Hello everyone! Welcome to Can You Felt It? - Waffle Flower Blog Hop
! Today is the 5th of the month and also the day that the design team girls get together and share some fun craft projects using our newest stamps and dies released in April.
We have teamed up with Benzie Design
to share some felt projects today!
I used the Promise
felt pack on my project.
I ordered a few extra pieces of white felt (9"x12") to make my cloud. I free-hand drew a cloud on the felt and stitched two pieces together and stuffed it with polyester stuffings.
I then cut small pieces from the felt in the Promise
pack to die cut with our Mailable 3D Bow Template Die
The felt cuts like butter.
And I like how the colors compliment each other.
Our Mailable 3D Bow Template Die is all in one piece and you don't need any adhesive to assemble it. Here is a closeup on the back to show how the tail is tucked in.
I then cut some letters from both cork and felt for my sentiment.
I like the DCWV adhesive backed cork the best for die cutting projects. You can get 15 sheets of 6"x6" in a pack for $5.99 at Jo-Ann Store, where you can easily find a 40% off coupon for.
The alphabet die I used was from Lifestyle Crafts / We R Memory Keepers, I'm sorry that the particular one I used is no longer available in the store, but you can find more of them here in WRMK's official store
, they are $15 each and you can use code WAFFLE for 20% off your entire order.
I know some people are saying that the dies with ejection foams like the alphabet die I used here cannot cut felt, but I tried and it cuts fine in my die cut machine. You may experiment with different shim combinations to get yours working.
A quick tip: Cut your felt to fit your alphabet die so nothing is wasted!
I then used some floss to attached the bows to my cloud.
It's raining bow in my room!
I had so much fun making this project and I hope that you are inspired to make something from felt as well!
