Wool felt projects

I'm so excited, look at the right side of my page, I have a FOLLOWER! Marty an experienced blogger has been kind enough to follow me. Check out her beautiful blog at: Hopefully someday my blog will grow up to look as pretty as Marty's.

I've been playing with wool and wool felt the past few weeks. I already posted a picture of my Pumpkin Valley Pillow which used felted wool and some cotton fabric as the backround. The next two projects I've finished were done using a wool and polyester blend. I decided to use the blend because it's cheaper and I wanted to practice before I start my Snowman mat.

The first project is a candle mat: (the backround is gray as shown in the middle pic, not sure why it appears blue in the other pictures).

You can see I still need some practice on my stitches.

My next project was a "cheater" (eye glass) holder. I made it bright on purpose so I as long as I put the glasses in it I'll be able to find them. I made up the pattern myself. I love felt because it doesn't unravel.

doesn't look like too much yet

I told you it was bright.

I feeling brave so I'm going to start my snowman mat, it's made out of wool. Hope I can get it done by Christmas.
The blank spaces will have hats as well. I will stitch down the hats and then add the snowman's faces. I'll post more pictures as I go along.


  1. Those are really cute, Ronda! Amazing what a talented artist can make out of something so basic as felt! :-)

    1. Thanks Irene. I like embroidery and find that I tend to complete smaller projects. In January I'm going to try a BOM (block of the month) wall hanging maybe by breaking it into small bites I'll finish it.

  2. Those turned out great Ronda! Welcome to the wonderful world of blogland. There's so much great inspiration out there, and so many fabulous bloggers. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and following. I'm so happy to return the follow, and I look forward to seeing more of your projects.

    I'm co-hosting a Christmas link party on December 7th, and I'd love it if you would stop by and link any Christmas projects you've created. Hope to see you there!

    Tuula :)
