Playing with Felt

April 1, 2012

A couple of weeks ago I got the book Big Little Felt Universe by Jeanette Lim.  It is full of sweet little felt handsewn projects. I’ve never really sewn with felt before, I mean, a little bit, but not much.  But when I saw some of the patterns inside I couldn’t resist buying it (especially for under $9).  Creamie has had a lot of fun pointing out all the things she wants me to make for her.  And yesterday I made my first little project.

Felt Lipstick.  Doesn’t get cuter than that.  She has been carrying it around and trying it out since I finished the last stitch.

Yep, it even has a cutie little removable lid.  It kills me.  The whole thing is only 3″ tall.  Which is a lot of very tiny little stitches.  Particularly considering it has 17 different pieces…

But even with 17 teensy beensy pieces, it only took me a little over and hour to make.  My kind of project.

pucker up

And she’s such a girly girl it’s her kind of project too.  Win win all around.  Jeanette Lim, the author and designer of the book also has an etsy shop full of beautiful and amazing felt patterns.  I want every single thing in her shop.  Seriously.

    I’ve considered buying that book, too. It looks so cute.. but MAN! 17 pieces for that tiny lipstick.. that sounds awful.

    You’re daughter is such a cutie pie!
