>Being productive – Être productive

> The Kool Kreatures (thanks for the name Kim!!!) I made last weekend have all been adopted! So I told the students I would be making more during this weekend. When I’m doing similar things like these, I work in an “assembly line” type of way. I start by choosing my colors and then cutting all the shapes I need. After that, I start sewing the face elements: smaller felt pieces, buttons, embroidery, etc. Then, I sew the big pieces together to make the Kreatures, stuff the shapes with Polyfill and finally, sew them shut. Doing all the sewing by … Continue reading >Being productive – Être productive

>Foughnut anyone? – Un feignet peut-être?

> Yes, you read that right: foughnut. As in Felt Doughnut! After creating a bunch of creatures, I decided to try something new. And this little doughnut was born! It’s far from being perfect but I love it anyway. Just looking at it makes me happy! I especially love the beads/sprinkles. I love the names being suggested in the comments from yesterday’s post. Don’t be shy if you have any ideas! Oui, vous avez bien lu: un feigne. Comme pour Beignet Feutrine! Après avoir créé une série de créatures, j’ai décidé d’essayer quelque chose de nouveau. Et ce petit beigne … Continue reading >Foughnut anyone? – Un feignet peut-être?

>The return of the felt creatures – Le retour des créatures en feutrine

> Sounds like a bad movie title, doesn’t it? It had been a while since making my last felt creature. I put a few of my earlier creations in a box as special gifts for my students and they have been really popular so I decided to make a few more, just for them. I wanted the shapes to be simple and I wanted as few details as possible. They are all sewn by hand. I love how they turned out, my favourite being, of course, the feline-like creature. I want to find a name for these types of creatures … Continue reading >The return of the felt creatures – Le retour des créatures en feutrine

>Felt tea bag – Sachet de thé en feutrine

> When I saw this tutorial on how to make a felt tea bag, I knew I had to make one for myself. It was very easy to make but I think I over-stuffed it. I still like how it turned out but next time I’ll use less stuffing. Quand j’ai vu ce tutoriel (en anglais) pour faire un sachet de thé en feutring, je savais que je m’en ferais un. C’était très facile à faire mais je pense que je l’ai trop bourré. J’aime quand même le résultat mais la prochaine fois, je prendrai moins de bourre.

>Tshirt Patchwork

> Leftover pieces from cut-up t-shirts. Some stitching and embroidery by hand. I will keep embellishing some of the squares and then will probably turn this into a pillow. Or had squares all around and turn it into a small blanket. Time will tell… Des restes de t-shirts coupés. De la couture et broderie à la main. Je vais continuer d’embellir certains carrés puis transformer le tout en coussin. Ou ajouter des carrés autour et le transformer en couverture. Seul le temps nous le dira… Continue reading >Tshirt Patchwork

>Leaves in my felt journal – Feuilles dans mon journal en feutrine

> I’m sort of obsessed with making leaves lately. So I decided to make a page for my felt journal with leaves on it. I played with a few stitches. Simple but I like it. Je suis un peu obsédée par la fabrication de feuilles dernièrement. Alors j’ai décidé de faire une page pour mon journal en feutrine avec des feuilles dessus. J’ai joué avec quelques points de broderie. Simple mais je l’aime bien. Continue reading >Leaves in my felt journal – Feuilles dans mon journal en feutrine

>Felt journal page – Page de journal en feutrine

> I haven’t played in my felt journal in a while so I thought I’d get back to it this week. It sort of looks like a landscape but really, I was just trying some new stitches and this is what it now looks like. Il y a longtemps que je n’avais pas joué dans mon journal en feutrine alors j’ai pensé m’y remettre cette semaine. Ça ressemble un peu à un paysage mais en réalité, j’essayais simplement de nouveaux points de broderie et c’est ce que ça donne maintenant.
