I have become obsessed with hand-sewing felt projects lately! This is a felt checkbook cover, with a flannel embellishment on the front. I used a blanket stitch around the edge to finish it.

Close-ups on the applique/embroidery:

One of my more recent projects was made from this book - "One-Yard Wonders" by Rebecca Yaker and Patricia Hoskins. It has amazing ideas and designs, that you can make from just one yard of fabric.

The pattern I made is called "Child's Messenger Bag"... Pretty unoriginal, but I can't think of a better name at the moment, so there is it. =] Following are some pictures of the tote:

Sorry I don't have any step-by-step photos for this post. I actually did take them while I was making this tote, but sadly they were accidentally deleted. Hopefully I'll have better luck during my next project.

Felt Owl Pin

This is a little felt pin I made this week when I saw a picture of one, and decided I wanted to make it. I designed the pattern pieces myself, but it was very self-explanatory. I will be selling these at the Farmer's Market this summer in case anyone is interested. =)
