Addiction

If anyone is as addicted to making pretty things as I am- do not read any further. Do not read any further- because- yes- oh yes- here is another fun project to try.

Cutting wool felt is a very easy thing to do. I love that it is the absence of material that actually makes the wool look like something. It took me forever to figure out how to cut this grass.

I marked my material with an embroidery water soluable marker (it faded before I even had to add water) and cut with small scissors.

This one I made cut out leaves.

Also, the left over leaves could be made into something fun too.

what a cool project! I love the negative leaf cutouts...I think I might be needing a new table runner soon :)

This is great, love the leaves. It would be pretty too, w/a fabric under it as well!

I remember seeing a photo of these felt leaves (but I think it was a bit different photo) and absolutely being drawn to them. Great project, great photo. I really like these felt leaves.

These are so simple and pretty! I also love making things out of wool felt.
