The Felt House - etsy shop

I've finally opened my etsy shop! I've launched it with 3 different versions of my flower card, blue, purple and pink (the orange is coming soon).

Hopefully I'll get time to work on some more colour versions this week, or maybe even an easter version. I can't wait for my first sale!

Cupcake card

This week I decided to make a cupcake card for my friend's birthday as she loves cooking and making cakes.

I sewed pleats in the cupcake case to give it a bit of texture. I assembled all the parts and added some stuffing in the middle before attaching it to the card. A button 'cherry' finished it off.

The Felt House - new blog header

I've just designed and uploaded a new blog header based on my blog name. It's my first attempt at a custom header. The felt house took a couple of evenings to make and kind of evolved as I went along. I stitched the windows and the door on with matching thread and stitched all the sides together with a contrasting purple thread. Had a slight mishap when I stitched the back on the wrong way round and ended up with 2 chimneys (I don't think you can tell that I had to cut one off)!
