Hand Sewing with Wool Felt
As most of you know my foray into crafting is very recent. There are so many crafts out there just waiting to be discovered. I first heard about Kata Golda's wonderful book Hand Sewn Felt this fall when a bunch of the craft blogs I read reviewed it. I liked what I read and after checking out her lovely website I decieded to order the book.
I had done a very limited amount of hand sewing before I got this book and most of it was playing around with felt over the past few months. I had the book for a while and I spent a lot of time looking at all the projects before I decided to tackle this bag. I ordered the felt from Ohma Felt and a few days after it got here I started the bag. The directions were very easy to follow. It took about 20 minutes to cut out the felt, including the little dog, into the pieces that I needed. I spent 2 evenings watching a episode of season 2 of Mad Men completing it. It was that easy .
D loves her bag. She put her little toy dogs in it and has been carrying it around. It's a really good feeling to see your child playing and enjoying something that you made for her.
