Getting ready for craft fairs!

Welcome back! I'm working on cards and making things out of felt for some craft fairs I am in this month and next. I am borrowing my sisters sewing machine, before that I was trying to make the felt things by hand, so totally time consuming! The "wood stump" pin cushion was sewn all by hand. Everyone thinks its a cupcake so I am changing tactics on that one and will be making cupcakes from now on. MY new felt creation though is the tissue pockets. They are so fun to make and I made a whole batch! My faves are the fruit/vegie ones. They are saying eat your vegies and fruit to avoid the sniffles!!
Check out my these and other crafts of mine at:!

Wood stump pin cushion

I personally think this is the cutest thing ever, so far, that I have made out of felt. I am on a mission to make a whole forest of them! So they are pin cushions made in the shape of a wood stump with hand embroidered "wood grain" on them. I am experimenting with different shades of embroidery thread and adding woodland creatures to the wood stump. It is exciting! Check back for more of my sidetracked project from greeting cards!
