anyhoo needless to say I was wrong and it's fun and easy to work with!  And the Falalala book had me sold on it!

Two items I loved making from it:  a star garland and the paisley sock ornament.


Both for Miriam for our Advent Swap.  Notice the blue, purple and green? and the Paisley? : )


What materials have you worked with that surprised you?

Thanks for linking up and of course we have the awesome giveaway from Lydia's Treasures this month!  Photo coming soon!
