It's time for the monthly Design Team Creative Challenge from My Favorite Things. This month we were challenged to create projects using MFT's fabulous Felt.
I created a couple of fun projects to share with you all.
My first project is a sweet eyeglass case. I have a hard sided case for my reading glasses, and I find that it's too bulky to carry around in my purse; so this was the perfect project for me to make.
I began by cutting a piece of Steel Grey felt to 8" x 10". I then cut the top two corners off by measuring down 3-1/2" on the 10" side, and across 2-1/2" on the 8" side.
I then applique'd the flowers, leaves, and border pieces before folding and stitching the case together.
The applique'd flowers from the Gerbera Daisy Die-namics & Upsy-Daisy Die-namics were created with the following colors of felt: Sweet Tooth, Banana Split, and Gumdrop Green. I blanket stitched all around the edges of the case.
I created the scalloped flap edge with the Stitched Scallop Edges Die-namics, as well as the Blueprints 2 Die-namics.
I then sewed on a Steel Grey Button, and cut a button hole to fit.
My glasses fit inside perfectly, and will be handy to carry with me in my sweet little felt holder. :)
My second project is a sweet felt doily for my table. I die-cut oodles of snowflakes using the Pierced Snowflakes Die-namics, and hot glued them together to created a beautiful accent for my holiday table. Since I chose snowflakes, I'll be able to keep this out all through the winter. It would be fun to created one using hearts and red felt, wouldn't it? This was an easy project, and a lot of fun to create!
Here's a slightly different viewpoint. The felt I used is all Sweet Tooth. (I need a new package asap!)
Thanks so much for stopping by, friends! Be sure to swing by the MFT Blog for links to the other designers' felt creations.
Have a beautiful day!
