Iron Craft #21: Felt

This week's challenge:

"It’s time for a materials challenge. This time we are using a favorite of crafters, and one that is so versatile, felt." (Courtesy of Just Craft Enough)

Oooohhhhh! I love felt!  It's one of my favourite materials to work with.  It doesn't need finishing, it comes in every colour, it's so fun and easy to cut out. 

Love Love Love Love it!

Of course, I had a busy weekend at Scattered Seeds and weeks of prep for the show, so I didn't have much time.  I actually thought about, created the pattern for and sewed my project yesterday.

At the Scattered Seeds show I must have been asked if I have anything with owls on it about 674,932,067 times.  Apparently Winnipeg hasn't realized that the owl craze is over.


I thought my kids needed some owls.

Meet Ginger and Sugarpants.

Lane named hers (the purple one) Ginger.  I have no idea how she came up with that name.  Logan named his Sugarpants - ummmm.... yeah.....

Here's Ginger.  Made out of felt. Hand stitched belly, wings, eyes and beak.  I then put a back on her and stuffed her a little bit with scrap fabric. 

Logan came home from school for lunch yesterday and demanded that I make him one because Lane's was so cute.  So here's Sugarpants.  Made the same way. 

I will be getting the pattern and tutorial ready for Tuesday next week, so if you'd like to make a Ginger or Sugarpants of your own, you'll be able to :D

I think the owl craze if far from over. My owl granny square gets so many hits. I think this will be a popular tutorial. By the way, I love that he named his sugarpants (is this what he hears dad calling mom?!)
