“I said ‘allo!’ but that’s close enough.”
So now that I finally gave my gift to my friend, I can show it off! Here’s the worm from Labyrinth. I made it with felt and doll eyes. I didn’t have a pattern and didn’t think to create one to share, I apologize. I used three colors, beige, red and blue. The hardest part was trying to make a fluffy fringe. This was regular sheet felt, and if you tug on it too hard it just pulls right off. Teasing it with a needle works better.
If you look up felt sewing you will discover there are actually three crafts. One craft sews together felt cloth to make objects like I did here, one craft takes raw wool and jabs it with a needle to create objects (I’m going to look into that more) and the last one knits with wool and then shrinks the objects down by “felting” them in the wash.
Here are a couple other things I made:
I painted wooden teapot ornaments, using white paint and markers. I used sharpie markers for everything but the tie-dye one, where I used washable markers and then watered them down to run into each other.
I made comfort bunnies for two friends who are ill. I used this pattern from Jo So and So.
Right now I’m knitting a cowl to give to someone as part of a library lobby day. I’m working on the second draft of a mystery novel, trying to straighten out the sequence of events and researching hurricanes.
